The HALO project is being delivered by the following group of collaborating consortium partners:
|Gooch and Housego (Torquay): (Coordinator) will develop active and passive components for adjustable beam lasers, such as fused fibre combiners and acousto-optic modulators.
|ORC Southampton: will work on a novel design of fibre laser pumped two micron solid state laser with a directly adaptable output beam profile.
|Trumpf Werkzeugmaschinen: will improve the sheet steel cutting process using extra-cavity beam convertors.
|Trumpf Laser: will explore the use of spatial and temporal beam shaping to process brittle materials such as glass and ceramics.
|Synova: will develop the use of adaptable beams in its proprietary water jet-guided laser cutting technology.
|Fraunhofer ILT: will advance theoretical and practical optimisation of adaptable laser beams for improved cutting of a range of materials.
|Laser Expertise: will benchmark existing cutting technology and quantitatively assess the advances made in the HALO project.
|Lulea University: will model laser cutting with adaptable beams and validate the model predictions against experiment.
|Vivid Components: will provide administrative support and coordinate dissemination activity in the project.
HALO is supported by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7)
