Combined Conference Laser Symposium and ISAM Unites Science and Industry in Dresden at the End of November

Focus on Added Industrial Value through Light

Press release (No. 09) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden /

Light embodies far more than just color and brightness. Strongly focused, the light may serve as a powerful tool. Technically, this capability has been exploited for over 60 years with the help of lasers, which are now available in a wide variety of power classes ranging from a few milliwatts to well over 40 kilowatts. In high-precision metrology, as a non-contact, wear-free tool for cutting, joining, coating, surface structuring and heat treatment, and for Additive Manufacturing: The combined Laser Symposium and International Symposium on Additive Manufacturing (ISAM) conference in Dresden from November 29 to December 1, 2023, will show how lasers contribute significantly to added industrial value today and in the future. Artificial intelligence is helping to further push the boundaries of laser-based processes.
