Chair: Tom Chaffer, TRUMPF
Lasers enable a wide array of material processing applications, such as cutting, drilling, welding, surface structuring in metals, plastics, ceramics, glass, and almost any other material used in industry. The capability and capital cost of a laser sources has a significant impact on the overall competitiveness of a manufacturing solution.
Lasers for manufacturing also require innovative and efficient beam delivery. Over the past decades, the use of fiber optic beam delivery, optical assemblies, and scanning heads have all contributed to achieving greater throughput, easier integration, higher reliability, and greater efficiency.
Presenters will cover recent developments in industrial laser sources as well as current advances in beam delivery, shaping, and control, making this workshop of interest to laser manufacturers, beam delivery manufacturers, system integrators, and end users of laser material processing, as well as researchers in this field.
Delegates will be able to tour the facilities at the end of the workshop.
