Additive Manufacturing enables the production of metal parts in almost any geometry. The focus of the Technology Transfer Center VerTec at the Joint Institute of Advanced Materials and Processes at University of Erlangen-Nuremberg is on Additive Manufacturing using selective electron beam melting. In this way tailor-made components are developed e.g. for use in medical, energy or process engineering.
Additionally, coating with catalytic active materials opens up new applications in the field of structured reactors. Computer-aided reactor design allows for the optimization of fluid dynamics and heat transport. Thus, reactors with superior performance are manufactured. The Technology Transfer Center VerTec offers a development platform for cooperation partners from industry and academia.
