Hybrid laser-based additive – subtractive research platform. (HyLaForm)

Our state-of-the-art hybrid laser-based additive-and-subtractive research platform consists of two complementary modular research machines. In the omain of Hybrid Metal Additive Manufacturing, this infrastructure is the largest investment in Flanders to enable research on lower Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs). The infrastructure has functions that are unique in Europe. It offers a scope in which to consolidate and strengthen the ongoing collaboration between
the AM research teams at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and KU Leuven. The platform is supported by numerous other forms of equipment and scientific
research infrastructure, including software, mechanical test facilities, monitoring equipment, metrology tools, material and powder characterization equipment, etc.
