Research in zero gravity: The team of Prof. Dr. Jens Günster, head of the Ceramic Processing and Biomaterials division and high-performance ceramics professor at the Clausthal University of Technology will show vistors how additive manufacturing under microgravity conditions works. The goal of the experiments is to show that astronauts could make their own tools or spare parts during their space mission using 3D printing technology.The Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity project aims to produce components by applying layers of a flowable powder using 3D printing in zero gravity. The challenge lies in stabilising the powder bed without gravity. The researchers have therefore developed an innovative method that enables powders to be processed under a protective gas atmosphere.
