Kick-off AutoBeam project


On Friday December 8th, 2023, we had the kick-off meeting of the publicly funded project “Autobeam”. In the consortium of

  • Trumpf SE + Co. KG
  • Oerlikon (Surface Solutions)
  • Institute for Product Development and Machine Elements – pmd
  • Institut für Produktionsmanagement, Technologie und Werkzeugmaschinen – PTW and
  • BMW Group

we will work on the further development and industrialization of beam shaping technologies for the laser-based powder bed fusion processing of metals (PBF-LB/M). The aim is to leverage higher production rates and lower costs per part (€/ccm) through PBF-LB/M-processes within the automotive industry!

Thank you Project Management Juelich (wird in neuem Tab geöffnet) and Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (wird in neuem Tab geöffnet) for seeing the great benefit of the project and the funding of our activities.
