Trending Hot Topic of Ultrafast Lasers Will Be Explored by LME 2013 Keynote Speaker Magnus Bengtsson
Date:8/29/2013

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 29, 2013

The increasing availability of industrial-grade ultrafast lasers and their utility in machining will be the focus of a keynote address by Magnus Bengtsson at the Laser Institute of America’s third annual Lasers for Manufacturing Event® (LME®) Sept. 11-12 at the Schaumburg (IL) Convention Center.

Bengtsson, director of strategic marketing at Coherent, will discuss the best sources for these devices, examples of their application and future opportunities for the use of these tools in his presentation Ultrafast Lasers — Are We There Yet?

“People typically choose ultrafast lasers to enable a new process or because the requirements of the old process have become tougher to meet,” he explains. “There are also cases, e.g., glass cutting, where ultrafast lasers can enable higher throughput and better quality than longer-pulsed lasers. Ultrafast lasers have great potential, but it does not mean they are the solution to every problem. Quality, throughput and cost of ownership must all be balanced for each application.”

While nano, pico and femtosecond lasers have gotten the most attention for uses ranging from manufacturing to medical, strides are being made with attosecond devices. So far, their applicability is centered on research. “At the moment we see attosecond lasers as a fascinating tool for fundamental science,” he says. “They can help us study and understand phenomena in physics and chemistry.”

Bengtsson states that LME fills a vital role as US manufacturers seek an edge by employing lasers to increase efficiency and profitability.

“We need an event like this in the US to broaden the appeal and the conversation beyond the laser industry itself and talk to a wider audience,” he asserts. “We need to learn what challenges other industries face and see if we can help them come up with innovative solutions to support future manufacturing.”

“[LME] is aimed at manufacturers who understand that they need to use lasers to upgrade their processes to ensure that they remain competitive in today’s economy,” says LIA Executive Director Peter Baker. The exhibit space is a unique collection of laser providers, system integrators and industry experts sharing real-world experiences and up-to-the-minute information with the goal of employing lasers profitably in big-ticket industries like aerospace, automotive, defense, energy and health care.

Bengtsson’s address will be one of four 30-minute keynotes in the highly popular and convenient Laser Technology Showcase Theater in the exhibit area of LME 2013. Other industry luminaries will update attendees on ultra-high brightness direct diode lasers, additive manufacturing and 3D printing, and the market for industrial lasers. The education track will also feature basic courses addressing the main types of lasers used for manufacturing, design and economic considerations when putting together a system for your applications, and laser safety.
