Scanner head developed for high-throughput laser texturing

The scanner is capable of producing periodic surface structures with features of around 3.5µm in size, which is about eight-times smaller than those achievable with conventional polygon scanners

Paul Butler-Smith and Tian Long See demonstrate how the surface friction of stainless-steel medical tools can be reduced using pulsed and ultrashort-pulsed laser processing

Improving scalpel blade cut quality using laser surface texturing

Paul Butler-Smith and Tian Long See, of the MTC, demonstrate how the surface friction of stainless-steel medical tools can be reduced using pulsed and ultrashort-pulsed laser processing

Laser Application Forum

Every two years users and manufacturers, service providers, experts and decision-makers come together in Bremen in north Germany for the Laser Application Forum "LAF", hosted by BIAS.

Researchers optimise nanostructuring rates using ultrafast lasers

The work has led to the scientists being able to form LIPs over a square metre area in several hours

LaserEMobility was founded in 2020 by the Politecnico di Milano, the Università di Bologna, and the Technical University of Munich along with the industrial members IMA Automation Atop, Manz, and Raylase.

Looking back on LaserEMobility Workshop 2022

The event was held in Bologna in March, taking up the challenge of responding to the increasing industrial pull for laser-based manufacturing systems in the production of electric vehicles
