Concept Laser and Lauak sign Letter of Intent for Additive Manufacturing collaboration

June 23, 2017

Concept Laser, a GE Additive company based in Lichtenfels, Germany, and Lauak Group, an aeronautical company based in Ayherre, France, have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to launch an alliance that they state will advance Additive Manufacturing in the aerospace industry.  The agreement was signed at the 2017 Paris Air Show.

Lauak will invest in Concept Laser additive machines as a reference customer for Concept Laser technology.  Also, Concept Laser will work closely with Lauak to implement additive processes and design new products.

“Lauak sees the potential of Additive Manufacturing and I’m delighted they’ve chosen Concept Laser equipment to help the company on its journey,” stated Frank Herzog, CEO of Concept Laser.  “We will support them with equipment, processes, and people to allow them to meet their objectives.”

Concept Laser will support Lauak during the implementation phase of the equipment into its manufacturing process. Lauak will also present the Concept Laser machine to reference customers in its showroom, including the presentation of test objects for demonstration purposes. Concept Laser and Lauak will collaborate to redesign components from the Lauak portfolio.

Mikel Charritton, CEO of Lauak stated, “We see the huge potential in Additive Manufacturing and we want to use this technology to complete and improve our current manufacturing processes, as well as the manufacture of new components for the aviation industry.”
