Adaptable filtration system developed for laser processing

The technology could also be used for additive manufacturing in the future

Laser Safety Forum

Annual meetings of the Laser Safety Forum are held every September. This year the event will be a hybrid meeting, allowing participants to attend online or join in person at Burleigh Court in Loughborough.

The Laser Safety Forum was founded in 1996 to provide a means of bringing former laser safety course participants back together so that they could share their experiences, receive an update on topical laser safety issues and to provide a further level of post-course support.
