Laser ablation and cleaning is a technology serving different applications, such as welding pre- and post-treatments, coating removal, decontamination, restoration and surface preparation to maximize paint adhesion, which faces challenges when throughput has to be high and the surface to be treated are large.We will discuss with the full supply chain of laser manufacturers, optics suppliers, robotics systems, system integrators and a few end-users how it is possible to collaborate for the advancement of the technology.

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.
