EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Advanced and Additive Metal Manufacturing

19 October 2020

15:00 – 17:00 CEST


Sponsored by



Laser-based technologies have a great potential in industrial manufacturing that has not been fully exploited, yet. Let’s discuss with laser and optics manufacturers, robotics and automation experts, Industry 4.0 software developers and companies using laser processes for their current or future manufacturing lines.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you”creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships
