In this long-term project and as a model project for project-based research and teaching, actors from the field of mechanical engineering are working on the development and continuous optimization of a test platform for sustainable large-format additive manufacturing. Research topics include the production of large-format components in small batches (e.g. prototype and mold construction, digital model/furniture construction, etc.), requirements/parameterization/performance of modern industrial controls, and the development and production of test setups and execution of test series and parameter studies for the use of alternative materials and material combinations. A special aspect is the topic of 3D printing and sustainability. This involves investigations into the integration of a recycling plant for the direct (re)processing of plastic waste and recyclates.
