Special Symposium

The 2018 Europhoton Conference includes a Special Symposium entitled Materials processing: Emerging opportunities and requirements.
Participants who have paid the conference fee will receive free entrance to the half day Special Symposium which includes Invited Speakers.


List of Invited Speakers for the Special Symposium


THURSDAY - Session ThM1: Special Symposium 1 from 08:15 to 09:30


Time: 09:00 - 09:30

Prof. Christian Hinke, RWTH Aachen, Germany
Digital Photonic Production as a key enabling technology for Industry 4.0

Digital Photonic Production summarises the integration of laser manufacturing technology in digital production chains and is characterised by a fundamentally different relation of cost, lot size and product complexity compared to conventional production. The talk will discuss the economic potential of that approach and in parallel highlight new requirements to actual and future laser based manufacturing processes.

THURSDAY: Session ThM2: Special Symposium 2 from 11:00 to 12:30


Time: 11:00 - 11:30

Dr. Berthold Schmidt, CTO, TRUMPF Laser Technology GmbH
"Laser applications in the field of e-mobility"

Advanced applications in the world of e-mobility are important drivers for the               optimization of TRUMPF’s laser systems. The latter allow e.g. defect-free and                hermetic sealings, spatter-free welding of copper and of dissimilar materials.                 Combined with progressive sensor technologies and I4.0 readiness these laser                 systems yield perfect solutions for the next generation of industrial manufacturing. 
WilliamsTime: 11:30 - 12:00
Prof. Stewart Williams, Cranfield University, College Road, Cranfield, Bedfordshire, U.K.
"Importance of Laser Parameter Control in Laser Material Processing"
Laser are a perfect energy source in material processing due to their capability for being controlled, both spatially and temporally. The usefulness of this controllability will be illustrated in new applications in both additive manufacture and welding. The importance of in stability of the laser parameters will be highlighted.
