EALA - European Automotive Laser Applications 2018

06 February 2018 to 07 February 2018
Bad Nauheim, Germany

The EALA is the international information and experience exchange for laser production technologies in automobile construction: in 2018 the world's leading network of car engineers will be meeting in Bad Nauheim. Recognised experts will be taking an intensive look at many and diverse subjects revolving around the use of lasers in car manufacturing, for example the laser manufacturing process, quality strategies and current rules and regulations.

The EALA will showcase the key drivers of future-proof laser machining in car body building and help define the fundamental aspects in the configuration of more effective, economically viable and high quality processes. You, too, can take a proactive part in the discussions of today's state-of-the-art and the future challenges facing laser material processing.
