Concept Laser’s quality management system for real-time monitoring of the LaserCUSING process, also known as selective laser melting, includes an evaluation of the process data, which can be adapted to the customer’s documentation. The pilot partner is the German Aerospace Centre. Its Engineering Systems House division uses the Concept Laser process to conduct research on turbine components and other metal applications in aircraft construction. The QM package includes real-time monitoring of the melt pool at the microscopic level. The melt-pool module follows the ongoing construction process with several thousand scans per second, analyzing data within the melt track in real time.
