Let’s start at the very beginning- shaping the end-user applications.
OPeraTIC is at the beginning of its journey to develop a digital and mechanical platform to bring the benefits of high-powered, ultrafast lasers into large scale industrial applications. This planned system will cover all the essential aspects of laser manufacturing, including machine and digital architecture, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and adaptive processing of complex 3D parts, to enable a wide application of Ultra-Short-Pulsed Lasers (USPL) within the manufacturing sector, directly impacting the production of components used in everyday life. The four use cases included within the project have been specifically chosen to ensure this application is tested across a wide range of sectors, manufacturing processes and, ultimately, commercial relevance. The use cases, therefore, include production elements from the home appliances, aeronautics, automotive, and lighting sectors.
OPeraTIC partner Sofitec promotes project Our OPeraTIC partner, Sofitec, has been promoting the project to its networks, focusing on the Spanish speaking photonics stakeholders. Sofitec are one of the key case study companies the project will be working with to ensure the machine outcome from the project can be fully operated by industrial partners. Sofitec […]
The project partners of OPeraTIC have met for the first time in Vigo, Spain, to take forward the discussion and development of the project delivery.
The OPeraTIC project opened in October 2022 and is already underway with actions to boost the uptake of ultra-short pulsed lasers in industrial settings.
