Machines and Controls Group

  • Photonic joining processes for
    lightweight construction

  • Software-based process control and quality monitoring

  • Development of customer-specific laser systems

Laser-supported arc-welding processes as well as their simulation and monitoring are the focuses of the Machines and Controls Group. In this area, dissimilar joints, for example aluminum and steel, are playing an increasingly important role. Also, the LZH scientists design and implement information systems for laser material processing, process control as well as process control and quality monitoring software, with customer benefits always being of top priority.

The group profile is rounded off by processes for additive manufacturing at the macro-scale, and the development of laser systems for industry. From system components to complete systems, the LZH scientists construct customized entire systems.
