IWS engineers utilize substantial equipment and facility installations and solid know-how to perform applied research projects in the field of micro and fine processing ...
Joining is a central production challenge and also a significant cost factor. In many cases current joining technology developments offer significant improvements ...
Laser beam welding techniques have found their way into diversified industrial serial applications. Procedures with integrated short-time heating, with material-adopted ...
With its new, sensor-integrated coaxial processing head, Fraunhofer IWS is expanding its proven product range of laser processing heads for powder cladding.
An innovative ...
Two inductively preheated metal stripes are fed to a rolling gap at an angle of about 90° to each other. Directly in front of that gap, the inner surfaces ...
Laser procedures offer novel solutions for the generating of wear-resistant surfaces. This is especially true for such cases, in which standard hardening technologies ...
Fraunhofer IWS develops processes and systems for industrial applications of laser cladding. Of special interest here are surface coating, repair by means of direct ...
The atmospheric plasma spray (APS) as well as flame spray processes are available at IWS for the coating of components made of steel, light metals or other materials ...
Our laser beam cutting topics focus on the investigation of process developments in the field of laser fusion cuttings. The scientists especially attach attention ...
We focus on application-oriented research and development, covering all steps: starting with physical- and material- technological basic knowledge and ending with holistic systems development. We bundle our strength, on the one hand, on laser technology( e.g.laser welding, cutting, coating, hardening, cleaning) and, on the other hand, on surface technology (e.g. laser build up welding, cladding thin film technology).
