MTC installs waterjet guided laser

The five-axis system allows engineers to cut, drill or machine complex shapes without the drawbacks associated with traditional laser machining such as heat build up or tapers

LMD and LPBF can be used to produce composite materials with thin layers and a range of different properties. (Image Fraunhofer ILT)

AM used to produce metal composites

The 3D printing method can be used to produce a ferrous composite material of balanced hardness and toughness – similar to Damascus steel.

Hamamatsu Photonics creates spatial light modulator delivering pulse laser power up to 400GW/cm²

Hamamatsu Photonics has created a spatial light modulator that delivers pulse laser power capability up to 400 GW/cm2, by utilizing its advanced thin-film and circuit designing technologies. This new SLM to high-power industrial pulsed laser systems will contribute to achieve high-throughput, high-precision laser processing to processing resistant material such as light-weight and high-strength carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP).
