ACAM Joint R&D

The ACAM members have the benefit of participating in joint R&D projects, which allows them to utilize the AM resources available at the RWTH Aachen Campus directly and efficiently for their own purpose.

  • The ACAM industrial members jointly define the research topics on an annual basis.
  • Leveraging the unique resources on the RWTH Aachen Campus, the defined projects are then conducted by our R&D partners.
  • The project findings are made available for the respective consortial partners.
  • All ACAM industrial members receive a comprehensive report for each project.
