Research Projects

Ever since our founding, we have driven innovation – always with the goal of increasing customer satisfaction and advancing the state of technology.

In recent years, we have made numerous process developments. In addition to classic process developments made together with customers based on a product concept, we have been involved in general industry research into new laser processes and technology concepts for many years.

We are a member of the DVS (German Welding Society) technical committee, which gives us direct contact with other companies and research institutes involved in laser material processing. Our R&D department participates in technical committee FA6 and advises various project committees, meaning we have a hand in current trends and developments.

From 2014 to 2017 we were part of a network with well-known partners in the ZIM project “LaRS”. ZIM is the Central Innovation Programme for small and medium-sized enterprises. In the LaRS development project, we designed and built a clamping device with integrated suction for a laser remote cutting system for CFRP materials.

In 2019, we decided to get even more involved in sponsored research projects, and to build and strengthen our cooperation with other companies and institutes. At the moment, three different schemes on OCT project monitoring and laser welding with coloured wavelengths are in the planning or application phases.

 

At the start of 2020, the “Toplamp” research project was approved by DLR as part of the “Eureka Eurostars” funding programme (Eurostars project number: E!113752).

Toplamp is an international cooperation between German and South Korean partners – BBW Lasertechnik is the German project leader and the ILT Fraunhofer Institute is the German scientific institution, whilst K-Lab and the KIMM Institute represent South Korea. This project will be just two years long.

The goal is to develop a 2D, on-the-fly technology platform for bipolar plates, and to develop a self-learning system on the basis of process monitoring data.
