The development of an additive component
often begins long before the design phase, when specific materials, manufacturing
processes, or post-processing techniques need to be developed.
As part of an ADM-D project, FIT's AM specialists
conduct qualified studies and tests to develop
reliable manufacturing processes for the
production of components with new materials,
or to create new processes that will pay off
economically in the end.
Definition of the framework - Together we define the goal of the study, its requirements and contents, as well as the general conditions (deadlines, costs, etc.).
Result: Contract regarding the study
Preparation for implementation - We develop the specific study content, the time schedule, and milestone plan and determine the project team.
Result: Project plan
Implementation of the study - We carry out the study and produce sample parts in the process, if required.
Result: Presentation of the conclusions
Testing/verifying the conclusions - We verify the results and develop the implementation concept on their basis.
Result: Presentation of test results on the basis of real manufactured sample parts
Final presentation - We summarize the results of the study in a final report and present the findings to you.
Results: Report on the study
Dipl.-Ing. Alexander Bonke graduated from TUM (Technische Universität München) in Mechanical Engineering and has been addicted to additive manufacturing since his beginnings at FIT Production in 2004. Due to his long-term experience, Alexander is an expert in ADM which describes any interaction between additive design and 3D printing. His current main focus is laid upon our ADM-D solutions.
