As one of the first users in applied research and development worldwide, Fraunhofer IFAM Dresden has installed a system for Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing (LMM), adding an innovative approach to its extensive expertise in the field of additive manufacturing.
The institute will continue to develop the process in a strategic partnership with the manufacturer of the system Incus.
LMM is characterized by very filigree structures. The outstanding surface quality of the process opens up new areas of application that were previously impossible with other additive technologies. These range from aesthetic applications such as jewelry to microfluidics and electronic components.
