  6. Italian SPEM S.R.L presents ADI- Additive DeIcing system for the aerospace industry.
  7. TATION is a project from Spain, brought by Mobility Ion Technologies SL, aiming to assess the implementation of LBAAM processes in the manufacturing of high-resolution ion mobility in analytical instrumentation.
  8. ABSORPTION is an application of LBAAM in, - Laser beam shaping and automatic part recognition for high speed & quality fuel cell production, proposed by Optoprim Germany GmbH from Germany.
  9. LASER RIBLETS is an Austrian project proposed by Bionic surface technologies GmbH as investigations in microstructures for local flow behaviors produced through laser technique.
  10. REALISM- Laser-based manufacturing with eLectrostatic dIScharge Materials is a Portuguese proposal led by Favoritanswer Consultoria Em Engenharia Lda.
  11. MB Proints from Lithuania enters the program with LAMAS - Laser Additive Manufacturing of Aerodynamic Separator.
  12. StreamOwl Private Company from Greece presented QUADLAM, a Quadcopter frame with Laser Additive Manufacturing.
  13. Weffan Ltd from the UK introduces a project connected with the textile industry - Loom-State: 3D Woven Garments.
  14. LADACOR is a proposal from Serbia by DOO Relja Junior Zrenjanin: Laser cleaning, drilling, and cutting for improvement of market position and business model of Relja company.
  15. LEAN - Lightweight End of arm tooling made using laser-based Additive manufacturing is presented by Tricon Automation Ireland Ltd.
  16. LF4 - Laser plastic welding is brought by EUROMODEL ENGINEERING SRL, from Italy.
  17. Beagle Optics, UAB from Lithuania won their place in the program with LABOR - Laser-based engraving of optical reticles.
  18. MICRORELLEUS from Spain presented Injected MLA manufacturing using femtosecond laser for engraving mold and mask.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Open Call
What is next?

PULSATE Support Program for Adopters Use Cases will start in September 2022 and last for 3 months.

During the program, selected projects will receive:

  • Up to 25 000 EUR of funding
  • Mentorship from PULSATE Consortium partners in conducting an assessment to confirm the technical and business feasibility of implementing laser-based technology in an Adopter-specific environment


As part of the drive to promote jobs and growth in the European photonics industry, PULSATE was set up in 2020 with a grant of €7.9 million under the EU's Horizon 2020 program as a four-year project to promote and facilitate the adoption of LBAAM technologies. Details about PULSATE can be found on their Website and Community.

Laser-based advanced and additive manufacturing technologies play an important role in furthering digital production and offer important advantages to the companies that adopt them. However, barriers such as high investment costs, complex technology, and system integration, and lack of awareness hinder their adoption by SMEs. PULSATE aims to mitigate these barriers by creating a Europe-wide network to enable and encourage SMEs to participate in LBAAM innovation and become more globally competitive.
