Multibeam Laser Micro Drilling and Cutting
Flexible communication network in the field of industrial production systems integrated in company operations to develop competitiveness in mfg. Methods/design, mfg.Systems/ technology and organisation/human resource development.
Industry-driven cooperative r & d programme for maintaining european leadership in software-intensive systems (in which software represents a significant segment in system functionality, system development cost & risk, system dev. Time).
Pro-factory is a european network that aims to bring forward and coordinate applications-oriented, bottom-up, collaborative r&d projects in production and robotics for greater competitiveness and sustainability.
Within the project the utilisation of large machine tools with powerful spindles for micromachining will be enabled by a parallel high speed machining, which are investigated, applied and tested. The new combination leads to a significant widening of the application range of 5-axis-machine tools.
New wrought mg alloys with enhanced energy absorption will be developed. The properties of mg sheet-metals for body protection against hit, stab and ballistic threads will be guaranteed by thermodynamic-based alloy design and novel processing techniques. Weight reduction will be assured.
The microstructure and properties of adi parts depend on composition, as-cast microstructure and phase transformation kinetics. These parameters must be optimised to ensure the required properties. The project is aimed at the development of adi, treatment and simulation to optimize its manufacturing
To obtain detailed knowledge of trochoidal milling of titanium and inconel alloys, to develop optimised tools and coatings for this cutting process and to generate improved tool paths for 5 axis trochoidal milling in order to sustainably increase the material removal rate.
Development of a high energy high power fibre laser based on multicore / multifilament (mc/mf) fibres.
Frequency conversion into the deep-uv requires crystal material with superior properties regarding minimal absorption, high damage threshold, and nonlinear response. The project aims at improved control of uv crystal growth/processing and their application in enhancement cavities for cw regime.
