Hi Ismail

Here's my summary.

University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW): Within the School of Life Sciences (HLS), the Institute for Medical an Analytical Technologies (IMA) is doing research on Additive Manufacturing technologies in terms of medical implants. Lots of projects are dealing with layer processed biomaterials such as metals, ceramics and plastics. The focus there is on validation of medical AM processes, material sciences, porous structures and the virtual planning of patient specific implants. Contact: Ralf Schumacher, ralf.schumacher@fhnw.ch

Betreff: [rp-ml] College and University Education and Research @ Wohlers Report 2011


I am working with Terry Wohlers of Wohlers Associates to include an important section in Wohlers Report 2011, a worldwide study on the developments and trends in additive manufacturing (AM). The section, titled College and University Education and Research, provides a summary of activities from institutions around the world. I am seeking input from educational and research institutions that are involved with AM.

Please submit a brief (50-75 word) summary that describes your primary research and/or educational focus and any noteworthy or recent advancements, announcements, or breakthroughs at your institution. The comments should be related to AM. The following is an example summary from Wohlers Report 2010.

University of Nottingham, UK: Within the Faculty of Engineering's Manufacturing Research Division, the Laser Processing Group has a number of projects in the area of laser-based additive manufacturing including process control development and materials qualification. In the Manufacturing Research Division, the Precision Manufacturing Center's research in additive manufacturing is focused on the micro and nanoscale for microsystems and novel biomedical structures. Contact: Joel Segal, joel.segal@nottingham.ac.uk

Would you please provide the summary by February 20, 2011 (the latest) I would appreciate it very much. Let me know if anything is unclear.
