LasTech – Laser technologies for manufacturing functional 3D and surface structures
“LasTech – laser technologies for manufacturing functional 3D and surface structures” is a new endeavor addressing the identification of micro metallurgical parameters for laser generated parts. One of the results was a substantial porosity reduction of the parts from 1.53 % to 0.04 % pore fraction.
Additional research aims at minimizing the structure size, reducing the post processing requirements and improving the surface quality. Basic parameters with respect to strength and porosity were developed for lightweight construction applications. The project results were implemented in “ready to use” sample components in apparatus construction and medical device technology.
