A TÜBİTAK 1001 project proposal by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sezer Özerinç titled "Development of High Strength Metallic Lattice Structures by Combining Additive Manufacturing and Electroplating" got accepted for funding by The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey. We congratulate Dr. Özerinç and wish him success in running the project.
In this project, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sezer Özerinç and Prof. Dr. İshak Karakaya (METU Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department), we will develop a new, cost-effective and scalable approach to the manufacturing of strong and lightweight metallic lattice parts. These polymer-metal lattice composites will not require the costly operation of a metal printer and will provide unparalleled control over the manufacturing quality and mechanical performance.
