LUNOVU - Integrated Laser Solutions

LUNOVU designs and builds complex laser systems, providing integrated solutions for customers in R&D and industry, in applications such as additive manufacturing, laser cladding or micro processing. Our unique products are based on high performance hardware, proprietary control software and application specific process know-how.

LUNOVU laser systems are based on a modular concept. The product portfolio covers 2 to 5 axes cartesian setups in various sizes. Additionally, systems based on articulated robots are available. By merging all critical system components, such as mechanics, electronics, controls, automation and process,  a truly integrated system is created which offers significant added value to our customers.

LUNOVU laser machines use latest technology. Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) systems for laser cladding, (also referred to as DED - Direct Energy Deposition or DMD - Direct Metal Deposition) for example, are equipped with a unique sensor technology that scans and digitizes parts surfaces, and automatically calculates and executes welding paths.

Recently, the EHLA process (extreme high speed laser cladding) which was developed by Fraunhofer ILT gained a lot of interest due to its capability to coat parts with unsurpassed velocity and efficiency.
