Manufacturing Technologies of the Future -

the Collaborative Research Center 814 - Additive Manufacturing deals with the basic research of additive manufacturing processes.

In the future, parts should be produced from plastic or metal without specific tooling. Away from rapid prototyping to manufacturing, these technologies are empowered by the CRC 814 to fabricate serial components in the desired quality.

Since 2011, more than 35 scientists are working at the FAU on this interdisciplinary major project.In July 2015, the second funding period was started.

We would like to give an overview of our goals, the structure and the people involved and hope to inspire you for these exciting, visionary production technologies on our website.
