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.
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.

A genetic defect protects mice from infection with influenza viruses
A new study published in the scientific journal PLOS Pathogens points out that mice lacking a protein called Tmprss2 are no longer affected by certain flu viruses.
The discovery was made by researchers from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Braunschweig in collaboration with colleagues from Göttingen and ...
The Light: Global study gets underway with online user survey
Light has a fundamental impact on our sense of well-being and performance. In cooperation with Zumtobel, a supplier of lighting solutions, Fraunhofer IAO has launched a global user survey of lighting quality in offices. The objective is to identify the best lighting conditions for a variety of spaces and lighting ...
Quantum entanglement, a perplexing phenomenon of quantum mechanics that Albert Einstein once referred to as “spooky action at a distance,” could be even spookier than Einstein perceived.
Physicists at the University of Washington and Stony Brook University in New York believe the phenomenon might be intrinsically linked with wormholes, hypothetical features of space-time that in popular science fiction can provide a much-faster-than-light shortcut from one part of the universe to another.
But here’s the catch: One couldn’t actually ...
A star is formed when a large cloud of gas and dust condenses and eventually becomes so dense that it collapses into a ball of gas, where the pressure heats the matter, creating a glowing gas ball – a star is born.
New research from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, shows that a young, newly formed star in the Milky Way had such an explosive growth, that it was initially about 100 times brighter than it is now. The results are published in the scientific journal, Astrophysical Journal Letters.
The young ...
