Photonics 4 Additive Manufactured Products



Photonic technologies such as lasers and optical sensing enable the additive manufacturing of innovative products. In several applications (e.g. aerospace and medical) such additively manufactured products are already applied. The scope of the workshop is to inform end users of additively manufactured products about the capabilities and opportunities of new technologies enabled by photonics. Experts in the field of laserenabled additive manufacturing provide an overview about products being made already for different applications. The aim of the workshop is the creation of new co-operations and product ideas by exchanging ideas between different industries and levels of the value chain. Moreover the workshop has a transnational focus and a strengthening of regional co-operation between Austria and Northern-Italy is targeted.
