Due to their precision and flexibility matched with high machining rates and high efficiency, laser-based technologies open up new opportunities for designing products and processes. The development of new laser beam sources in combination with fast beam guiding systems has led to a considerable increase in the efficiency of processes. Examples are laser beam welding of dissimilar metal combinations and joining of fibre-reinforced plastic for lightweight construction or micro-machining of different materials for the generation of completely new functions. Currently, laser-based additive manufacturing technologies are in focus of interest. The selection of appropriate system technology and processes is essential for the success of new laser technologies in production. As an independent research and services enterprise the Bayerisches Laserzentrum GmbH (blz) has cross-technological competences including process technology, system technology, laser safety as well as training and education. Thus the blz is a qualified partner for production-related questions. We are pleased to support you to meet the technological challenges of the future with modern manufacturing processes.
