The lighthouse project Go Beyond 4.0 pursues the objective to provide new technologies for the mass production of individualized products. Specifically, this means the integration of digital printing and laser technologies into industry 4.0 production environments which are currently installed.
To meet these objectives, excellent expertises of six leading Fraunhofer Institutes are teamed up. The team consists of Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS in Chemnitz (project leader), Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM in Bremen, Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF in Jena, Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC in Würzburg, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU in Dresden and Chemnitz, tapping on additional competences of several Fraunhofer Groups: Microelectronics, Production, MATERIALS and Light & Surfaces.
Funded by the European Union, the ultraSURFACE project focuses on optimizing optical systems with dynamic 3D applicability and on developing strategies for laser-based production processes with high-throughput. In the project, Scientists and industry partners are developing two new optical designs which allow users to adapt laser beam manipulation individually and to increase throughput by a factor of ten compared to conventional processes. The video shows first application tests for laser structuring with the developed MultiBeam optics, which were integrated into a machine tool at Unitechnologies.
