HYPERMETAL – Metal Additive Manufacturing

Mechanical and Fatigue Characterization

Joana Melo is a senior student of the Master in Mechanical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto and is conducting her thesis at Hypermetal.

Her work focuses on the characterization of the mechanical properties of metal parts produced by Laser Powder Bed Fusion, and more specifically on the study of their fatigue behavior.

In addition to strengthening the cooperative relationship between Hypermetal and FEUP, we are pleased to contribute to Joana’s training with practical experience in this emerging technology, as well as to benefit from the know-how brought about by her work.

Any questions that you may have related to the theme we invite you to contact us and we’ll be happy to help!
