The interaction between the laser beam with mainly metal materials from basic research to industrial contract research
Welcome to the LZH
As an independent non-profit research institute for photonics and laser technology the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) stands for innovative research, development and consulting. The focus of our applied research in the field of photonic technologies is on:
Optical components and systems
Optical production technologies
Interdisciplinarity is thereby strongly emphasized since the foundation 1986 and is the basis of the excellent work at the LZH. As a reliable partner of the industry, we constantly focus on the customer benefit und use light for innovation.
Light, resource-efficient and at the same time robust - what is good for lightweight construction in the automobile industry is just as important for ship construction. Therefore, steel-aluminum joints are also used for ships. However, ships need completely different material thicknesses. The ten partners of the project LaSAAS, under the leadership of the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH), are dedicated to developing a robust laser welding process for the maritime manufacturing.
Wear comfort and excellent sound transmission are essential for people who use in-ear hearing aids or headsets. Since June 2015, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and seven partners have been working in the group 3D-PolySPRINT on increasing both the functionality and wear comfort, and simultaneously on reducing delivery times. They are focusing on non-tactile imaging and combined multi-material 3-D printing processes in order to manufacture otoplastics which are optimally adapted to the auditory canal.
The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will present how laser-based technologies can contribute to the laboratory of the future at the LABVOLUTION in Hannover in Hall 9, Stand E67/09, from October 6th to 8th, 2015. As a part of the model lab smartLAB, the LZH is showing how additive manufacturing, better known as 3-D printing, can make experimental setups more flexible.
