Laser Technology for the Production of the Future – LZH at the Hannover Messe 2015

24.03.2015

Efficient – individual – lightweight – smart: The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will present innovative approaches for the production of the future at the Hannover Messe from April 13th to 17th, 2015. Under the motto of “Laser Technology for the Production of the Future” the LZH will be exhibiting – for the second time – at the Lower Saxony Pavilion in hall 2, stand A08.

Based on current research projects, the LZH is presenting how laser technology makes processes more efficient, and how it can be used for individualized manufacturing, for making lightweight construction suitable for mass production and for smart components.

Efficient processes

Reinforcement and repair of components subject to high stress must be fast and cost-efficient: This can be done in a single step using a laser stabilized deposition welding process developed at the LZH. The process is at least two to three times faster than conventional gas metal arc processes (GMAW).

Gluing instead of soldering? With a further innovative process, diamond cutting segments on saw blades can easily be replaced. Laser radiation can be used to dissolve the glue, clean the saw blade from residues, and then to harden epoxy resins, with competitive bonding strengths.

Individual components

Laser additive manufacturing is breaking the limits of conventional production technologies: The LZH is showing how individual implants, replacement parts, and lightweight construction parts can be manufactured out of magnesium. These structures can even withstand high loads.

Automated lightweight construction

Laser technology can be used to processfiber composite materials automatically and contact-free. The LZH is working on processes for cutting, drilling, material removal and joining, in order to make lightweight construction in the automotive and aeronautical industries suitable for mass production. At the Hannover Messe, the LZH will show samples which demonstrate the state of the art of this technology.

Smart devices

Components, which „feel“ strain, deformation and vibrations? Laser structuring can be used to place sensors directly onto components. The sensors hardly take up any space, and measurements are more exact.

Im Focus: Solving the mystery of quantum light in thin layers

A very special kind of light is emitted by tungsten diselenide layers. The reason for this has been unclear. Now an explanation has been found at TU Wien (Vienna)

It is an exotic phenomenon that nobody was able to explain for years: when energy is supplied to a thin layer of the material tungsten diselenide, it begins to...

Im Focus: An ultrafast glimpse of the photochemistry of the atmosphere

Researchers at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have explored the initial consequences of the interaction of light with molecules on the surface of nanoscopic aerosols.

The nanocosmos is constantly in motion. All natural processes are ultimately determined by the interplay between radiation and matter. Light strikes particles...

Im Focus: Shaping nanoparticles for improved quantum information technology

Particles that are mere nanometers in size are at the forefront of scientific research today. They come in many different shapes: rods, spheres, cubes, vesicles, S-shaped worms and even donut-like rings. What makes them worthy of scientific study is that, being so tiny, they exhibit quantum mechanical properties not possible with larger objects.

Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility located at DOE's Argonne National...

Im Focus: Novel Material for Shipbuilding

A new research project at the TH Mittelhessen focusses on the development of a novel light weight design concept for leisure boats and yachts. Professor Stephan Marzi from the THM Institute of Mechanics and Materials collaborates with Krake Catamarane, which is a shipyard located in Apolda, Thuringia.

The project is set up in an international cooperation with Professor Anders Biel from Karlstad University in Sweden and the Swedish company Lamera from...

Im Focus: Controlling superconducting regions within an exotic metal

Superconductivity has fascinated scientists for many years since it offers the potential to revolutionize current technologies. Materials only become superconductors - meaning that electrons can travel in them with no resistance - at very low temperatures. These days, this unique zero resistance superconductivity is commonly found in a number of technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Future technologies, however, will harness the total synchrony of electronic behavior in superconductors - a property called the phase. There is currently a...
