Laser research projects to increase fuel efficiency of ships and aircraft

A number of ongoing European research projects are using laser technology to structure and clean the surfaces of ships and aircraft in order to improve their fuel efficiency

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.
