"CONSORZIO per la ricerca e lo sviluppo delle Applicazioni industriali del Laser E del Fascio elettronico e dell'ingegneria di processo, materiali, metodi e tecnologie di produzione"
The research activities of CALEF are oriented primarily, as defined in the statute, to the industrial application of laser and electron beam technology. Over the years the activities were extended to the more general field of advanced materials and engineerIng. processes and methods of industrial production with application purposes in the field of transport. The activities are conducted at the laboratories of all the members of the Consortium, where equipment and instrumentation are usable, as described in the web sites of the members.
CALEF has as operative reference the "Laboratory Laser" in ENEA Research Center Trisaia, with a technological hall of about 540 square meters, equipped with a 5-ton bridge crane, with four laser sources and 4 workstations, a metallography laboratory and annex machine laboratory. The Consortium can use the Electronic Beam plant in CR-Casaccia ENEA. The staff is made available by the members themselves.
