Efficiency in Laser Production at the Fair EuroBLECH

02.10.2012
At this year’s EuroBLECH fair (October 23rd to 27th, 2012) in Hannover, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showing that laser technology can be used to achieve higher efficiency in production and manufacturing. Visitors to the LZH stand (Hall 11, Stand H 08) can discover how laser welding, laser cutting and laser surface treatment can make metal and sheet metal processing more efficient, more productive and less expensive.

Laser welding plays an important role not only in sheet metal processing, but also in the research work carried out at the LZH. Highlights at the fair EuroBLECH include laser welding of 23 mm thick metal sheets for ship building or pipeline construction, or how lasers can be used for welding a three meter long ship rudder made of steel-aluminum sandwich plates, cutting the weight of the rudder in half.


At the EuroBLECH fair, the LZH will be showing how laser welding can be used for weight reduction in shipbuilding (Hall 11, Stand H 08). The ship rudder in the photo is made of laser welded steel-aluminum sandwich plates (see cross-section).

Even if laser cutting has been well established for several years, there are always new challenges. The LZH will be showing that lasers can be used to economically cu many different materials (e.g. alloys and non-ferrous metals) and different material thicknesses.

Laser surface treatment is interesting for rapid prototyping, for generating small structures (laser sintering) with a resolution of only 30 µm. The LZH will also be showing how laser deposition welding and repair welding can help reduce costs, for example for repairing so-called blisks (a turbine or engine component consisting of a single element combining the rotor disk and the blades).

Further exhibits and information can be found on www.lzh.de, or make an appointment with one of our experts at the fair. We hope to see you at the EuroBLECH 2012, in Hall 11, Stand H 08.

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
