Laser equipment ASsessment for High impAct innovation in the manufactuRing European industry (LASHARE)
Date du début: 1 sept. 2013, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

LASHARE will develop a robust assessment framework for innovative laser equipment paving the way for new manufacturing applications. It will carry out a large number of assessment experiments for a variety of laser equipment targeting strategic manufacturing areas for Europe.The Laser Equipment Assessment (LEA) will be carried out by a trio of research/supplier/user partners. Each LEA will define requirements and metrics for development / improvement and perform validation in a production like environment. The LEAs will aid innovative laser equipment and new processes/applications to get into the market by accelerating the transition from lab-proven or prototype to real manufacturing applications. The LEAs will also facilitate the transferability of technology to additional applications and markets and will be based on an established metric for the evaluation of Technology Readiness Levels.LASHARE brings together the know-how and resources of 6 of the EU's most renowned laser research centres along with equipment suppliers and industrial users. 14 LEAs are included at project start and 8-12 additional LEAs added through a competitive call. LASHARE will focus on SMEs enabling them to create new products to benefit European industry. In total, more than 30 SME partners will benefit from FP7-FOF support, expertise from research centres, and the direct collaboration with industrial users that will create trust and thrust for adoption.Competence Centres will be key for dissemination of information and best practices, promoting use of laser equipment and expansion of results to other application sectors. They will provide advice, support and training targeting SME and industry suppliers and users.The benefit of LASHARE will be• accelerated introduction of innovative European laser equipment in strategic manufacturing lines• strengthened competitive position of European SME laser suppliers (new markets), and industrial users (increased manufacturing efficiency)
