Development of an Efficient Manufacturing of Laser.. (EMLACS)
Development of an Efficient Manufacturing of Laser Assisted Colds-Sprayed components for the Automotive Industry
Start date: Jun 1, 2014,
End date: May 31, 2016
"The main objective of the EMLACS project is to develop an novel Efficient Manufacturing Laser Assisted Cold-Spray (EMLACS) process that combines a Low Pressure Cold-Spray (LPCS) technology with a flexible laser source operating in the a range from nano to pico second for surface modification.This innovative process will help preparing components’ surface for coating. Coating is of particular importance for industrial application, namely automotive because it can be applied to a wide range of products covering technologies for the entire spectrum of decorative and functional surface treatment for various materials including steel, aluminium and plating on plastics and composite and all possible applications from engine and power train to electrical devices.The EMLACS project will offer unmatched coating and plating abilities, enabling the incorporation of new high performance materials in industrial productions."
