Steel

The combination of wire and powder tested at the Fraunhofer IPT resulted in hardness increases of the material of up to 30 per cent. (Image: Fraunhofer IPT)

Flexible & cost-effective hybrid cladding process developed

The new method is significantly more cost-effective than powder processes while offering greater material flexibility than wire processes

LMD and LPBF can be used to produce composite materials with thin layers and a range of different properties. (Image Fraunhofer ILT)

AM used to produce metal composites

The 3D printing method can be used to produce a ferrous composite material of balanced hardness and toughness – similar to Damascus steel.
