Made-to-measure micromachining with laser beams tailored in amplitude and phase

Project description

Laser technology to make industrial production lines cleaner and greener

Eco-friendly manufacturing processes protect the planet from exploitation and conserve natural resources. This makes global industry more sustainable and environmentally friendly. The EU-funded METAMORPHA project will create a single, fully electric, digital device based on ultrashort pulse laser micromachining. It will replace the mechanical and chemical processes on many conventional production lines, while producing no chemical waste. Furthermore, being both agile and scalable, it promises to eliminate the need for thousands of production processes that negatively impact the environment. A life cycle analysis (LCA) and social LCA will be performed to assess the environmental and socio-economic benefits.
