This year's LaserForum, organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, will take place under the title "3D Production of Precision Components" on October 12, 2018 at the Chair for Laser Application Technology (LAT) of the Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany.
The annual meeting of laser technology experts focuses on 3D materials processing, 3D printing and 3D structuring.
Furthermore, design and reworking, cost-effectiveness as well as production of components with hybrid methods will be discussed.
An institute tour with the host LAT completes the program.
The event series LaserForum regularly and comprehensively addresses selected questions, problems and trends in the application of laser technology along the entire value chain.
The Forum offers a platform for discussion and exchange of ideas among experts. It is aimed at developers, manufacturers and users of laser technology. The conference takes place in German.
The event is organized by the IVAM Microtechnology Network together with the renowned partners Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. and the Chair for Laser Application Technology (LAT) of the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB).
The program and the possibility to register are available at https://www.ivam.de/events/LaserForum2018.

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
