Numerical investigation of the influence of clamping conditions during laser beam welding on local weld temperature fields and cooling-down conditions

Based on our comprehensive experience in theoretical process design and analysis we offer services involving following topics:

  • Feasibility analysis of laser-based manufacturing technologies prior and in addition to experimental investigations
  • Computation of steady-state and transient temperature fields in workpieces and components, and determination of corresponding heating and cooling profiles
  • Simulation of melt pool shape and size in laser based melting processes
  • Development of CFD models for numerical analysis of gas flows applied in laser material processing
  • Design of experiments and corresponding analysis in combination with numerical and experimental investigations
  • Energetic process design and evaluation of particular laser material treatment processes for determinations of power requirements and process efficiencies
