From April 27 to 29, 2016 the laser community is meeting at the International Laser Technology Congress AKL’16 for the eleventh time in Aachen. For every target group – be it laser manufacturers, users or beginners – around 80 lecturers will be bringing together innovative applications from the industry and latest research results from science. Furthermore, attendees have the chance to experience Laser Technology Live at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT.
Register now for the AKL´16 at www.lasercongress.org and take advantage of an early-bird discount for registrations up to March 14, 2016.
Over 600 participants from Germany and abroad are expected at the eleventh International Laser Technology Congress AKL’16 in the Eurogress in Aachen, Germany. In three parallel sessions the proven main program of the technological conference will encompass the latest laser manufacturing processes for micro and macro applications – from cutting and welding via micro-joining and laser material deposition all the way to polishing and thin film processes – as well as innovative developments in the field of laser beam sources.

The technological conference will be accompanied by a sponsors´ exhibition comprising over 50 renowned companies in laser technology. In individual conversations participants have the opportunity to inform themselves on innovative products and processes in laser technology as well as to establish contacts or deepen existing contacts.
During the Seminar Laser Technology ABC’s on April 27, experts provide a structured and practice-oriented overview for companies with little experience in the area of laser technology. On the Technology Business Day on April 27, 2016, managing directors, marketing managers as well as sales directors will obtain useful information of the laser markets worldwide and sector-specific insight for the use of laser technology in the manufacturing industry.
Additionally, on the first conference day, you can get a comprehensive overview on the state of the art and current developments in two separate forums, as well as contacts to designated experts, if you would like to delve deeper into Process Control or Laser Additive Manufacturing.
Experience Laser Technology Live in Europe´s Largest Laser Application Center!
At the event “Laser Technology Live” participants of the AKL’16 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.
But not only from the scientific point of view does “Laser Technology Live” provide valuable impulses. Among others, companies will learn from the managing directors of the Aachen Center for Additive Manufacturing ACAM how to profitably establish additive manufacturing technologies into their production processes. Christian Hinke, managing director of the funding initiative “Research Campus Digital Photonic Production”, will inform interested parties about medium to long term cooperation possibilities in the “Innovation Center Digital Photonic Production”.
Opening of the ”Innovation Center Digital Photonic Production”
In the evening on April 28, 2016, the Fraunhofer ILT invites the participants of the AKL ´16 to the opening of the “Innovation Center DPP”. As the first building of the Photonics Cluster near the Fraunhofer ILT, the “Innovation Center DPP” is part of the emerging campus of the RWTH Aachen University, one of Europe´s biggest technological oriented research landscapes. Here, scientists work, among other subjects, on projects of the “Research Campus DPP”, funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF), in which scientists investigate new methods and fundamental physical effects regarding the use of light as an instrument in future industrial production.
The International Laser Technology Congress AKL’16 is organized 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, the Innovation Networks for Optical Technologies OptecNet Germany as well as the industry associations SPECTARIS, VDA, VDMA and VDI all assist the forum as supporting organizations.

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.
Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
