Breakthrough in Laser Surface Functionalisation with SurFunction’s ELIPSYS® class Optics: CLASCO's Leap into 2024

As we step into the new year of 2024, the CLASCO project is excited to unveil a groundbreaking technological leap that promises to reshape the landscape of laser based sustainable manufacturing.

Welcome to the New Year with CLASCO,

As we embark on 2024, the CLASCO project team is pleased to announce a significant technological advancement: the development of the innovative ELIPSYS® class optics for our Direct Laser Interference Patterning (DLIP) process part. This advancement, realised by our consortium members SurFunction and TU Dresden, represents a key milestone in our journey to revolutionise sustainable manufacturing practices for many applications, such as in the BioMed and Aerospace industries.

This milestone is not only a testament to our technological prowess, but also to our commitment to sustainable innovation. The ELIPSYS® optics have already demonstrated a remarkable depth of field, which is critical for the precise customisation of more complex shaped material surfaces, setting new industry standards for efficiency and environmental responsibility.

The progress we have made in the first phase of our project brings us closer to the completion of the CLASCO machine - a cornerstone in our quest to establish a fully laser-based, environmentally friendly manufacturing route for metallic components.

This marks the beginning of further joint achievements. We look forward to sharing our progress as we continue to draw inspiration from the efficiency and sustainability of nature's microscopic designs.

Stay tuned as we push the boundaries of innovation and sustainability in laser surface manufacturing.
