COVID 19 info
During COVID-19 crisis our work continues: a lot works via video conferencing. You can send us samples that we process in our labs in Aachen and send back afterwords. We take videos of processing your samples. Therefore you can keep talking to your customers.
We also discuss laser protection reports via video conference. If a machine or a laboratory has to be inspected, it is also possible to maintain a sufficient safety distance.
Laser process development
We are developing laser processes for material processing. With 17 years experience in laser process development, a few tests on your samples are enough to find the right laser and parameter for you production process. We are specialized in laser processes for the photovoltaic, organic and flexible electronics, display and lighting technology as well as the automotive industry and special research applications.
In our laser laboratory in Aachen we have CO2 lasers, diode lasers and nanosecond lasers with different pulse duration. The wavelengths are 1030nm, 1064nm, 532nm, 515nm, 355nm and one femtosecond laser with 1030nm. Further lasers are available in the “Laboratory for Industrial Laser Technology and Optical Systems” at the TH Köln.
Laser contract manufacturing
With our laser systems in in Aachen and at TH Köln Campus Gummersbach, we develop laser processes and make subcontracting for manufacturing with laser. In Aachen we can also process harmful material. We can even build up our equipment at your place. At TH Köln we do laser processing in high-vacuum or inert gas of organic electronics devices. In laser additive manufacturing use of vacuum or inert gas can prevent bubbles, oxidation and redeposition during laser processing.
Development of optical systems and assemblies
We build optical systems and assemblies for integration into machines or other systems. This can be for example alternative beam-shaping units for systems, where the distance between process head and work-peace becomes not so critical with this beam shaping. We also develop and implement systems for process control
Development of test systems, prototypes and laboratory setups
We develop test systems and laboratory equipment. We also give our equipment for rent for temporary use in production. And we can use your existing equipment for integration. Or you buy the expensive components and we integrate them. Your advantage: this is cost-effective and the warranty claims of the components and the intellectual property rights remain with you.
Support of planning of production systems
We have 15 years experience in developing and building complex laser production systems. While we do not supply turnkey laser equipment for mass production, we provide concepts, cost estimates, specifications, and help select the right machine builder. In addition, we help you or your machine builder with the integration of lasers, including laser safety reports and process optimizations.
Import of laser components and systems
We import lasers and components into the EU. In particular we import for customers in public research and take care of the CE certification
Expertise on laser safety
We inspect laser systems regarding laser safety and help with the design of laser protection devices. In cooperation with the TH Köln we train to become “laser safety officer”
