Laser-based Equipment Assessments LEA's

LASHARE conducts Laser-based Equipment Assessments (LEAs) addressing a broad range of applications. All of them involve a supplier, an industrial user and a research partner to take a demonstrated piece of equipment to a new level of technology readiness.

Since 2016, 14 new LEAs focus on the integration of ICT in laser-based manufacturing equipment and the connection to external infrastructure. They build upon a set of 14 LEAs that finished in 2016 and proved the support of equipment assessment to accelerated advance in technology readiness.
