MultiBeam - Multimaterial processing via additive manufacturing

The complex market conditions in the high-technology sector require a constant performance increase and better efficiency at the same time.

A product improvement can be realized through the intelligent use of customized high efficiency materials or constructive steps.

The component parts have to meet locally differing requirements regarding to resistance, density, thermal operational capability, oxidation and wear behavior. This requires partially very different materials in one component.

With conventional production processes multi-material components can only be made through attachment of different single components. This results in high production costs, high system weight and short life.

The production of a huge amount of applications is not possible with conventional production processes, because the integrative component requires a multi-material use.
