Manufacturing of Lattices
Applications of metallic microlattices
- lightweight structural concepts that can absorb acoustic, shock and vibration energy
- sandwich construction of aircraft fuselages and wing structures (efficient function/weight-efficiency ratio ). In general, sandwich core topologies are exhibiting stretching and compression qualities without bending .
- protection system for flight recorders: a microlattice layer protects the memory device against crash 
- Impact and blast resistant structures
- biocompatible porous structures
