Laser World of Photonics: focus on lasers in manufacturing

Laser World of Photonics from June 24 to 27, 2019 in Munich will be comprehensively showcasing the dynamics driving the development of modern laser production processes. The focus is on innovations by some 350 leading exhibitors, especially lasers and laser systems in manufacturing.

The focus is on innovations by leading manufacturers, especially lasers and laser systems in manufacturing.
Support program features such as the application panels will discuss the future of lasers in microelectronics and electro-mobility, as well as progress on Photonics 4.0. And, as a bonus, the four-day LiM 2019—Lasers in Manufacturing at the World of Photonics Congress affords the opportunity for more in-depth consideration.

Nowadays, industrial processes move at the speed of light: shipbuilding yards use lasers to cut and weld enormous steel structures for freighters and cruise ships. The weightless and contactless tool that is light is as widespread in the automotive, aeronautical and mechanical engineering sectors as it is among manufacturers in the plastics, glass and electronics industries. Because lasers in sensor-monitored processes are precision-controllable, don’t wear out and have the added advantage of machining at the speed of light.

The range of industrial laser applications is constantly expanding. They cut, perforate, weld, solder, texture, harden or mark and code. The expert panel on Photonics 4.0 instigated by SPECTARIS in the wings of Laser World of Photonics provides more in-depth information (June 27, 2019, 10:00 to 12:20 in the Photonics Forum in Hall A3).

Laser systems also ensure flexible production. This is becoming a central requirement, especially in the transition to electro-mobility. Initially, internal combustion engine and electric-drive vehicles will share the same production lines. Photonics is considered to be a key technology for electro-mobility—in the complex manufacturing processes for high voltage batteries, electric motors and power electronics and in lightweight construction alike. Details will be provided by the Application Panel “No laser technology, no electro-mobility” (Tuesday, June 25, 2019, 15:00 to 17:20).

The next day of the trade fair will again commence with a discussion on a future field of activity in which lasers play a key role: “Smart Production of Metallic Parts by Additive Manufacturing” (Wednesday, June 26, 10:00 to 12:20) is based on lasers making components out of metal alloys in powder form and plastics. Without tools—and with previously unimaginable design freedom.
