Research & Development
Our R&D research works contribute to :
- The improvement of laser processes
- The emergence of innovative processes
IREPA LASER is involved in many research collaborative programmes in France and in Europe, in partnership with industiral companies and technical centres.
Among our research programmes :
Manufacturing of a new generation of joint prosthesis. This programme supported by the French national research agency ( ANR) aims at developing prosthesis with a new titanium alloy using the process of additive manufacturing CLAD®.
Innovative manufacturing of components for aerospace. The result has shown the capability to produce metallic parts (titanium, steel, ....) in large sizes (Ø 600 mm - h 700 mm) up to 300kg.
Manufacturing of aeronautical structures for aeronautics by laser welding of composite stripes.
Rapid manufacturing of metallic parts of large sizes with waste reduction for use in aerospace, automotive and nuclear sectors.
