Through innovative Additive Manufacturing processes, the ZIM Innovation Network AMglass+ partners want to make new products and constructions made of glass possible. Products of all sizes are conceivable, from load-bearing glass facades in structural glass engineering to microliter sample carriers in bioanalytics. The Glass Group of the Production and Systems Department contributes to the Network on behalf of the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH). After the kick-off meeting in June, another meeting of the Innovation Network AMglass+ partners took place virtually at the end of November last year.

In the future, the LZH will complement the network with its competencies in 3D printing, for example, for laser deposition welding of glass fibers.
