German Partners Research Effects of Welding and Process Gas on 3D Printing

January 18, 2019

Germany–based Gefertec GmbH and Linde AG have announced a joint research project to investigate the influence of welding parameters and process gas on the 3D-printing process. Another partner in the research project is MT Aerospace AG, which will perform the mechanical tests of the produced parts. The actual 3D-printing will take place at the additive manufacturing laboratory of Fraunhofer IGCV, where Gefertec has installed a 3D-printing system, using electric arc welding. The project’s ultimate goal: high-speed production of lager parts made of titanium alloy Ti6Al4V that meet the quality requirements of the aerospace industry.
