Conclusion of the “Borealis” H2020 European project

Borealis – the 3A energy class Flexible Machine for the new Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing on next generation of complex 3D metal parts. OPI Photonics, as a technology provider, has been responsible of all the optical chain and laser sources (pulsed and continuous wave) that enable the deposition and ablation processes. OPI developed several patented solutions for the laser beam shaping and BPP control for process optimization.

Conclusion of the “Appolo” FP7 European project

The Appolo project dealt with the realization of an Hub of Application Laboratories for Equipment Assessment in Laser Based Manufacturing; the project included several experiments to access the hub effectiveness: OPI has been involved in the NEW-DELI experiment that gathers together two SMEs, a technology provider (OPI) and an end-user (IRIS), and a lab belonging to the Appolo hub (BUAS) to experimentally assess a cutting edge ultra-short pulse (USP) fibre delivery system.
