SLM Solutions Provides Results

First-time application of nanoparticles in the laser beam cladding nano-particles used so far in the production of scratch-resistant automotive paints or as UV protection in sunscreens. The number of applications is high however and the versatile properties. “The Nano-part project funded by the BMBF production technology for Nano-particle layers to tools”, which looked after Karlsruhe (PTKA) by the promoter is, deals with the application of nanotechnology in the field of plant engineering and demonstrating innovative applications in the printing and stamping. Target is the coating of rollers, which place high demands on the wear resistance in the printing industry. To the ennui to counteract Antigleit or not hydrophilic properties, ceramic nano particles in the coating process should be applied together with metal powder on the rollers. In the field of paper punching technology, however, is the realization of a resource-efficient and at the same time low-cost manufacture of abrasion resistant punch lines on thin substrate panels, which enables the stamping foil and paper materials, required.

SLM solutions as partners of the project in decisive contributes to the successful implementation of the objectives set by the BMBF. In collaboration with the laser Zentrum Hannover e.V., the company Kocher + Beck of Rotary-stamping technology and the company Avantys engineering is the laser beam cladding of steel-ceramic composite layers for the paper cutting technique tested. We can say at this stage that we are capable of making surface and local coatings of components with constant storage of micro / Nano particle mixtures by means of laser beam welding”, says Dr. Schwarze, scientific coordinator of the SLM Solutions GmbH. should the use of technology in the future to the material savings in the production of Rotationsstanzwerkzeugen and lead to a natural of environmental resources.” On May 8 and 9, the SLM Solutions GmbH in a community presence is the results with federated partners introduce the innovative project on the Rapid.Tech in Erfurt of the trade fair for product development by the production of a prototype to the direct production of the final product and its components on the stand 2-310.

European Union

German management in conjunction with Polish production blends very well. Eastward enlargement of the European Union brought not only a huge, new market to Europe, but also production potentials. Poland has the best conditions for producers. Comparing the terretorialen aspect between Germany and Poland and represents the number of people living in the two countries to each other, in this comparison you will give me right with the assertion that the question of space plays a relatively minor role in Poland. The manufacturing sector is exposed in Poland not harassment issues, access difficulties, or extension of the production facility. The proximity to Germany within the new EU countries are the best conditions this country to invest as a producer.

Our six years of experience in this country, with German management allow us to write this assessment to others. In particular Poland could through foreign investment, accompanied by generous funding since 2003, an oversized Achieve growth. For the German market, Poland has several advantages as a supplier. Fast delivery times are guaranteed by the location of the border to Germany and a modern just-in-time work allows. An input and agreement from the Polish freight forwarding companies has secured the streets still poorly developed until now in Poland and associated infrastructure. Also on German motorways, you see mostly Polish trailers. Within Poland, pallets of evenly distributed logistics centres are shipping. Although this means that the goods will unloaded several times, until it reaches its target, but on the track as well as on the road there are numerous small carriers that transport the ordered goods to their destinations at each pick-up location. Since forwarding onerous duties are exempt from vehicle taxes in Poland, but are financed over the fuel price (standing, October 2008), uberdimmensionale freight forwarding companies offer compensates for the bad roads. In particular, transport costs for supplying goods or Commodities are a minor cost factor for producers.
