A Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) system from Lunovu has been put into operation at the Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) in Cottbus, Germany. The machine system was purchased by the chair for mechanical design and manufacturing to meet multiple requirements ranging from materials development to the production of lightweight materials.

“A major target of our research activities is the local engineering of materials and parts. Therefore, it was crucial to procure an LMD system which is reliable and easy to operate,” says Professor Markus Bambach, head of the chair for mechanical design and manufacturing at BTU. “At the same time, we also looked for a flexible system that can be easily extended according to future research requirements. Even special features could be implemented by Lunovu, such as the integration of a laser cutting module. This will help us to develop local reinforcements on sheet metal blanks.”

“We are excited about the future research topics in which the machine is intended to play an important role,” says Dr. Rainer Beccard, managing director at Lunovu.

The chair for mechanical design and manufacturing at BTU Cottbus focuses in a holistic approach on virtual concepts for manufacturing processes from design to the final part. The target of the experimental work is the exploration of integrated process chains, with a special focus on hybrid processes that combine forming, additive and subtractive methods.
