Dear Member of the Swissphotonics family

We are pleased to announce and invite you to our weekly online zoom events.

SNAP - Swiss National Application lab for Photonics

SNAP offers consulting services and recommends the best suitable institute, the best approach and drives its implementation. The involved institutes then give the SME assistance for CTI projects if technology development is needed to solve the problem. SNAP is the prime test bed for advanced Swiss laser beam source developing companies and it promotes photonic tools and photonic manufacturing.

Laser beam material processing covers
  • Laser micromachining and drilling of almost any material, i.e. metals, textiles, tissue, ceramics, glass, plastic and carbon composites
  • Functional structures on surfaces
  • Laser welding, soldering and brazing
  • 3D-Laser surface treatment of many materials (polishing, hardening, structuring, marking, engraving,)
  • Rapid manufacturing, 3D printing
