Process Technology

The chair uses two investment casting plants of different sizes (casting weights max. 10 kg or max 0,6 kg), in which innovative cooling technologies can be realized. At the Joint Institute of Advanced Materials and Processes in Fürth ( an injection molding machine for producing complex moldings from powder-binder mixtures as well as furnaces for debinding and sintering are available. In cooperation with the group Additive Manufacturing, the team is also engaged in additive manufacturing of Nickel-base superalloy parts, in particular with the single-crystalline solidification from the powder bed.
