Research & Development - Facts, figures, data

Our development center really does live up to its reputation as the “spearhead of the company. Under the stewardship of Dr. Florian Bechmann, around 60 employees and 15 students are currently working in the Concept Academy on Concept Lasers future and on advancing the powder-based laser melting of metals.


A look at the figures for the development center gives an indication of the performance and impetus that inspires our whole company: For example, the size of the compressed CAD database rose from 56 GB (end of 2014) to 201 GB (end of 2015), which equates to roughly 1.5 TB. At the end of 2015, this corresponded to a total of 8,198,680 documents (such as 3D data records, drawings and technical documents). Whereas in 2013 the number of examination reports for development and quality assurance was 159, by 2015 there were already 790. The number of samples examined in the laboratory was 1,000 in 2013. In 2015, there were 7,400 laboratory samples. We thank the R&D team for displaying so much dedication and diligence.
