Lasers in Manufacturing 2021

LiM – Lasers in Manufacturing is the perfect platform for efficient knowledge transfer in the field of lasers and their applications. The LiM is organised by the German Scientific Laser Society (WLT).

LiM is devoted to scientific presentations on the latest research results. Following the common code of good scientific practice, the presentations shall be complete, comprehensible, and verifiable. All contributions for the LiM will undergo a review process by the Scientific Committee.

EPIC Online Technology Meeting: Growing Needs for Ultrafast, High Power Laser Applications

Applications of ultrafast, high-power lasers can be found in different fields, such as micromaterial processing and surface texturing. In this meeting, the needs of the system integrators towards the supply chain concerning new optics and mechanics for beam transport, laser sources and monitoring systems to obtain high-throughput will be presented and innovative applications fields of the technology will be discussed.
