The Bierwisch team at the Fraunhofer IWM has developed a small tool for quick simulation. We would like to make this tool available to you. There are actually two tools involved:


  1. Process window prediction:

    This tool is aimed at those who use polymers and suggests the optimum laser power for the process.


  1. Rapid simulation:
    This is a slightly more sophisticated tool that actually performs a quick 1D simulation. So you can do your own parameter studies here.

    This tool is also currently aimed exclusively at those working with polymers. We are working on the idea of how we can also use the tools for metals.
