For every target group – be it laser manufacturers, users or beginners – around 60 lecturers will be bringing together innovative applications from the industry and latest research results from science. Furthermore, at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, participants can experience laser technology live.
Over 600 participants from Germany and abroad are expected at the tenth International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 in the Eurogress in Aachen. In three parallel sessions the proven main program of the AKL will encompass the latest laser manufacturing processes for the micro and macro applications – from cutting and welding via micro-joining and process control all the way to polishing and thin film processes – as well as innovative developments in the field of laser beam sources.
Two of the most important topics are Digital Photonic Production and ultrashort pulse lasers. For instance, the pioneer users in 3D printing processes will report on their first experiences using these technologies– for the manufacture of complex metallic components in small lot sizes. Among the speakers count experts from GE, EOS, Festo, BMW, MTU Aero Engines and Fraunhofer ILT. In the field of laser beam sources, short and ultrashort pulse lasers are becoming more and more important. Therefore, experts from the companies TRUMPF, Rofin-Sinar, Coherent, Manz, EdgeWave and AMPHOS will be presenting the newest industrial developments in beam sources and their applications.
In this case, the participants will receive valuable inspiration on the economic use of laser technology in the automobile or aviation industry, electrical engineering or energy management, in micro technology or in mechanical engineering. For example, on May 7 the EU Innovation Forum “Laser Additive Manufacturing in Aeronautics” will be offering experts from the aviation industry and energy branch the opportunity to systematically exchange information, especially in the field of laser additive manufacturing.
Accompanying Sponsors’ Exhibition
The technological conference will be accompanied by a sponsors‘ exhibition from 46 well-known companies in the laser industry. In individual talks, participants will have the chance to catch up on innovative products and processes in the field of laser technology and to make new contacts to deepen existing ones.
Experiencing Laser Technology Live
At the event “Laser Technology Live”, participants of the AKL’14 will be able to exchange ideas intensively on the latest technological developments thanks to around 70 live presentations in the Application Center of the Fraunhofer ILT.
Innovation Award Laser Technology 2014
Within the scope of the AKL’14, the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V. and the European Laser Institute ELI will be awarding the “Innovation Award Laser Technology”, valued at €10,000, on May 7, 2014 for excellent innovations in the development and application of lasers in production engineering.
The International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 is hosted by the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT. The European Commission, the European Photonics Industry Consortium EPIC, the Arbeitskreis Lasertechnik e.V., the European Laser Institute ELI as well as the industry associations SPECTARIS, VDA, VDMA and VDI all support the forum.
Interested parties can register for the AKL’14 at www.lasercongress.org and take advantage of an early-bird discount for registrations up to March 21, 2014.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
