Leibniz-Institut für Werkstofforientierte Technologien - IWT Bremen

Welcome to Leibniz-IWT.

Research on material-oriented future technologies.

*****UPDATE CORONA VIRUS*****
 
Due to the current risk assessment with regard to the corona virus, presence at the Leibniz-IWT is still limited. Some of your contact partners are already working on site again, others continue to work from home. All employees can be reached electronically, preferably by e-mail. The telephone switchboards of Leibniz-IWT (0421/218-51400) and MPA (0421/53708-0) are also manned and will be happy to help you with general enquiries.

 

Since 1950, research has been conducted at Leibniz-IWT in Bremen on highly stressed metallic structural materials.

At Leibniz-IWT, material engineering, process engineering and production engineering competences are combined in one institute.

This interdisciplinary cooperation enables the scientists to map and research overarching issues of high practical relevance of highly stressed components along the entire process chain.

Additive Manufacturing

The cross-process chain consideration of the production of highly stressed metallic components has been an important element of the research strategy of Leibniz-IWT for many years. Thanks to the interdisciplinary competences at Leibniz-IWT, the entire process chain for additive manufacturing, from alloy development and powder production to quality-assured high-strength components, can be represented.
