Using ultrashort pulsed laser radiation to structure fiber-reinforced components and remove their coatings

Press Release / 18.7.2016

Composite materials made of glass or carbon fibers are characterized by their low specific weight and outstanding mechanical characteristics. Fiber-reinforced components are already being successfully processed today in industrial mass production. Although the material does have limitations regarding the manufacturing processes that can be used, these can be overcome through the clever use of laser processes.
