Special show and social media: Follow-up to LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019

LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019 took place in Munich from June 24 to 27. During the fair visitors were able to experience innovations and trends of the industry. The LPT was also actively involved. At the special show “Photons in Production” colleagues of the institute provided a comprehensive view into current trends and research results in the field of laser material processing in collaboration with the Bayerisches Laserzentrum GmbH (blz), the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb) at the Technical University of Munich and the Messe München International.

Besides trade visitors, customers, business partners and old friends, YouTuber Cedric Engels – also known as “Doktor Whatson” – visited the special show. Especially the laser live demonstration concerning laser beam welding with visible light was of particular interest for him. On-site, copper was welded with a blue laser. Kerstin Schaumberger, Head of Process Technology Metals at the Bayerisches Laserzentrum, informed the science-loving videographer about the potential that visible wavelength offer for laser beam welding.
