A Dynamic Beam Laser from Civan Lasers has been installed at Fraunhofer IWS in Dresden. The institute is thus the first research institution worldwide to utilize such a laser solution. (Image: Fraunhofer IWS)

Fraunhofer IWS to explore benefits of new dynamic beam shaping technology

The institute expects the technology to overcome the challenges of using crack-sensitive materials in additive manufacturing

CO2 lasers can be used to improve the carving of Tibetan mani stones, which depict Buddhist mantras, sutras, Buddha images or symbols. (Image: CKLaser)

CO2 lasers optimise ancient Tibetan stone carving

Laser engraving has allowed Tibetan mani stone carvers to carry on an important tradition, while also introducing new possibilities to this ancient art
