Targeting steel surfaces


"Surface-functionalized steel strip materials using laser surface treatment in a continuous wide-strip process": ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe, the Fraunhofer Institute for Materials and Beam Technology IWS and LIMO have initiated research work on a new laser technology that the partners will use to improve the properties of steel strip surfaces. The collaboration is part of the BMBF funding program "Photonics Research Germany: Light with a Future" and is scheduled to be completed by 2017.
