Metal Alloy Powder Production
The Chair of Material Physics has infrastructure to produce individual metal powders for additive manufacturing. The powders have a rapid solidified microstructure and have an adequate powder size to be used in metal laser or electron beam powder bed process. Please contact the chair for further information and research opportunities.
Beam Powder Bed Processs
The Montanuniversitaet has a focus on the research in laser or electron beam powder bed processes. Studies help to develop the right processing parameter for reaching dense, defect free parts. Heating platforms adjust a controlled heating cycle of the parts. The usage of protection gas or vacuum environments prevent oxidation. Please contact for further question and research opportunities the following chairs:

AM Extrusion and Filament Production processes
The AM Filament Extrusion offers a wide range of parts and materials. The Chair of Polymer Processing has the expertise and the experimental infrastructure to provide small (100g) to bigger batches (20kg) batches of pure polymer or composite filament batches. Various 3D printing system offer to study the influence of the production parameters on the properties of the 3D printed parts. The research group has many experience in national and international funded research projects. So if you have further question or you are interested in research collaboration contact either Department of Industrial Liaison or the Chair of Polymer Processing directly. In cooperation with the other chairs of the Department of Polymer Engineering access to various characterisation methods and mechanical testing is given.
The Department of Polymer Engineering offers research options of 3D jetting of polymers. Two different production methodologies and equipment types are available.
- The Freeformer - contact Chair for Polymer Processing
- 3D Printing - contact the Chair for Chemistry of Polymeric Materials
In Stereolithographic Process the Montanuniversitaet has a wide range of activities. For the 3D ceramic parts Lithoz devices are in use. In polymer resins printing the materials development is coupled to the development of individual machines to reach the optimum properties of the novel polymeric materials.
