Laser technology is applicable for a large number of industrial processes.

In many cases, laser technology provides higher processing speed, better quality, and the ability to produce special products that are difficult to manufacture with other processing technologies. These benefits along with the latest developments and future trends in laser technology will be clearly demonstrated at this seminar. The seminar will also give an overview on the subject including inspiration for possible laser applications based on industrial cases and solutions.
This seminar is aimed at the metal and steel industry, especially those working with welding and surface coatings. The overall heavy-metal industry, the wind turbine industry, power plants, shipyards, but also the industries for medical and food equipment and agricultural machinery would benefit from attending this seminar.
