EPIC Executive Meeting on Industrial Lasers will focus on a discussion between suppliers and users the latest advances in laser-enabled high precision industrial manufacturing processes.

The broad range of applications will cover heavy manufacturing (profile cutting in sheet and plate metals, welding, drilling,…), light micromachining (profile cutting in plastics and wood, CVD diamond cutting, ceramic and glass micromachining, engraving, marking…), manufacturing of electronics (high quality wire stripping, IC repair, …), and more.

The technology capabilities of lasers manufacturers and their full value chain will be showcased and leveraged against the market driven demands. Different types of lasers will be presented by leading manufacturers: CO2 and CO, solid state, excimer lasers, diode and fiber lasers, short pulse, ion lasers, structured light lasers, tunable lasers,… as well as the components needed for the laser system assembly (ultrafast amplifiers, oscillators , beam shutters, …) and techniques such as beam guiding or focusing.
