MWIR camera installation in LPBF technology for melt pool monitoring and closed loop control

At the end of Feburary the CUSTODIAN partners got a step closer to their aim of creating a methodology of application-driven laser beam, by tailoring the material microstructure and deploying this beam to solve hot-cracking in LBW (Laser Beam welding) and LPBF (Laser Powder Bed Fusion): The MWIR camera has been installed in the LPBF […]

Third consortium meeting in Vienna after first project year

Last week, on 11 and 12 December 2019 CUSTODIAN organised the third consortium project meeting in Vienna, Austria.  This third meeting was hosted by our project partner TuWien. During the third face-to-face partners’ meeting, we briefly presented our progress on the project, reviewed and analyzed the next steps to be followed during CUSTODIAN and the […]

AIMEN and NIT visit AIDIMME’s facilities for laser tests and characterizations

Our CUSTODIAN partners David Diego from AIMEN and Germán Vergara from NIT (New Infrared Technologies) have visited the AIDIMME facilities and met Mario Martínez Ceniceros in November 2019. They have been working on different laser tests and characterizations carried out over the customized 4kW Concept Laser SLM available in AIDIMME. These measurements will be a key factor […]

TU Wien and Think Solidification sign an agreement for cooperation in the framework of CUSTODIAN© project

The goal of the cooperation is to enhance the capabilities of TU Wien’s simulation model for laser processing by incorporating solidification grain structure physics from Think Solidification’s SPrime software. TU Wien has been has been pushing further the state of the art of fluid dynamics simulation of laser processes over the last years. Currently they […]

This second time we met with the aim of sharing the progress of the first six months of the project. […]

NIT visits AIDIMME installations to define the integration of the MWIR system in the Selective Laser Melting machine

Last January 15th, the Spanish company NIT ( New Infrared Technologies), that develops uncooled infrared image detectors and sensors for the MWIR band, visited AIDIMME‘s installations. This meeting was related to the integration of the MWIR system in the Selective Laser Melting machine. During the meeting, the next steps, to define the integration well, were […]

Revolutionizing the laser – CUSTODIAN project begins

CUSTODIAN is the first project aimed at valuing the unique ability of the laser to make a personalized energy contribution to the needs of material, a task that, at present, is not possible with other technology. The project will make it possible for any laser process to be designed exactly according to the thermal transformation […]
