Carbon fibre in the fast lane

A single fibre is just a fraction of the thickness of a human hair. When combined, however, carbon fibre is an extremely light yet strong material that is now an essential part of aircraft and automotive construction, offering almost limitless possibilities, particularly when combined with other materials.

Lasers make welding mobile

Whenever a job involves joining two components, there’s generally no way to avoid welding. The technique is well-proven, with a range of solutions that range from the simple to the relatively complex. Laser welding plays a particularly special role in industry, as it allows the work to be performed on a mobile basis, taking the welder directly where the work is needed to reduce costs and increase efficiency.

Additive Layer Manufacturing: A Revolution in 3D

3D printers have triggered a new industrial revolution, enabling companies to manufacture complex components more easily and at a lower cost than ever before. At the same time, the process opens up new options for lightweight construction techniques. Car manufacturers, Formula 1, and many other sectors are already making use of this technology, and in the aviation industry, entire engine parts and fuselage sections are made by 3D printing.
