Applications of ultrafast, high-power lasers can be found in different fields, such as micromaterial processing and surface texturing. In this meeting, the needs of the system integrators towards the supply chain concerning new optics and mechanics for beam transport, laser sources and monitoring systems to obtain high-throughput will be presented and innovative applications fields of the technology will be discussed.

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.
