EFESTO and MUT will also organize technology showcases and seminars to increase awareness of current state of the art in 3D Metal Printing solutions.
"This initiative is instrumental in EFESTO's mission to provide best-in-class professional grade 3D Metal Printing systems and services to the global industry. We are targeting aerospace, defense, marine, energy, construction, mining, automotive, tooling, academia and MRO industries. Our foremost objective is to delight our customers," says
"Cooperation with EFESTO is a very important part of our scientific mission at MUT'S Department of Advanced Materials and Technologies (DoAMT). As a primary teaching institute, we focus on creating well educated scientists and engineers. Equally important is our focus on research and innovation, implementing the concepts of concurrent design, manufacturing and regeneration of metallic, intermetallic (Fe-Al, Ti-Al, Ni-Al) and cermetallic components. MUT and EFESTO will definitely succeed in this enduring and mutually beneficial partnership," says Prof.
EFESTO is a high energy enterprise focused on engineering and applications using 3D Metal Printing with a focus on OPTOMEC's LENSŪ platform and its future derivatives. EFESTO operates in
Two common 3D Metal Printing technologies are Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Directed Energy Deposition (DED). In PBF, thermal energy (typically a laser or electron beam) fuses selective regions of a powder bed in a layerwise fashion. In DED, focused thermal energy (laser) is used to create a melt pool on the deposition surface and powder metal is injected to fuse the materials in a layerwise fashion. LENSŪ technology utilizes DED, offering unique capabilities for component repair, hybrid manufacturing, building large components, gradient metal layering and materials research including alloy discovery.
