Material development for additive manufacturing

Fused filament fabrication (FFF), also known as fused deposition modeling (FDM), is a generative manufacturing method for producing components, models and prototypes that are built up layer by layer from meltable plastic. At the IAM-WK, this approach was adapted to the replication of ceramic and metallic components. The process chain required for this includes the development of ceramic and metallic molding compounds for the production of filaments, the 3D printing of green parts and the subsequent heat treatment (debinding and sintering). The scalability and production of complex components with individual dimensions can be adjusted depending on the molding compound composition (ratio powder-binder system) and the nozzle diameter used.
