Young Scientist Workshop: Chemistry and Advanced Materials for Additive Manufacturing of Metals and Alloys

10 - 11 October 2019
Industriepark Wolfgang / Hanau

Die Veranstaltung wurde auf Grund der geringen Anzahl an Beitragseinreichungen abgesagt!

Metal additive manufacturing is a challenge that requires the collaboration of materials scientists, chemists, process engineers, and many others.

The Young Scientist Workshop: “Chemistry and Advanced Materials for Additive Manufacturing of Metals and Alloys” (no participation fee) will bring young scientists together to discuss how metals and alloys can be designed to meet industrial requirements.

Participants will present their recent work to discuss progress and challenges in an open atmosphere. Applications may range from electronic fine structures and devices, display architectures, precision metal printing to macroscopic turbines and screw propellers.

  • Submissions of posters are mandatory
  • Oral speeches are optional

The Workshop will highlight a series of wide ranging contributions from industries and academia:

  • Alexander Elsen, Heraeus Additive Manufacturing GmbH: Metal powders for Additive Manufacturing
  • Dr. Elena Lopez, Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS: Recent achievements in laser-based Additive Manufacturing
  • Dr. Senada Schaack, Evonik Industries AG: Additive Manufacturing of chemical reactors and devices
  • Dr. Ruben Heid, Audi AG: On the relevance of AM for the automotive industries.

A broad variety of materials and technologies for additive manufacturing methods (AM) or 3D printed objects are currently under development. Process technologies develop fast, while designers, engineers and OEMs turn the new options into products of use. However, matching industrial requirements is an immense challenge as material properties, process speed or other technical, ecological or economic issues must be taken into account.

Who: Young scientists from inorganic chemistry, materials chemistry, metallurgy, materials processing and engineering topics

  • raw materials manufacturing
  • formulation, powder handling
  • printing, welding, melting, sintering, dispensing, etc.
  • applications:
    • chemical reactor engineering
    • automotive
    • aerospace

Participants will get insights into latest materials innovations, process optimization methods and designs, e.g. for fluid dynamically optimized chemical reactors and design of optimized aerospace or automotive construction elements. The workshop shall also foster networking among the young scientists.

The Subject Division Applied Inorganic Chemistry of ProcessNet cordially welcomes you to Hanau.
