Laser and EDM micro-machining factory

Laser and EDM micro-machining factory

This laboratory is dedicated to innovation in the field of the non-conventional machining consisting of electrical discharge machining and laser ablation.

For the manufacture of concrete parts, it also uses conventional machining equipment (turning and milling).

The laboratory’s know-how is in the fine understanding of these shaping techniques and the ability to develop new operating procedures.
