Fraunhofer IWS developed a laser technology to clean and structure surfaces particularly quickly while protecting the environment

Sandblasting with Light

Press release (No. 12) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden /

Sandblasting – that was yesterday. Laser beams can clean and structure surfaces more precisely, cost-effectively and in environmental friendlier ways than conventional systems. The Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS in Dresden has developed the technology “LIGHTblast” for this purpose which is now being transferred to the semiconductor manufacturing, automotive supply and other industries.
