We focus on five social themes.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
On our TNOTIME platform you can find blogs, interviews and background stories. Discover the field of TNO captured in photographs, animations, video and text. Share interesting articles and powerful infographics, or download whitepapers.
The department Equipment for Additive Manufacturing (EfAM) develops cutting-edge technology and high-precision machine concepts for 3D printing and layer-wise material deposition. These technologies are seen as a holy grail for many applications, like large-area and printed electronics, integrated products, mechatronics, pharmaceutics, personalized and high-nutrition food.
EfAM has more than 10 year experience with developing additive manufacturing technologies, like jetting and printing of high-viscous materials, patterning of photo-sensitive materials, stereo lithography technology, 3D printing, printing of metal structures, laser printing and structuring, thin film deposition and patterning, food printing and encapsulation printing. We have a track record of successful technology transfers to our business partners. Based on a broad technology basis, we define the functional and customer requirement specifications, translate these into innovative concepts, develop together with academic and industrial partners machine prototypes and transfer the developed technologies to our industrial partners. The core disciplines of the EfAM research group comprises control engineering, mechanical engineering, system engineering, mechatronics, print engineering, thermo-fluid engineering, process development, and project management.
Within the department Equipment for Additive Manufacturing, we develop cutting-edge technology and high-precision machine concepts for 3D printing and layer-wise material deposition:
