Damascene conversion: composite material with metal layers of varying hardness.
Damascene conversion: composite material with metal layers of varying hardness can be produced through clever temperature variation. Damascus steel is often used for its typical decorative pattern. The composite material produced from the 3D printer by the Max Planck and Fraunhofer researchers also clearly shows the alternating hard and ductile layers. The technology with which they are produced creates new possibilities for influencing material properties during additive manufacturing. © Frank Vinken.
