International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14: Impulses for the Production Technology of Tomorrow

10.12.2013
Laser users and manufacturers from diverse economic branches will be meeting from May 7 to 9, 2014 at the International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 in Aachen, Germany. Users, manufacturers and developers have used this international platform to intensively exchange ideas on the current status and perspectives of laser technology. The program can now be seen online at www.lasercongress.org.

For the tenth time, around 60 laser experts from research and industry will be informing visitors about the newest processes and beam sources as well as the latest developments and trends in laser technology. Technology suppliers and customers can profit from the exchange of experience.

The organizer, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT anticipates, once again, over 600 participants. Interested parties can now register for the AKL’14 at www.lasercongress.org and receive an early bird discount until March 21, 2014.

Individualized Series Production thanks to »Digital Photonic Production«

Linking the virtual world with that of laser production is opening up new horizons for production technology, which thus enables individualized or particularly complex components to be manufactured under inexpensive conditions. Presentations by companies from the energy, automobile and aviation sectors will show how “Digital Photonic Production” can pave the way for new business models. In addition to the generative processes, ablating and structuring processes will be elucidated by way of examples.

Ultrashort Pulse Laser – Putting Full Power out on the “Street”

USP lasers are increasingly making their way into the industrial environment. In three different sessions at the symposium on May 8 and 9, 2014, under the label “Ultrashort Pulse Laser Essentials,” experts will be informing participants on the foundations of and latest developments in beam sources for high power USP lasers. They will show various applications for micro and macro processing using examples from the manufacturing industry. Moreover, they will present the state-of-the-art of this technology as well as perspectives for processing fiber-reinforced plastics.

Innovation Award Laser Technology 2014

On May 7, 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” for excellent innovations in the development and application of lasers in production technology. The award is endowed with 10,000 Euros. The European research prize is directed at applicants from the European industry as well as European universities or R&D centers. Applications can be submitted until January 17, 2014. For further information, please see www.innovation-award-laser.org.

Supporting Organizations

The International Laser Technology Congress AKL’14 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 as well as the industry associations SPECTARIS, VDA, VDMA and VDI all assist the forum as supporting organizations.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
