"LASER PROCESSING FOR MICRO AND NANO-SCALE MANUFACTURING: TECHNOLOGY AND APPLICATION ADVANCES" in UK

Ecolaserfact, in association with AILU, IOP, SEPNET and the University of Birmingham will organize a workshop on laser processing the 17th September 2014. The event will feature a number of talks on the following topics:

  • High power ultrashort laser processing with innovative optical systems
  • Laser manufacturing - shortening the time to market for micro-products
  • Using lasers for a modern Assay Office
  • Multi-scale characterisation of laser textured surfaces
  • And many other subjects!


Ecolaserfact will participate to "INNOVATIONS FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH: THE UK UPTAKE OF LASER MATERIALS PROCESSING" in UK

In collaboration with the Association of Industrial Laser Users, Mr Stefan Dimov from Ecolaserfact is invited as speaker. He will present "Advanced laser micro processing: software and
hardware solutions" the 08 July 2014. On the other hand, the event will feature a number of talks on the following topics:

  • EPSRC oppportunities for laser based manufacturing
  • First steps in producing a UK roadmap
  • Industrial exploitation of additive manufacturing - present and possible future
  • R&D funding from idea to prototype
  • And many other subjects!

"PLASTIC GOES MICRO" in Belgium

Op dinsdag 22 oktober 2013 organiseren Sirris en Agoria, samen met Flanders' PlasticVision en PlastiWin, een seminarie over micro-manufacturing.

  • Is micro-manufacturing uitsluitend bestemd voor hoogtechnische materialen en toepassingen?
  • Is miniaturisatie van mijn polymeerproducten mogelijk?
  • Welke technieken voor micro-manufacturing zijn compatibel met polymeren?
  • Kan ik gemakkelijk toegang krijgen tot die technieken?
  • Kan ik polymeren integreren in mijn huidige microsystemen?
  • Wat heb ik daarbij te winnen?
  • Welke nieuwe functies kan ik op microniveau toevoegen aan mijn macrostukken?
  • In welke markten zijn al microgefabriceerde kunststofstukken te vinden?
  • Welke voordelen levert het gebruik van micro-/ministukken in kunststof mij op?

"ADDITIVE MANUFACTURE RESEARCH DAY" in UK

A conference will be organised on 17th October 2013 by Advanced Materials & Processing Laboratory (AMPLab), the Metallurgy & Materials Engineering Department of the University of Birmingham, and Ecolaserfact on additive manufacturing, in particular laser direct fabrication. The event will feature a number of talks on the following topics:

  • Selective Laser Melting
  • Direct Laser Fabrication
