“Materials Science and Engineering” MSE 2014, 25 September 2014, Darmstadt

UV-MARKING consortium in MSE 2014

Since the first realization in the year 2008 in Nuremberg, the biennial international conference “Materials Science and Engineering“ has not only steadily grown in the number of participants and contributions. Moreover, this event has developed such with respect to the width, the topicality and the scientific quality of the programme that it has to be considered truly a “must” for all materials scientists and engineers from both industry and science. Organized by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde (German Materials Society).

Main aim of this congress is to enhance transferable competences between scientific community, specially focused in young researchers, and industrial partners in order to bring scientific knowledge to industry and to the market.
In this framework, UV-Marking project consortium participated in the congress as a good example of collaboration between well-known scientific and industrial partners with a common objective focused on market demands.

UV-Marking consortium took part in Session – UV-Laser Processing (Topic: C Synthesis and Processing). Mentioned session was composed by the following lectures:

• Laser, Plasmas and Hybrid Nano-Technologies for Surface Processing. UV-Laser Processing. (A.F. Lasagni, Fraunhofer Institut für Werkstoff- und Strahltechnik, Dresden (Germany))
• Lasers for Customization at Industrial Level through High Quality Marking on Different Materials. (A. Escartin (Sp), V. Gotor, F.J. Ester, BSH Home Appliances Spain, Zaragoza (Spain))
• UV Laser Aesthetic Marking on White Polymer Materials. (A. Söver (Sp), WIRTHWEIN AG, Creglingen (Germany); A. Escartin, BSH Electrodomesticos Espana, Zaragoza (Spain); P. Genter, ROFIN-SINAR LAser GmbH, Bergkirchen et al.)
• UV Laser for Micro- and Marking Applications (P. Genter (Sp), H. Diehl, S. Höfer, N. Kugler, U. Lehmann, A. Reiser, S. Riecke, D. Seitz, ROFIN-SINAR Laser GmbH, Bergkirchen; A. Escartin, BSH Electrodomesticos Espana, Zaragoza (Spain) et al.)
• High Speed Surface Patterning of DLC for Advanced Tribology and a Production Concept Design. (T. Roch (Sp), M. Beda, A.F. Lasagni, Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology, Dresden (Germany))

The attendance to the congress was described as very successful by the UV-Marking consortium. The session has represented an excellent opportunity to:

- Offer academic sector a new view of industrial necessities and how collaboration is the solution to assure this approach.
- Exchange knowledge with other researchers specialized in this topics, who were very interested in the progress of the new laser.
- Establish new contacts and collaborative relations.

UV-MARKING - Development of new UV laser for customization at industrial level through high quality marking on different materials

This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 314630.
