Fraunhofer Advanced Materials

Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials

The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM) Dresden carries out fundamental and applied research on problem-oriented materials and technology development for innovative sintered and composite materials, energy-related functional materials as well as cellular metallic materials. The performance spectrum includes the industrial implementation of research results up to the manufacturing of prototypical components, which are needed, for example for vehicle construction, electronics, mechanical engineering, energy technology, aerospace engineering and medical technology. Special technologies, such as additive generative manufacturing, melt spinning, melting extraction, spark-plasma sintering, micro waves sintering, metallic three-dimensional screen printing and casting technology support the materials and component development.
