Workshop: APPOLO

Mittwoch/Wednesday, 04.11.2015, BFH Burgdorf

High Throughput and High Precision Laser Micro Machining with Ultra Short Pulses APPOLO

stands for Hub of Application Laboratories for Equipment Assessment in Laser Based Manufacturing. The APPOLO project seeks to establish and coordinate connections between the end-users, which have demand on laser technologies for (micro)fabrication, knowledge accumulated in the application laboratories of research institutes and universities and the laser equipment manufacturers (preferable SMEs: for integration, lasers, beam control and guiding, software, etc.) in order to facilitate faster validation of the process feasibility and adaptation or customization of the technology (equipment) for manufacturing conditions, including reliability of components and their interaction as well as assessment of the dedicated production processes in terms of the process speed, quality and repeatability.

The actual APPOLO workshop on high throughput and high precision laser micro machining with ultrashort pulses follows this idea and brings together researchers, laser and laser equipment manufacturers as well as integrators and end users. Speakers from APPOLO partners as well as from other companies and research institutes will present and discuss actual demands, physical basics, principal limits and new innovative solutions. The goal of the workshop is to give you an overview about the actual trends and developments in laser systems and equipment for micro machining with ultra-short pulses to encourage the development of new ideas for industrial applications.
