On June 1, Fraunhofer ILT and Aachen University of Applied Sciences opened the world´s largest SLM-plant at the Aachen Center for 3D Printing.
Concept Laser’s new XLine 2000R selective laser melting system opens up new possibilities for the Scientists in Research and Development of Prototypes.
Among the many manufacturing processes in the technology field Laser Materials Processing, cutting and joining in micro and macro technology as well as surface processes count among its most important.
Together with partners from the Life Sciences, the technology field Medical Technology and Biophotonics opens up new areas of applications for lasers in therapy and diagnostics as well as in microscopy and analytics.
The focus of the technology field Laser Measurement Technology and EUV Technology lies in manufacturing measurement technology, materials analysis, identification and analysis technology in the areas of recycling and raw materials, measurement and test engineering for environment and security, as well as the use of EUV technology.
In collaboration with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) experts are presenting latest developments and state of the art applications in laser processing of composite materials.
The 3D Valley Conference from September 27-28, 2017 focuses on industrial applications, shows new developments in processes, integrated process chains and innovative business models in the field of additive manufacturing.
“Laser in Composites Symposium” in Aachen – from Science to Application
Lightweight components made of fiber-reinforced plastics are becoming more and more important for a wide variety of industries, especially in automotive engineering and aviation. Accordingly, the need for efficient manufacturing and processing methods for these composites is increasing. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT invites interested parties to the first “Laser in Composites Symposium” in Aachen on November 22, 2017 in collaboration with the experts of the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL). Here, experts will inform industrial users in lectures and guided tours about the latest developments and state-of-the-art applications in laser material processing of fiber-reinforced plastics. The symposium will also provide a forum for a mutual exchange between research and industry.
