Photons in Production, Hall B3

Experience the special exhibition "Photons in Production", which is being designed in collaboration with the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb) at the Technical University of Munich, the Bavarian Laser Center Erlangen (blz), and the Chair of Photonic Technologies at Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg.

With over 400 square meters of exhibition space, you will gain comprehensive insights into current trends and research results in the field of laser material processing.

As a special highlight, two live demos are waiting for you. The process monitoring during beam shaping using ring mode lasers and a networked laser material processing system with inline quality assurance using artificial intelligence will be presented.

Other topics include:

  • Applications for laser beam welding, cutting and drilling in electromobility

  • High-speed speckle averaging for phase-pure beam shaping in laser material processing

  • Innovative processes and applications for laser-based additive manufacturing
  • Artificial intelligence for process monitoring

  • Additive manufacturing for pharmaceutical products

  • Hyperspectral imaging for temperature determination in laser material processing

  • Laser safety

This year, the special exhibition booth will also offer a Solution Center, where you can receive independent and free advice from scientists.

The automatica trade fair is also taking place at the same time as LASER World of PHOTONICS. Due to the close link between the two fields of laser material processing and automation, the cross-fair "Solutions Pitches" will be held for the first time this year. Two exhibitors from both fairs will each present a successful and industry-ready "showcase" for solving a production-related challenge. The 30-minute events will be held in English and are free of charge. Dates and contents can also be found in the program information.
