We had the pleasure of interviewing Cornelia Schlingelhoff the Senior Project Manager of LASYS. The exhibition was from June 5th-7th, 2018.

What are the latest trends in Lasys? Will these trends be present at the fair?

LASYS is the only international trade fair to consistently focus on system solutions in laser material processing. With a clear focus on laser production systems, LASYS is accompanied by laser-specific machine subsystems, laser sources, processes, and services. Once again, the trade fair will demonstrate its role as the leading international trade fair for the use of lasers in industrial manufacturing and of course will show the latest trends.

What material have you prepared for the 2018 edition? What are the highlights?

LASYS offers a diversified program for laser users. While the "Lasers in Action" technical forum contains three days of practice-oriented lectures in the exhibition hall, the Stuttgart Laser Days on June 5th and 6th aim at transfering knowledge between international experts and users. At the Stuttgart Laser Marketplace on June 6th, leading experts from market research and industry will lecture on markets, technologies and applications in industrial laser technology. On June 5th, there will be a workshop on the topic of "Laser material processing in medical technology". On June 6th, the "Laser build-up welding" workshop will take place. In addition, on June 7th, there will be a networking meeting for "Women in Photonics" held by PhotonicsBW and the "EPIC meeting on lasers and material processing at LASYS“ conducted by the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC).

Events taking place concurrently at the exhibition center will provide a view beyond the boundaries of the laser industry. They include CastForge – the Trade Fair for Castings and Forgings with Processing, Surface Technology Germany – the International Trade Fair for Surface Treatments and Coating, the Automotive Testing Expo, the Automotive Interiors Expo, the Autonomous Vehicle Technology World Expo, the Engine Expo and the Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo.
