additive manufacturing laboratory / VTT
Additive Manufacturing Laboratory provides research, development and testing environment for additive manufacturing processes, products and materials. Focus is in metallic powder bed fusion (selective laser melting) process. Whole process loop (powder pre-processing - AM-process - post-treatments - testing) can be carried out. Lab includes also two Direct Write equipment (Direct Write Paste and Direct Write Thermal Spray) and some additional intro level 3D printers. In cooperation with Aalto University lab can offer almost all AM-technology classes.
