Project and Review Meeting in Brussels

The MultiFlex project had a first interim review meeting end of November in Brussels.

We combined this with a regular project meeting to discuss the next steps towards our first demonstrators mid of 2020. We are making good progress and are optimistic to finish the demonstrator machine in time and start to tests all developed components.

During the review meeting with the EC we got fair and helpful comments and advices about our work. This helps to steer our activities in the right direction.

We all are looking forward to the next months with excitement and confidence.

Project Meeting in Bordeaux

On July 4th, the MultiFlex consortium met at Amplitude Systèmes in Pessac near the beautiful city of Bordeaux.

At the concentrated, goal-oriented and pleasant meeting different aspects of the project were discussed in detail. Special attention was paid to the concept for the optical system.

After the meeting, the consortium had the chance to take a look at the production facilities at Amplitude.

MultiFlex on the LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019

At the LASER World of PHOTONICS, one of the largest trade fairs for components, systems and applications in the field of photonics, the MultiFlex project will be represented this year.
Alexander Meyer (Fraunhofer ILT) presents the MultiFlex project at the accompanying conference “Laser in Manufacturing” in his talk “Selective Multibeam micro processing of metal with a 1×8 beam array” as the next big step in scaling-up ultrafast laser processing.

At the forum “Intelligent Laser-Based Manufacturing in Europe” Johannes Finger (Fraunhofer ILT) talks about the role of digitalization within and the perspective of artificial intelligence for the MultiFlex project.

Come and meet the MultiFlex consortium at the LASER World of PHOTONICS from June 24th to June 27th in Munich.

MultiFlex on the UKP Workshop 2019

For the fifth time, specialists from laser development, process engineering and industry met in Aachen to discuss innovative topics in the field of Ultrashort Pulse Lasers and their applications.

Oskar Hofmann and Jose A. Ramos del Campos presenting the MultiFlex project on the UKP Workshop at the Tivoli in Aachen.

With over 170 participants from 14 countries it was a great forum to introduce the MultiFlex project to experts and end-users of ultrafast laser technology.

In the talks fo Oscar Hofmann (RWTH TOS) entiteld “Design of Multibeam Optics for High Throughput Parallel Processing” and Dr. Jose Antonio Ramos de Campos (LASEA) about “Advanced Beam Management: Combination of Beam Shaping and Splitting for High-Power fs Laser Cutting and Drilling Applications” MultiFlex was made a subject of disucssion for the present laser technology experts.
