The Laser Centre is a knowledge transfer centre set up by the Laser group at the University of Liverpool. Its brief is to help companies take up or improve laser processes in manufacturing, and is the only open access centre of its type in the UK.

We can assist in a range of processes, from established processes such as laser cutting, marking and welding, to emerging processes such as cladding, metal deposition, other surface treatments and cleaning. We can also access processes still being developed within the University's research group e.g. laser forming (bending).

If you need help with laser processes, training, or want to develop products or processes employing laser techniques directly, or in their manufacture, please contact us.
