Industry Relevance 

LASYS, the International Trade Fair for Laser Material Processing, holds a crucial position in the field of laser technology. Founded in 2008, this biennial event creates a comprehensive platform for industry professionals to explore all related technologies and solutions. LASYS stands out as the first cross-material and cross-sector trade fair dedicated to laser technology. This unique composition ensures that attendees can explore a wide range of innovations and advancements in laser technology, presented by experts from different sectors.

Editions are held at Messe Stuttgart, Germany, alongside SurfaceTechnology GERMANY. One of the key strengths of LASYS is its focus on enabling visitors to achieve more in laser material processing. The trade fair covers various areas of laser applications, including cutting, welding, drilling, hardening, marking, and structuring. 

The exhibition is divided into three main areas: 

  • Laser Systems: laser production systems, laser-specific components and sub-systems
  • Processes: casting, forming, separating, joining, cladding, changing material properties, marking and labeling, hybrid processes, and cleaning.
  • Services: product/production services, training and further education, other services

The application of these technologies is wide and trade visitors discover the relevant solutions for a wide range of materials such as steel, aluminium, plastics, special alloys, composite materials, non-ferrous heavy metals, ceramics, glass, semi-conductors, natural rubber/rubber, wood, paper, and textiles.

LASYS goes beyond the exhibition itself, offering a range of side events and seminars to further enrich visitor experience. On one hand, you have the purely promotional events such as product launches and demonstrations. On the other, there’s valuable knowledge exchange happening at the workshops and forums, which aim to deliver strategic insight and practice advice. 

The GREAT Networking workshop facilitates networking opportunities, allowing participants to establish connections with industry peers. The Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum brings together experts and researchers to discuss the latest trends and advancements in laser technology. Additionally, the Lasers in Action Forum offers live demonstrations and presentations, showcasing lasers in practical applications.

Additional Value of Attending 

The Innovative Training Network GREAT, supported by the EU Research Framework Programme H2020 / Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, plays a significant role in advancing laser technology. The project focuses on the development and utilisation of grating waveguide structures in laser systems and its aim is to train a cohort of 15 early-stage researchers. There’s a lot of potential here when it comes to breakthroughs in laser technologies – pulse compression, spectral stabilisation, wavelength multiplexing, and polarisation shaping. By interconnecting individual projects, the participating researchers deliver innovative approaches and contribute to the advancements in this field.

As part of LASYS, the Solutions Centre provides a unique opportunity for trade visitors to connect with six renowned institutes and research facilities. Under the theme "Solution Center - Meet the experts," the institutes serve as contact partners for all inquiries related to laser material processing. You’ll be able to connect with experts working at: 

  • Institut für Strahlwerkzeuge (IFSW)
  • Bayerisches Laserzentrum GmbH (blz)
  • Fraunhofer Institut für Werkstoff- und Strahltechnik (IWS)
  • Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH)
  • Bremer Institut für angewandte Strahltechnik GmbH (BIAS)
  • Hochschule Mittweida

Attendees can discuss current and future applications of laser technology. The experts present at the Solutions Centre are equipped with extensive knowledge and expertise, making them ideal partners to address inquiries and provide solutions tailored to individual needs.
