Project ID: G1RD-CT-2000-00370
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: Germany

Optimisation of laser assisted turning

The result consists in the development of a laser-assisted turning process for soft material before hardening for the part selected in the project. This leads to a flexible integration of a laser optic in a lathe, with which the material should be heated and softened before applying the cutting tool. The aim is to reduce cutting forces, increase the lifetime of the tool and achieve higher removal rates.
