Development of a new processing head for laser-assisted plasma welding (LuPS)

  • Funding agency: Sächsisches Staatsministerium für Wirtschaft, Arbeit und Verkehr
  • Reference: 100189174
  • Duration: 01.01.2016 – 02.02.2018

The content of the cooperative research project supported by SAB with the Fraunhofer IWS and the TU Dresden is the investigation of a novel laser-assisted plasma welding process in coaxial arrangement.

Within the framework of the project, the scientific basis for the development of a coaxial plasma laser torch is to be developed and the process advantages of the laser plasma process are to be analyzed, in particular the possibilities of substituting cost-intensive laser power by plasma power.
