MGA Network

member since 01.05.2019

Membership Motivation

We are a research institute that is intensively engaged in the additive production of metallic materials. We are in contact with numerous members of the network or already lead projects with network partners. We would like to participate in the exchange within the network and contribute our expertise in the field of additive manufacturing.

Network Contribution

We have know-how in the following areas: Design for additive manufacturing, material development and powder production, process know-how (selective laser melting, laser metal deposition, wire-arc additive manufacturing), testing know-how (ISO-certified and DAkks-accredited testing laboratory)
