Project Outline: Additive manufacturing of antennas by processing of high frequency plastics (AddiHF)

The Research Association 3-D MID e.V. is still looking for companies to accompany the project. If you are interested, please contact the office via phone (+49 911 5302-9100) or E-Mail. E-Mail to office

Research Objective

The aim of the project is to investigate suitable combinations of plastics and AF manufacturing processes of RF components. The focus is therefore on the one hand on the combination of materials and processes for the characterization of the basic material-process-property relationship in correlation with the electrical characterization for the application in the form of antennas up to 100 GHz. This enables the production of RF components made of plastics with field-filled areas, which can be miniaturized and designed with a high degree of freedom and thus find a wide range of applications, e.g. in the aerospace and telecommunications industries or in radar sensor technology.

Benefits and Economic Importance for SMEs

  • New field of application for existing production plants
  • New field of application for material manufacturers and processors in the AF
  • AF and HF suitable plastics
  • Users in the HF range
