Metallic Materials Technology Lab

The mission of Metallic Materials Technology Lab is to develop innovative processes for the construction of metallic structural components by means of additive manufacturing technologies. The laboratory has an EBM (Electron Beam Melting) ALM (Additive Layer Manufacturing) machine with a working volume of 200 x 200 x 380 mm.

The laboratory is also equipped with a system for the dust recovery and software for the job preparation in additive technology (interface between CAD systems and 3D printing systems).
