SHARK is working to increase the industrial uptake of laser functional texturing
We are reducing the complexity and unknowns in the functional texturing process by developing a fully digitised knowledge management platform and an advanced end-user interface to enable industrialisation of the process.
The project will deliver:
- Cost savings: The capability to deliver surface functionalities into real products for less than 10% of the cost of the conventional part.
- Improved product performance: More than 20% improvement in product performance based on the surface functionalities deployed
- Faster product development
- A strengthened global position for European manufacturing
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for research and innovation under grant agreement no 768701
SHARK aims to industrialise laser functional texturing by boosting the productivity, cost effectiveness and flexibility of the process…
