Module description - Additive Manufacturing (polymers)

ECTS 3.0
Level intermediate
Overview The students know different additive process for polymer parts starting from different semi-finished products (powder, filament granulate), different processes like FDM, FFF, SLS, SLM, Polyjet, DLP, SLT…
They understand the dependency between component design and manufacturing possibilities of additive manufactured parts. They are able to design parts by applying the fundamentals of polymers to derive the significant process parameters and to apply them to specific applications.
Introduction of different processes
Fundamentals of polymer processing (material behavior during process, characterization methods, mechanical performance)
Application of selected AM methods
Cost assessment for AM parts
Advanced AM methods for future applications
Learning objectives The students know the procedure to design and process additive manufac-tured parts. They are able to assess and compare the applicability of the individual manufacturing processes for a specific component from a tech-nical and economic point of view.
