About us

  Photonics Cluster on Campus Melaten. Fraunhofer ILT, Aachen / Volker Lannert. Photonics Cluster on Campus Melaten.

The research and development activities of the chair of Digital Additive Production DAP are realized in close collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT. The chair investigates fundamental interrelations of the Additive Manufacturing process from part design to the process itself and later operational characteristics of the build part.

In addition, associated processes such as quality management, the modeling and description of the digital process chain and efficient factory design are further focal points of research and development.

The future of 3D printing is shaped within the scope of collaborative and industrial projects from different branches and areas, for instance automotive, aerospace, turbo machinery, life science, electronics as well as tool- and mould-making.
