development and optimisation of additive processes and process chains in manufacturing and materials technology

Product design is one of the core fields of engineering. As component properties are considerably influenced by manufacturing processes, there is an increasing need to take an interdisciplinary approach to this task, drawing on product design, production and materials technology. The design process must be geared towards these properties, which are influenced by individual machining steps throughout the whole process from raw materials or semi-finished products through to the finished product itself. Since manufacturing  processes are highly developed, the challenges in this field mainly fall within the scope of production engineering research especially for the new additive processes. The main focus of Manufacturing and Materials Technology is the development and optimisation of these processes and process chains in manufacturing and materials technology including production-related component properties.
