Laser experts from Germany and Israel are testing a laser for industrial use at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS. The laser is part of the Saxon-Israeli research project ShapeAM, which began in July 2021, part of the European network program M-era.Net.
Fraunhofer is currently investigating the beam shaping, which is accelerated by 1000×, for the first time for additive manufacturing, alongside project collaborators Civan Lasers and A. Kotliar Laser Welding Systems.
The international team of researchers will investigate welding applications, including how to use the new laser system to achieve advantages in terms of processing speed and quality for comparable components such as the one pictured….
