EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Laser Micromachining
Online Event

Laser-micromachining end-users have always more demanding requirements in terms of throughput and precision that affect all the components of the workstation: ultra-short-pulsed lasers, scanners, robots and movement stages, software and integration. The applications are in all possible materials: metals, semiconductors, glass, polymers… The full supply chain is invited to join us and a few system integrators and end-users of the technology will tell us about which limits photonics has to help to overcome.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.

The EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Laser Micromachining was very valuable to attend and contribute. I was impressed by the quality of the talks, and how this community-based group was able to bring to the forum technical business problems that needed solutions, in addition to cutting edge technology solutions for a variety of industrial applications. I have been able to make some valuable connections with EPIC suppliers to add to our company's portfolio of technology offerings. In addition to the cutting edge technology, I have found that the EPIC community has a collaborative, thoughtful and joyful mindset, which makes it a pleasure to work with! I'm looking forward to further collaboration with EPIC and our business.
