T. Vaneker is part of the department of Design, Production and Management. For this department he is in charge of the advanced manufacturing topic, of which the AM research is part of. He teaches among others the Engineering technology master course on 3D printing. Research interest are focuses on the development of AM processes and DfAM.
Gert-willem Römer is with the department Mechanics of Solids, Surfaces & Systems (MS3). He is chair holder of the Chair of Laser Processing. Part of the research aims at Laser-induced Forward Transfer (LIFT), which is a micrometric Additive Manufacturing technology using (ultra) short pulsed laser sources. Another Additive Manufacturing technology under development is Laser-Based Metal Deposition, usually known as 3D laser cladding. Additive Manufacturing is part of the Master course “Laser material processing”, taught by Gert-willem Römer. He co-teaches Laser-based Additive Manufacturing to other courses on Additive Manufacturing.
Ton Bor is with the department Mechanics of Solids, Surfaces & Systems (MS3). He is a member of the Production Technology chair headed by Prof. Remko Akkerman.
The research is focused on the development of new additive manufacturing approaches enabling the use of a wider range of materials and opening up new application areas. The main focus is on solid state deposition of lightweight aluminium and magnesium alloys. The work is performed in narrow co-operation with the Non-linear Solid Mechanics chair and the Surface Technology and Tribology chair within MS3. Recently, also the development of suitable approaches towards additive manufacturing of elastomers is started in co-operation with the MS3 chair of Elastomer Technology and Engineering.
Materials Science related aspects of additive manufacturing are part of the Master course on “Moulding Technology”.
