HANNOVER, Germany — Laser Zentrum Hannover EV and Apodius GmbH are collaborating on a project to repair fiber-reinforced plastics by combining a measuring device for fiber layer orientation with a laser-based repair process.

The goal of the fiber orientation measuring unit is to repair defects in fiber-reinforced plastic workpieces, avoid the replacement of parts and save money.

“For the manufacturers, this means saving time and costs,” said Dietmar Kracht, executive director of Laser Zentrum Hannover. “And the longer the lifetime of a component, the better the ecological balance and the resource-efficiency is.”

The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy within the framework of the Central Innovation Program for a duration of two years.
