Introduction of the CRC 814:

The Collaborative Research Center 814 – Additive Manufacturing deals with the basic research of additive manufacturing processes.

In the future, components should be produced from plastics or metal-based materials without specific tooling. Away from rapid prototyping to manufacturing, these technologies are empowered by the CRC 814 to fabricate serial components in the desired quality.

Since 2011, more than 35 scientists are working on this major interdisciplinary project at the FAU. The third funding period started in July 2019.

We want to give an overview of our goals, the structure, and the people involved and hope to inspire you for the exciting, visionary production technologies shown on our website.




Together with the CRC 1120 - Precision Melt Engineering in Aachen and the Centre for Computational Engineering (CCE) in Darmstadt, we are pleased to announce the 2nd International Joint Conference EMPOrIA 2023 in Aachen. The Conference will be held from May 16-17, 2023, in Aachen.
