Highlights and innovations in the field of industrial laser-based manufacturing will bring together experts and users at the 9th Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum SLT from 31 May to 1 June 2016. The SLT is organized by the Institut für Strahlwerkzeuge IFSW at the University of Stuttgart and takes place in conjunction with the International Trade Fair for Laser Material Processing LASYS at the Trade Fair Centre Stuttgart (Airport).

The Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum which takes place on a biannual cycle is aimed at knowledge transfer and is recognized as an essential international user forum of the laser branch. The presentations are held in English and German, with simultaneous translation for the German talks.

As in the past the core topics of the SLT 2016 will cover the complete range from micro- to macro-processing together with the required laser sources and beam delivery systems. In addition to the latest developments on the common processes (cutting, welding, drilling, structuring etc.) the conference will particularly highlight current trends such as additive manufacturing or the system technology required to scale the productivity in micro materials processing. Correspondingly, the latest results in the fields of ultrafast lasers, beam delivery, ultrafast scanners, and beam shaping will also be presented.

The talks given by international experts from research and development will provide a profound overview over the actual trends in laser technology. In particular, the SLT provide an insight in the corresponding fundamentals with respect to future applications. This is complemented by presentations from the industries which document the actual state of innovation transfer.

The evening reception at the IFSW on 31 May will be dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the IFSW.
