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: Fraunhofer IDMT demonstrates its method for acoustic quality inspection at »Sensor+Test 2019« in Nürnberg

From June 25th to 27th 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau (Germany) will be presenting a new solution for acoustic quality inspection allowing contact-free, non-destructive testing of manufactured parts and components. The method which has reached Technology Readiness Level 6 already, is currently being successfully tested in practical use together with a number of industrial partners.

Im Focus: Successfully Tested in Praxis: Bidirectional Sensor Technology Optimizes Laser Material Deposition

The quality of additively manufactured components depends not only on the manufacturing process, but also on the inline process control. The process control ensures a reliable coating process because it detects deviations from the target geometry immediately. At LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be demonstrating how well bi-directional sensor technology can already be used for Laser Material Deposition (LMD) in combination with commercial optics at booth A2.431.

Fraunhofer ILT has been developing optical sensor technology specifically for production measurement technology for around 10 years. In particular, its »bd-1«...

Im Focus: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...
