Beyond Surfaces #4 - Materials Engineering

In the latest edition of BEYOND SURFACES, we turn our attention to the topic of materials. Find out why many of the conveniences we take for granted today were originally only made possible thanks to innovations in the materials sector. Read all about the role materials play in additive manufacturing and why expertise in the development of modern materials is often the key to success.

Why do so many experts find materials particularly fascinating? Dive into the world of materials science and discover the role advanced materials and 3D printing are playing in the development of the perfect city bike – and how the same technologies help one group of students realize their dream of constructing a rocket that sets a new altitude record. Not forgetting the world’s largest gas turbine testing site, which relies on the technologies and expertise Oerlikon provides in the materials sector.
