Laser Symposium on Electromobility

Following a successful premiere in 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will kick off the second Laser Symposium on Electromobility – LSE’20 – in Aachen on February 12, 2020. The two-day event will focus on high-efficiency laser techniques for every step in the process chain for producing batteries and electric vehicles. One of the main highlights will be a presentation from Swiss company E-Force One AG on the electrification of heavy-duty transportation.

Fraunhofer to present results of FutureAM project at Formnext

In the Fraunhofer project 'FutureAM – Next Generation Additive Manufacturing,' six Fraunhofer institutes are collaborating to accelerate the processing speed of additive manufacturing with metal powder by a factor of ten.

At Formnext this year, between 19-22 November in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, the institutes will present initial results that prove that this accelaration in processing speed will indeed be possible.
