More than 400 visitors attended the Lasers in Action forum during Lasys in Stuttgart, which ran from 24-26 June. A total of 40 talks took place over the three days of the trade fair, ranging in topic from micromachining to diode laser technology. Robotics and automation and laser additive manufacturing were also covered in depth.

The forum also featured an executive panel discussion on the future of laser systems, where micromachining with ultrafast lasers was highlighted as one area expected to grow in the future.

The panel comprised of Georg Hofner, CEO of Scanlab, Dr Mario Ledig, VP of Jenoptik Laser, Wolfgang Schulz, head of the modelling and simulation department at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology, and Toni Koszykowski, CEO of Laser SOS. The discussion was moderated by Warren Clark, Laser Systems Europe’s publishing director.
