Hannover Messe 2019: BAM conducts research on 3D-printed concrete components

01.04.2019

The Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) will present their research on additive manufacturing methods for complex concrete components at the Hannover Messe 2019. These methods could be used to produce tailor-made components for sewage systems quickly and economically in the future. Prototypes of various 3D printed components will be on display for those attending the trade fair.

Traditionally, concrete component manufacturing is arduous and design possibilities are limited by the formwork. Should infrastructural elements require replacement due to damage, this repair work is often costly.


BAM is conducting research on new materials and processes for 3D printing in the construction industry.

Additive manufacturing opens up new possibilities to manufacture customised products or even small batches of concrete components in an efficient manner. This is where BAM’s research steps in.

Together with Clausthal University of Technology, BAM is working on laser-based additive manufacturing of alkali-activated concrete. Not only does this have a higher chemical resistance, but in combination with 3D printing technology, it could also provide unique possibilities for industrial applications.

“Additive manufacturing is already being utilised for plastics and metals with great success,” explains Professor Jens Günster, project leader and head of the Ceramic Processing and Biomaterials division at BAM. “We want to further develop the manufacturing process so that it can also be safely applied in the construction materials sector.”

BAM is also involved in the AMITIE EU project (Additive Manufacturing Initiative for Transnational Innovation in Europe). Within the scope of AMITIE, BAM scientists are cooperating with Desamanera, an Italian start-up. Together, they want to optimise 3D printing for very large, complex concrete and mortar components.

About BAM
BAM promotes safety in technology and chemistry.
As a departmental research institute of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, BAM performs research, testing and offers advisory support to protect people, the environment and material goods. Its activity in the fields of materials science, materials engineering and chemistry is focussed on the technical safety of products and processes.

BAM’s research is directed towards substances, materials, building elements, components and facilities as well as natural and technical systems important for the national economy and relevant to society. It also tests and assesses their safe handling and operation. BAM develops and validates analysis procedures and assessment methods, models and necessary standards and provides science-based services for the German industry in a European and international framework.

Safety creates markets.
BAM sets and represents high standards for safety in technology and chemistry for Germany and its global markets to further develop the successful German quality culture "Made in Germany“.
