Passion for research projects

Due to the strict building code requirements, the construction industry is "always very sluggish towards innovations," explains office owner Dr. Siebert. Unconventional ideas and projects have to be approved separately, for example, through consent in individual cases (ZiE). This discourages many entrepreneurs from implementing their ideas. To lower these hurdles, the engineering firm advocates an…

AI in additive manufacturing

You can't assume that everyone can analyze a 2 kHz signal, but if you have such a signal, you can feed it into the tool we developed and see if everything worked as it should, explains Dr. Claus Lenz, one of the founders of Cognition Factory, using a specific example. This principle also applies to…

3D-planning for complex glass components

The current processes for manufacturing glass components work well for standardized products, but individual production within the framework of these processes cannot be realized, or only with a great deal of effort. Therefore, Mr. Hölscher hopes to be able to print "especially complex piece-shaped or piece-related geometries." "Furthermore, if the technology would allow it, large-area…

Passion for research projects

Ingenieurbüro Dr. Siebert is based in Munich and has been providing consulting and planning services in the field of structural analysis of load-bearing structures made of glass, steel, concrete and wood for more than 20 years. The office first came into contact with additive manufacturing through two projects. One involved an art project - a…

Monitoring additive processes

"Printing with steel is very interesting and even more interesting is the data generated in such a process," says Dr. Claus Lenz, co-founder of Cognition Factory. Wire-arc additive manufacturing generates countless numbers of such data. "To correlate the high-frequency process parameters with image data of individual printed layers, to process the data efficiently, to detect…

BE-AM Exhibition @ Formnext 2021

Have you ever wondered why scientists explore 3D printing for the architecture and construction? Join BE-AM network manager Dr. Philipp Rosendahl for a tour through the exhibits of the BE-AM exhibition at this year's Formnext 2021, Nov 16-19, Frankfurt/Main. https://youtu.be/Hc6BNQCK1Bk

BE-AM | Labs @ TU Darmstadt: The ISM+D Brick lab

The ISMD Brick Lab is realizing research projects in the 3d-clay printing of real scale free-form bricks for the use in building environments. Focus is currently the printing technology, the extrusion process and the final processing. Further development of 3d clay printing technique will focus on dimension, precision, speed and usable materials. Key equipment: ABB…
