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.
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.
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.
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.
Visit the LZH at the joint stand of the State of Lower Saxony in hall 2, stand A08!

Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
