Much of Jasmin Saewe’s research work is aimed at expanding the range of materials available for use in additive manufacturing (AM).

“Some say there are already enough materials in AM, however if you look at the numbers, I would say that in conventional manufacturing there are still several factors more materials available to select from,” she said in a recent webinar.

Laser process to optimise MEMS sensor size and performance

Researchers are using laser-based crystallisation to eliminate the need for wires and solder joints in the monolithic integration of MEMS sensors

Researchers print cost-effective MEMS loudspeaker

The process could be used as a faster and more affordable alternative to vacuum- and mask-based piezo-MEMS manufacturing methods

At booth 4629-27 Fraunhofer ILT will be exhibiting new laser optics with diamond lenses that have enabled the institute to produce a laser cutting head that is 90 per cent lighter than comparable components instead using glass lenses
