About This Webinar
The use of ultrashort pulse (USP) lasers in industrial processes for electronic, watch and jewelry, medical, glass, automotive, and aerospace is growing, thanks to the high standard of quality that can be achieved. For widespread industrial use of USP lasers to be realized, however, two key challenges need to be solved: The yield has to strongly increase for the process to be cost-effective, and improvement in quality will lead to the processing of new materials and the development of new markets.

This webinar will present how beam shaping can solve these two challenges, and how multi-plane light conversion (MPLC) can achieve yield and quality improvement while being compatible with industrial setups.

Attendees will learn how beam shaping improves several applications:
  • Yield of surface texturing for deep blackening with a high aspect ratio line top-hat.
  • Yield of molybdenum over steel decoating with highly homogenous beam splitting.
  • High-speed glass cutting with high-quality Bessel beams.
  • Conicity improvement of metal percussion drilling with square and round top-hats.
