For the first time at APS Meetings, Fraunhofer IAPT welcomes you at their Immersive Workshop on Biomimetics

 

  

The Fraunhofer Research Institution for Additive Manufacturing Technologies IAPT is part of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaf Institute, which is one of the largest application-oriented research organizations with more than 25,000 employees in Europe. The Fraunhofer IAPT is one of the world's leading institutions for scientific-industrial technology transfer in the field of 3D printing. The focus is on the application of additive technologies in the key areas of aerospace, ship and rail, machinery and tooling, as well as polymers and medical technology for series production in the sense of rapid and bionic manufacturing.

 

  What is Biomimetics ? 

It involves getting inspired by the solutions invented by nature, in order to solve a specific industrial challenge.
Many bio-inspired innovations are aimed at improving existing products or industrializing new products and processes through 3D PRINTING.

 Workshop 

Additive Manufacturing makes it possible to produce shapes that are inspired by nature. In this workshop, Fraunhofer IAPT will teach you how to reduce weight, reduce cost and increase the performance of parts by applying the structural principles of nature.
 
 

 Practical exercise

In a practical exercise, you will be led to solve a design engineering problem by applying biomimetic methods!

 Who can join ? 

The workshop is free of charge and addressed to:
  • Desing engineers
  • Contractors & Decision Makers
  • Creative minds
  • Business drivers


  

Presented by Jochen Loock

Position : Head of Additive Academy at Fraunhofer IAPT. Since 2016 Jochen Loock is working on the Additive Academy where he has trained more than 1.000 participants from leading companies in Additive Manufacturing.
