Technology Briefing 2021: Advanced Manufacturing at Empa

9. November, 13:30 17:00 , Empa, Thun / online


During the last couple of years, new manufacturing technologies such as additive manufacturing, micro- and nanofabrication or laser materials processing have significantly evolved significantly. Because of a sophisticated linkage between computers, data and manufacturing tools, we are seeing radical changes in how things are made. These developments are critical to the Swiss industry. Advanced Manufacturing is an important research focus at Empa and new research infrastructure has been installed particularly at Empa Thun over the last two years. The goal of this Technology Briefing is to provide an overview of the recent developments and current activities at Empa Thun in the areas metal Additive Manufacturing, in situ process monitoring, micronscale manufacturing, advanced materials characterization, and multiscale modeling and simulation.
