Network "ultrashort pulsed laser" goes into phase 3

January 2018: The possibilities of the innovative micromachining technology were bundled three years ago in the "ultrashort pulsed laser" network. The network will be continued in 2018 by non-governmental partners.

In the last years a non-contact fabrication technology for material processing of finest contours has been established. Ultrafast laser pulses allow drilling, cutting, structuring or ablation of near unlimited variety of materials with accuracies in the micrometre range. Metals, polymers, foils or even brittle materials like glass, ceramic or sapphire – the ultrafast laser can handle all these materials without contact of a tool which even can wear out.

Further advantages of the new ultrafast laser technology are the very good resolution (typ. 10 µm) and the possibility to effectively process all materials even transparent or thermal sensitive ones, which is only possible due to the low heat introduction coming along with very short laser pulses.

The possibilities of the innovative micro machining technology were gathered with the Ultrashort laser network three years ago. The network is funded by the German Bundeswirtschaftsministerium and was built up and managed by EurA AG. It consists of 12 small and medium sized enterprises, 3 big companies and 8 research institutions, especially from the laser materials processing section. The network is continued in 2018 without national funding. By cross-linking and introduction of further partners, the technology network will be further formed and expanded. This means, the network is open to new partners interested in the further dissemination of the technology with its diverse possibilities especially in micro machining.

Are you interested in the network or are you looking for solutions to your problems in micro machining? Then please contact us with your challenges on! Surely, we are able to put you into contact with one or several competent network partners developing an individual solution for you.
