  • In collaboration with industrial partners, we at the Fraunhofer WKI have succeeded in developing UV-curing materials with improved properties for additive manufacturing. The UV-curing component is based on renewable raw materials. The materials can be processed in commercially available techniques such as stereolithography (SLA), digital light processing (DLP) and multi-jet modeling (MJM). In the webinar, we present the research results in detail and discuss possible applications, for example in the automotive sector.

    In the new "Center for Lightweight and Environmentally Friendly Buildings ZELUBA®" researchers of the Fraunhofer WKI will develop sustainable lightweight construction solutions for the building industry there - in a future-oriented building. In line with the research at the ZELUBA®, the focus of the planning was on the use of renewable raw materials in combination with conventional materials. On the “Day of Architecture”, the team of architects will offer guided tours of the ZELUBA®.

    Day of Lower Saxony

    With the “Day of Lower Saxony”, the state celebrates its culture, history and cultural diversity every two years. This time with a special anniversary: Lower Saxony is 75 years old. The festival is also a showcase for the state's innovative strength. Companies and research centers from Lower Saxony present technical developments for the public to marvel at. The Fraunhofer WKI uses specific application examples to show how modern high-performance materials can be made from wood and other renewable raw materials.
