Content

FRAUNHOFER WORKSHOP SERIES (FWS) are bridging academia and industrial experts to tackle foresighted research into practical solutions. Our FWS events include background lectures, round-tables and hands-on sessions. The goal is to contribute to application-oriented research and to support the transfer of academic research to the industrial domain.

Additive manufacturing (AM) methods allow for fabrication of geometrically highly complex, multi-functional ceramic components made of different materials that could not at all or just at great cost be realized using conventional methods. Due to their working principle, AM methods are very sparing costly raw materials consumption and can be used to produce customized one-offs or small batches. Beyond small batch manufacturing issues concerning quality assurance and overall economic efficiency must first be addressed.

In this workshop, we will investigate various additive manufacturing technologies for ceramic components and ceramic-based multi-material hybrids. We will give insight on how to highly functionalize ceramic components and find out about applicable quality assurance and process optimization measures, also to address challenges and opportunities in times of “Industrie 4.0”.

  • The workshop will include several lectures and sessions to build and improve knowledge in different subtopics:
  • The road to ceramic-based additive manufacturing – about the properties of ceramic materials and the know-how to go from conventional ceramic process routes to AM and Hybrid processes
  • Challenges and oppourtunities for industry and academia
  • Progress in important ceramic-based additive manufacturing methods: fabrication with filaments (CerAM-FFF), 3D-printing of multi-material components (CerAM-T3DP), selective laser melting (SLM), lithography-based ceramic manufacturing (LCM)
  • Quality Assurance: In-line defect detection and optimization by machine learning methods
