BIAS - Bremen Institute of Applied Beam Technology was founded 1977. Today,
about 100 employees work at the interface between science and industry. The use of lasers enables fast, accurate rapid manufacturing. It offers researches plus the range of measurement techniques and contract research on specific industrial problems. Application examples: hybrid processes, laser soldering and welding of steels. Laser-based microstructuring available for customized surfaces is in research and use. The knowledge gained is transferred with partners in industrial applications.
For nearly 20 years, laser ultrasonics is researched, tested and further developed at BIAS. The research platform forms, including various types of lasers, a unique feature in Germany.
