ighlights and innovations in the field of industrial laser-based manufacturing will bring together experts and users at the tenth Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum (SLT) from 5th until 6th June 2018. The SLT is organized by the IFSW and takes place in conjunction with the International Trade Fair for Laser Material Processing (LASYS) at the Trade Fair Centre Stuttgart (Airport).

The Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum which takes place on a biannual cycle is aimed at knowledge transfer and is recognized as an essential international user forum of the laser branch. The presentations will be held in English and German, with simultaneous translation for the German and English talks.

As in the past the core topics of the SLT 2018 covered the complete range from micro- to macro-processing together with the required laser sources and beam delivery systems. In addition to the latest developments on the common processes (cutting, welding, drilling, structuring etc.) the conference particularly highlights current trends such as additive manufacturing or the system technology required to scale the productivity in micro materials processing. Correspondingly, the latest results in the fields of ultrafast lasers, beam delivery, ultrafast scanners, and beam shaping will also be presented. 

The talks given by international experts from research and development provide a profound overview over the actual trends in laser technology. In particular, the SLT provides an insight in the corresponding fundamentals with respect to future applications. This will be complemented by presentations from the industries which document the actual state of innovation transfer.

The relaxed time-table together with the agreeable venue provides the perfect frame for successful networking. An evening event following the first day provides more opportunities for exchange with a visit to the laboratory directly at IFSW.

We look forward seeing you at the SLT 2018!

Prof. Dr. Thomas Graf, Head of the IFSW
Dr. Rudolf Weber, Head of Process Development at the IFSW
Dr. Marwan Abdou Ahmed, Head of Laser Development and Laser Optics at the IFSW
