Reaping rewards with robotics

Matthew Dale looks at what can be achieved by combining robots with lasers, including a novel tool for repairing jet engines being developed by Rolls-Royce

Lasing on the wing

Matthew Dale on some of the laser processing that goes into building aircraft, from treating carbon fibre wing skins to 3D printing lightweight brackets

High-flying manufacturing

Tom Eddershaw looks at the variety of laser processing methods used in aerospace production, including cleaning composites and laser marking aircraft parts

A cooler way to fly

Turbines are being designed to run at higher temperatures to improve fuel efficiency. Advances in cooling techniques rely heavily on laser technology, not just in making jet engines but also in monitoring air flow, as Jessica Rowbury discovers
