Workshop at Laser 2019 "EPIC Workshop - Shaping, Analyzing and Monitoring the Laser Beam in Material Processing Applications"
EPIC Workshop "Shaping, Analyzing and Monitoring the Laser Beam in Material Processing Applications" on Tuesday 25th June 2019, 09:30-12:45, in Conference Room B22 at Messe München during LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019
"EPIC Workshop - Shaping, Analyzing and Monitoring the Laser Beam in Material Processing Applications" hosted by AMS Technologies
Lasers are the tool of choice for many demanding tasks in material processing. But how to create the optimum beam profile? How can the quality of the laser beam and the processing result be analyzed or even continuously monitored during the process? What technologies are available on the market and are they suitable for my requirements? And what experiences have other users already had?

All these topics will be adressed at the "EPIC Workshop - Shaping, Analyzing and Monitoring the Laser Beam in Material Processing Applications" during LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019 in Munich, Germany, hosted by AMS Technologies. On Tuesday, 25th June 2019, seven technical experts from five different countries will provide the participants with all relevant facts and trends concerning the laser beam in material processing, present current technologies and share the experiences made with their application.

Topics: OCT in laser welding, 3D beam shaping, laser-based battery assembly, reflective DOEs, online beam monitoring, controlling LAM melt pool geometry
In his opening keynote, Alexander Denkl, Head of Application Engineering at Lessmueller Lasertechnik, will introduce Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) as a tool for beam tracking, penetration depth measurement and seam monitoring from a user's point of view. Dr. Malte Kumkar, TRUMPF Laser Application Center, will then demonstrate the potential of three-dimensional beam shaping for new and improved material processing. Artificial intelligence for real-time quality analysis of welding processes with a hybrid laser source in battery production is the subject of a joint presentation by Maurizio Gattiglio, Chairman of Convergent Photonics and Giovanni di Stefano, Head of Materials and Process Technology, Comau.

Dr. Shogo Yagi, Senior Expert Engineer at NTT Advanced Technology, will introduce water-cooled, reflective Diffractive Optical Elements that can be used to change a laser beam’s intensity profile and focal depth. A system that allows the measurement and continuous control of size, position and power of a high-power laser beam directly at the workpiece will be presented by Oren Aharon, CTO of Duma Optronics. At the end of the workshop, Rodrigo Linares, Business Development Manager at NIT New Infrared Technologies, will show how an inline infrared camera can be used to measure the melt pool geometry at high speed and control it in a closed loop.

Technical experts will be present for discussions during a light lunch provided after the presentations.
Registration fee is 70,00€ (excl. VAT). For EPIC members or customers invited by AMS Technologies a discounted fee of 50,00€ (excl. VAT) applies. The fee includes a complimentary entry ticket enabling free entrance to the show “LASER World of PHOTONICS” on the 25th June 2019 as well as a light lunch after the workshop. Each registered attendee will receive a voucher code for purchases in the AMS Technologies portal worth €30.
