Laser technology to improve EU competitiveness
High production costs in Europe’s manufacturing sector have driven jobs away. The European Commission is promoting various initiatives to retrieve added value to Europe through the digitisation of products. Laser technology will improve laser machining based on ultrashort laser pulses achieving unprecedented precision. However, existing systems are fixed to only one incorporated laser, limiting their performance. The EU-funded SMAART project will integrate the prototype of an innovative laser amplifier technology in a modular, self-adjusting and self-smart laser machining system. The system integrates the novel laser system and optics and offers the functionalities of several laser systems for all micromachining applications in one industry-approved dual-head-machine, allowing the sophisticated production of highly individualised and tailored products.
