Short Course: Introduction to Laser Material Processing

This short course will give an overview on the basics in laser material processing.
Starting with physical basics regarding:

  • forming of high power laser beams
  • energy conservation and laser material processing

 within the short course different processes as:

  • surface treatment and modification
  • cutting and drilling with laser beams
  • laser beam welding
  • additive manufacturing using laser beams

will be presented and discussed with respect to industrial applications.

The short course is oriented to different questions, like

  • Which are the process relevant parameters in laser material processing?
  • Which lasers are useful in different processes and applications?
  • What are the decisive factors in applying laser beams in real production?
  • Are there new trends in laser material processing?


09.00 - 10.30  Physical Basics
                        Laser Material Processes and
                        Applications I

10.30 – 10.45 Break “Coffee and Discussion”

10.45 – 12.00 Laser Material Processes and
                        Applications II
                        Final Discussions

In detail the programme will be oriented to the requirements of the audience. Therefore it will be flexible in content and timing and it will be open for continuous questions and discussions.

Day tickets to the LASER World of Photonics are included in the price.


The short course is addressed to potential users of laser material processes in industrial production and to persons responsible for innovation and new developments in industrial companies.
