3D printing of metals: Article by Kassel researchers among the Scientific Reports TOP 100

In January 2018, the renowned journal Scientific Reports (Nature publishing group) published an article from the group of Professor Dr.-Ing. Thomas Niendorf, which reported on the development of new steels for 3D printing, so-called additive manufacturing. Now the journal has published figures on the most-read articles in various scientific disciplines: The article by the Kassel researchers has been named one of the 100 most-read articles in the materials science section.

"The feedback on the paper was all very positive and shows that we have set our research priorities in additive manufacturing correctly. With our focus on the safety and reliability of 3D-printed structures, we have now built up a high international reputation. The University of Kassel thus has worldwide visibility in the field. The high perception of our article naturally spurs us to continue to be present in the literature with new ideas and new materials." Niendorf and colleagues at TU Freiberg are actively developing new project ideas and material approaches.
