LZH | During the EuroBLECH 2018, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. will be opening the labs for visitors on 25 October 2018 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. In live demonstrations, the research institute will be showing application examples for the laser material processing of the future.

Visitors of EuroBLECH 2018 and everybody interested in the laser material processing of tomorrow can experience the latest trends at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) on 25 October 2018 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. During the "Open House during EuroBLECH 2018", the institute presents various laser systems live in action.

Laser joining, cutting and printing and process control

From 3D-printed parts made of metal and plastic to laser-assisted bomb defusing and laser-formed lightweight construction materials, the LZH shows an impressive range of laser processes and applications. Laser experts will be available as discussion partners for all questions about laser material processing.

The registration for this event is free-of-charge. Snacks are included. For information on the "Open House during EuroBLECH 2018" please see www.lzh.de/en/ohEuroBLECH18. Please register in advance at www.lzh.de/de/registration-ohEuroBLECH18.

  • By combining conventional processes with laser processes, material, process steps and energy can be saved. If, for example, GMAW welding torches are combined with the laser, this additionally stabilizes the arc. Thus, the weld seam becomes much deeper, and the welding speed increases. Especially for thick metal sheets, the welding time and the required energy can be significantly reduced.
