Austrian Competences in Aeronautics Technology


Due to our long-time experience we can offer laser and plasma-assisted deposition and processing services based on in-depth materials expertise and develop processes tailored to the component properties. Competent advice, process development, small batch production, transfer into serial readiness as well as process optimisation and quality management are our strength.

Technologies and competences

Advice in laser processing. Process development in the fields of laser welding, laser alloying and (3D) laser cladding. Support in the development of plant concepts and process transfer into serial production. Process optimisation and quality assurance. Integration in production processes. Laser beam diagnostics. Laser and plasma-assisted deposition methods in vacuum and atmospheric pressure.
