About

EPFL is a technical university open to Switzerland and the world and centered on its three missions: teaching, research and technology transfer. EPFL works together with an extensive network of partners including other universities and institutes of technology, industry and economy, political circles and the general public, to bring about real impact for society.

At EPFL a special focus is on additive processes of metallic parts by Selective Laser Melting.
We have more then twenty years of expertise in the domain of process development in particular in
(a) optimization of the powder deposition system
(b) powder layer inspection by eddy current measurement
(c) optimization of process parameters (scan path, laser power and beam profile)
(d) process control and part certification by on line monitoring of the infra-red back reflection
(e) process simulation
(f) base material certification by in situ measurement of the electro-magnetic and thermal properties
(g) development of new material (precious metals, specific alloys, matl-ceramic composites)
(h) development of new applications (tooling (conformal cooling) , micro-mechanics, ...)
