Highlights from research and development

Domain refinement of electric sheets with laser remote technology

Previously, the Fraunhofer IWS, the Rofin Sinar Laser GmbH and the Maschinenfabrik Arnold had jointly developed systems to refine domains in electric sheets using laser remote technology. In 2015 another system was installed for an industrial customer in Asia. The installed plant laser continually treats a moving band of material with an annual capacity of 50,000 tons. It has 4 fiber lasers and a single beam scanning system.
