The methods of Additive Manufacturing are about to revolutionize industrial series production. Researchers of a leading German university are optimizing such methods together with a major automotive supplier. They analyze the laser-induced melt-pool in the metal powder as well as its behavior in relation to the laser process parameters. Thanks to the performance of new industrial high-speed cameras, the researchers are able to capture and evaluate these processes in detail, allowing for their significant optimization.
