Welcome to the Joint Institute of Advanced Materials and Processes
The research of the Joint Institute of Advanced Materials and Processes (Zentralinstitut für neue Materialien und Prozesstechnik, ZMP) of the University Erlangen-Nuremberg is focused on interdisciplinary topics being located inbetween Material Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry and Physics. In a young an highly innovative environment, new material concepts and the corresponding production techniques concerning lightweight constructional components are developed. The advancement of ideas being formed in fundamental research to the state of prototyping forms the basic goal.
The considered range of materials includes light metals, high temperature alloys, ceramics and carbon. Typical process routes include different additive manufacturing processes, rapid prototyping technologies or powder injection molding. Additionally, effective joining methods are probed.
