The first additive manufacturing of a critical accelerator component paves the way toward more affordable and versatile particle accelerators.
As many as four oral presentations stemming from I.FAST innovative activities were given at this prestigious particle accelerator conference
World first: Fraunhofer IWS for the very first time prints quadrupole components for linear accelerators
Additive manufacturing is at the heart of industry 4.0. Recognising its potential, the I.FAST project, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 program, has the objective of promoting it within the advanced accelerator technologies.
