With more than 415 employees and more than 19,500 m² net floor space the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is worldwide one of the most important development and contract research institutes of its specific field. The activities cover a wide range of areas such as the development of new laser beam sources and components, precise laser based metrology, testing technology and industrial laser processes. This includes laser cutting, caving, drilling, welding and soldering as well as surface treatment, micro processing and rapid manufacturing. Furthermore, the Fraunhofer ILT is engaged in laser plant technology, process control, modelling and simulation as well as in the entire system technology. We offer feasibility studies, process qualification and laser integration in customer specific manufacturing lines.
The Fraunhofer ILT has more than 20 years of experience in additive manufacturing using SLM and LMD and is one of the leading institutes in this field. The main focus of R&D work is process development including modelling for different base and additive materials and the part specific adaptation of the processes yielding in qualified, and in case of necessity certified and industrially implemented processes in different industries.
Further activities comprise machine and component development such as preheating devices for SLM or compact LMD heads as well as investigations for online process control.
