Research projects

Due to their versatility and flexibility, laser techniques have a great deal of potential – for example to replace existing mechanical manufacturing processes. With innovative developments in laser technology they can even allow novel applications. As one of the leading technology companies with our focus on industrial and medical laser processing, we are involved in diverse research and funding projects regarding laser technology in the role of initiator and project partner.

In addition to the development of new techniques and processing procedures, these also include projects for designing innovative scanning technology and accessories such as in the field of measurement technology, to name one example. Together with our project partners in the sectors of industry and research, we would like to expand this advancement in knowledge further and help shape the future of laser technology through a wide range of funding and research projects.
