Lasers in Industrial Processing

  • Sector: Laser Processing
  • Location: OpTIC St Asaph Business Park
  • Attendees: All Welcome

The TSB is launching a funding call worth £1M related to advanced manufacturing and industrial processing using lasers. The call will have two strands:

1. Application of laser technologies in manufacturing
2. Laser Sources for industrial processing

The TSB will seek proposals for collaborative pre industrial feasibility studies with a maxim total project value of £175K with a maximum funding of 75% for SME’s.

This networking event will inform participants about the call and stimulate ideas about the use of lasers in manufacturing and aims to encourage the uptake of laser use in the manufacturing and materials communities, something the UK is lacking behind its major competitors from the US and Germany. For that reason, all events will include a guided tour of facilities that can show lasers in action on manufacturing and processing of materials. There will also be a keynote speaker talking about how lasers are being used in the production environment and what benefits they have brought. Finally the event will give ample opportunity to network and meet new people across a diverse community.
