Chair of Additive Manufacturing

Welcome to the website of the Chair of Additive Manufacturing at the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg.

At our professorship, we research, develop and teach the entire process chain of manufacturing technology, with the focus on topics of additive manufacturing, also called " 3D printing", machining with geometrically defined cutting edge and surface finishing by plasma electrolytic polishing.

I am looking forward to your requests and remain tratitionally with a "Glück auf "!

Research project HYMOON - "Printing New Worlds"

METROM PM-1000 - Entladung vom LKWThe "HYMOON" project, which is funded by the Agent3D consortium and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, has extended the theoretical part of the project by the practical part - on 03.06.2020 the first part of the demonstrator was set up in the TMV hall of the Bergakademie Freiberg. Full of expectation, the union of this PM 1000 from METROM and the 3DMP attachment from GEFERTEC is still to come.

Can I study a key technology? You bet!

Bachelor-Studiengang Additive FertigungThe bachelor course Additive Manufacturing - Technology, Material, Design of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg, which by the way was the first of its kind in Germany, makes it possible. Interdisciplinary, close to practice, versatile and flexible. In addition to the typical Freiberg virtues - small groups, uncomplicated and direct contact with the professionals, excellent equipment - this is where one of the most important technology groups of the future comes into play. 3D printing? Then the right way!

Here we briefly present what this means: Studiengangspräsentation "Additive Fertigung - Technologie, Material, Design": and here you can find more information:

Courses for the summer semester 2020

Lehre im Sommersemester 2020Dear students, please note that despite the current conditions all courses of the Chair of Additive Manufacturing are held. There will be alternative formats as a replacement for the classroom lecture.

This is the only way to use the alternative teaching formats provided successfully. Please also understand that the registration periods are very limited due to the complicated organisation of the courses.

The following courses are available for registration:

  • Einführung in Konstruktion und CAD
  • Additive Fertigung
  • Technisches Darstellen
  • CAD für Maschinenbau

You can find all OPAL courses of the professorship here.

We are with the "This is us" !

Das sind wir.

Under the title "This is us" we portray university members from all over the world. Students and employees find at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg a place of scientific and social exchange, where we daily together fill the vision of a diverse international knowledge community with life.

"This is us" stands for a feeling of belonging, of togetherness and team spirit - regardless of origin, nationality, faith, gender or sexual orientation.
