AM - 3DPrinting

The main goal of the Additive Manufacturing (AM)/3DPrinting research line is the development of advanced novel materials (metal and polymers) to fabricate lightweight systems, passing through a bio-inspired design. The most promising features of AM is the ability to make parts that are complex in their structure, shape, size, hierarchy, surface, materials usage and functionality.

The group conducts research in all facets of additive manufacturing processes such as:

- Development of advanced structural materials (lightweight alloys and composites, titanium alloys and composites, high-temperature alloys) for Selective Laser Melting

- Characterization at the nano-scale

- Surface post processing

- Strengthen the design capabilities to produce lightweight complex shapes, non-assembly parts and bioinspired structures

- Development of new functional materials for 3D Printing


AM/3DPrinting 's Laboratories

AMMLab - The Additive Manufacturing for Metals Laboratory is equipped with a Direct Metal Laser Sintering Machine (DMLS), EOSINT M270 Xtended, and a sand-blasting machine, SD9 Northblast.

PLab - The Prototyping Laboratory is equipped with a Stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer using DLP projection, 3DLPrinter, developed by Robot Factory in Italy.

REMLab - the Reverse Engineering and Metrology Laboratory is equipped with a Gom’s Atos Compact Scan 2M and RPT 80 Roughness tester.  

Some activities are carried out in the following laboratories:
