From Manufactory to Series Production
– Photonic Tools for Lightweight Structures
From 08 – 09 March 2017, the final event of the BMBF funding initiative “Photonic Processes and Tools for Resource-Efficient Lightweight Construction” will take place at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) in Hannover, Germany, and the Hannover Centre for Production Technology (PZH) in Garbsen, Germany. Here, the representatives of the different cooperative projects of the BMBF funding initiative will present important results of their projects, and an intensive discussion between the participants of the meeting is expected. Apart from the representatives of the BMBF and the responsible project management organization, participation in the meeting is restricted to members of the different cooperative projects. These members can download the agenda of the meeting in the download section.
From 16 – 20 October 2016, the 35th International Congress on Applications of Lasers & Electro-Optics (ICALEO®), one of the most important international conferences on laser material processing, took place in San Diego, CA/USA. The coordinator of the BMBF funding initiative “Photonic Lightweight Construction”, Dr.-Ing. Peter Jaeschke, presented the initiative and the corresponding cooperative projects in the course of a Sub Plenary talk. Moreover, a special session was initiated for the initiative („Photonics for Light Weight Construction“), in which expert presentations of the participating cooperative projects were held.
From 26 – 30 June 2016, the 17th European Conference on Composite Materials (ECCM 2016) took place in Munich, Germany. Here, the BMBF funding initiative “Photonic Lightweight Construction” was presented by the coordinator, Dr.-Ing. Peter Jaeschke, in a talk. The programme of the next ECCM conference can be found here.
From 15 – 16 June 2016, the 10th international CFK-Valley Stade Convention took place at the STADEUM in Stade, Germany. The motto of this year’s event was “Carbon & Mobility”. You can find the program here.
Parallel to the Convention, there was an exhibition, at which the Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH) was represented at exhibition stand no. 5 (Exhibition Space B). As coordinator of the BMBF funding initiative “Photonic Lightweight Construction”, LZH presented the different cooperative projects of the initiative here.
