Commercial and research partners including Fraunhofer ILT working to enhance laser powder bed fusion materials and processes.

German regional state government North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) is backing the AddSteel R&D project, which is intended to “digitalize” the steel industry. Coordinated by SMS Group, a plant engineering company based in Mönchengladbach, this project, due to be completed in 2021, is developing new function-adapted steel materials for additive manufacturing.

One of the project’s key aims is the qualification of new materials for laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) metallic 3D printing process, at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) in Aachen.

AddSteel this week published a mid-stage report describing one of the project notable achievements as “the development of the first case-hardening and heat-treatable steel powders designed specifically for LPBF applications.”
