Ablation and Cutting

The laser as a tool for cutting and ablation


High speed laser processing

Customer-tailored solutions for processing optics with enhanced functionality, CAD/CAM tools for Remote and on-the-fly processing and software components for online process monitoring and control.

Laser cutting

Laser beam cutting research topics include the development of technologies such as the process throughput optimization for components made of all materials that are used in modern manufacturing. At the IWS we use highly dynamic 2D and 3D cutting machines with direct linear drives and modern robots as well as laser of various power and beam quality levels.

Process design and analysis

The profound understanding of physical mechanisms and inherent interactions supports the finding of new approaches for process optimization and performance advancements. In line with this guiding idea, we have been focusing our research on the development of theoretical models for laser material processing.
