Powder-Based Materials Development

Implants fulfilling several functions simultaneously are based on a complex combination of a specially developed material, innovative manufacturing methods and a detailed geometric design. To produce these multifunctional implants, the “Powder-Based Materials Development” department relies on modern metal powder-based methods. This facilitates the targeted development of alloys with tailored properties and the creation of sophisticated geometrical structures, both aiming at implants with customized characteristics. The work is carried out on a scientific basis and is supported through digital modeling and computer simulations. The focus of our work lies in magnesium implants, but the expertise also extends to titanium alloys for medical and technical applications. Our aim is to transfer the results to the clinical realm and the industrial sector.
