Laser Material Processing from XXS to XXL at the Hannover Messe 2009

At this year's Hannover Messe (April 20th – 24th, 2009), the Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH) will present a wide spectrum of laser technology and its use in industry. No other tool can be used to process so many different materials (metals, plastics, glass, silica, textiles etc.) in so many different scales, from nanoparticles (10-9mm) to micro-turbine blades (10-3mm) to the welding of thick sheet metals.


At Stand H 09 in hall 6, the LZH will show the following, innovative uses of laser technology:

  • Laser welding of metals (for example hybrid welding or welding of form memory implants)
  • Laser welding of technical textiles for e.g. airbags
  • Laser welding of glass and metal for solar collectors
  • Increasing the output of solar cells by using laser drilling and structuring
  • Increasing the output of solar cells by using laser drilling and structuring
  • Micro-welding and micro-stereolithography (for example, for micro-structuring and micro rapid prototyping)
  • Laser-generated nanoparticles for use in medicine technology,
  • and much more…

The LZH offers customer-specific solutions in almost all areas of laser technology, for almost all branches of industry. Our know-how should be to your advantage. More information can be found at
