Smallest structures, complex parts or individual implants – due to its flexibility additive manufacturing has a high potential for use in modern production technology. Therefore, this topic is perfectly suited for the ”Innovation Day Laser Technology – Laser Additive Manufacturing” that is organized by NiedersachsenMetall and the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) to transfer the latest research and development results to industrial application. On November 09th, 2016, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are invited to come to the LZH to inform themselves about laser-based additive manufacturing.
Laser technology can complement or even replace conventional processes. There is a wide range of application fields, especially for laser additive processes. This technology makes it possible to create complex geometries that cannot be manufactured with conventional production techniques, and to produce individualized parts economically even with small batch sizes.
Experts from industry and research explain the current state-of-the-art, report on the latest trends and point out relevant market developments - besides presenting application opportunities for the SMEs.
From nano to macro: laser additive manufacturing of metals and plastics
Laser additive manufacturing, however, is not only versatile in terms of application opportunities: The manufacturing scale ranges from nano to macro. And the bandwidth of materials includes both metals, such as construction steel and magnesium, but also polymers. Several live demonstrations will show how these laser-based processes work in practice.
Open dialogue between industry and research
Being an industry-oriented research institution, the LZH supports companies in implementing and optimizing laser-based processes. Not only at the Innovation Day the LZH experts are available to answer the questions of industrial users.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
