SFI PhysMet - Centre for Sustainable and Competitive Metallurgical and Manufacturing Industry
PhysMet is an interdisciplinary centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) in the field of physical metallurgy.
Our goal is to establish knowledge and technology to realise new innovative materials solutions in cost-efficient, low-carbon production chains in the metallurgical and manufacturing industry in Norway.
September 22, 2023 SFI Physmet and the EU project Smart-SWAAM have organized a two days international course on additive manufacturing (AM). Several international and national experts were invited to give lectures about different aspects of AM from fundamental solidification, equipment, powder production, processing, microstructures and properties to applications.
