Additive Manufacturing Technologies
The variety of additive manufacturing processes is impressive in terms of the type of technology implemented, performance and applications. The Association provides opportunities for all members to exchange insights into know-how and multiple requirements.
Detailed descriptions and examples of each technology can be found on the right side.
Additive Manufacturing of Injection Molding Tools with a High Gloss Surface
13.07.2016 Metal Powder Application Technology is an innovative and multifaceted additive manufacturing process that makes do without laser.
Combination of Additive and Machining Manufacturing
17.03.2016 Technology integration made by Sauer: Laser deposition welding and 5-axis milling combined intelligently makes for goodsurfaces and high component precision.
3D Real-Time Monitoring
14.03.2016 In-situ process monitoring is one of the strategic technology areas of Concept Laser, and is one which the machine manufacturer is now expanding to include the QMmeltpool 3D for three-dimensional real-time monitoring.
Automation in Additive Manufacturing Needs a Standardized Stream
14.11.2015 3D print systems are still isolated applications in process chains with a high amount of manual shares, but users want automated, quality-controlled processes. More than 90 machine manufacturers, users, automators, and research institutes collaborate in the Association.
Standardisation for Additive Manufacturing
23.11.2014 The members of the Working Group Standardisation seek a more practical and industry-oriented standardization.
Standards are the basis for the successful development of further 3D printing methods and thus ensure the functioning of global markets.

Conventional manufacturing processes in combination with additive technologies
Setting (curing) of material in a reservoir of photopolymer liquid by UV-light
Bonding of layers with the correct contour for building up parts
Liquid material is jetted on the surface and cured
A binder (glue) is selectively applied to a powder layer, unbund material is removed afterwards
SLS and SLM: Parts of the powder layer are melted by laser beam
Materials are melted, applied and left to cool
