Beginning of July 2021, the Custodian Laser partners have met for the 6th remote plenary meeting to discuss the project progress & present the work done so far to our External Expert Advisory Board (EEAB), represented by Vojislav Petrovic-Filipovic from Joanneum Reaearch Forschungsgesellschaft, Jesús Jiménez Palacios from Valeo, and Paolo Calefati from Prima Industrie S.p.A.
It was good opportunity to show the achieved milestones, and to get some advice and valuable contributions for next actions, both from the technical and exploitation points of view. The feedback of the EEAB representatives about the achieved work since our last EEAB meeting in December 2018 in Vienna was very positive and the consortium partners have made a remarkable progress.
These upcoming months will be key in the evolution of our industrial laser solutions. After having achieved the first prototype of an MPLC-based LBW processing head and its installation and tests at the AIMEN facilities, the partners are now working on the beam shaping module based on MPLC technology integrated within a Precitec cutting head and the next prototype for the PBF-LB/M process. Stay tuned to follow our research milestones and to have a look behind the scenes of our project and partners’ activities!
