Additive manufacturing with liquid materials

The use of additive manufacturing processes is increasing within industrial applications, as they bring some significant customer benefits compared to conventional processes. Additive manufacturing is based upon the layered structure of a component. The production time therefore depends on the volume to be applied to the component. The geometric shape of the individual layers has Read more about Additive manufacturing with liquid materials[…]

Radiation characteristics measured with high precision

Advanced lighting technology for the measurement of solid-state lighting sources will be demonstrated at several photometric and spectroradiometric measuring stations at booth #10506. Among the highlights are the new Read more about Radiation characteristics measured with high precision[…]

Geothermal drilling: High-power laser weakens and fractures hard rock

Geothermal heat is a renewable energy source, low in emissions and capable of assuming part of the base load in the energy mix. When drilling deep into the earth’s crust, the temperature rises by an average of about three degrees Celsius per 100 meters. However, in deep geothermal drilling the drill bits encounter different materials, Read more about Geothermal drilling: High-power laser weakens and fractures hard rock[…]

On safe paths

The RSL 400 safety laser scanner not only ensures that automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are operated safely by means of protective and warning fields, but it also simultaneously captures the measurement values for the navigation software. When the triangulation principle is used for navigation, AGVs are usually equipped with two different sensors: one for safety Read more about On safe paths[…]

Low noise laser line generators with reduced coherence

The LNC-series low noise laser diode modules from Schäfter+Kirchhoff have reduced power noise, reduced coherence length and low speckle contrast as a result of an internal RF-modulation. The low noise (< 1% RMS, <1 MHz) and the mode-hopping free laser operation makes them ideal for particle measurements or advanced medical and biotechnological applications. Laser diodes Read more about Low noise laser line generators with reduced coherence[…]
