The research team of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and the Chair of Digital Additive Production DAP of RWTH Aachen University will be honored with the Berthold Leibinger Innovationspreis 2018 for their development of the “Extreme High-Speed Laser Material Deposition” (EHLA). This process can be used to coat, repair or additively manufacture components in a particularly economical and environmentally friendly way. On September 21, the Aachen scientists will receive the first prize of the laser innovation prize awarded by the private foundation Berthold Leibinger Stiftung in Ditzingen, Germany, every other year since 2000 for outstanding research and development on the application or generation of laser light.
The timing was simply right: The research team heard on May 16, 2018 – the first International Day of Light – that it was invited to the jury session in Ditzingen as a finalist. On July 13, 2018, Thomas Schopphoven (Fraunhofer ILT) represented the team which includes his colleagues Andres Gasser (also Fraunhofer ILT) and Gerhard Maria Backes (Chair of Digital Additive Production DAP, RWTH Aachen University). He presented and explained their innovation alongside seven other finalist teams from all over the world.
