The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in Dresden has commissioned a new facility to strengthen its competence as a partner for additive manufacturing. The Fusion Factory of XERION BERLIN LABORATORIES is a compact production line for additive manufacturing of metallic and ceramic components. It was developed by XERION with scientific support from Fraunhofer IFAM Dresden and brought to market maturity.
The aim of the innovative project is the development of the new ceramic tube furnace as a combined debinder and sintering furnace with an innovative binder separator in the form of a cooling finger for the targeted removal of the released binder as well as the development of the EcoMelt furnace prototype
The XERION CEO, Dr. Ing. Uwe Lohse visited several research institutions in Singapore. The discussions focused on the further development of the Fusion Factory and possible research collaborations in this field.
