17th Nordic Laser Materials Processing Conference, NOLAMP17
The major impetus in the manufacturing industry is to develop more productive and robust process technologies to meet competitive challenges. Over the past decades, laser processing has made some major steps towards industrial applications in a wide range of industries and has substituted many traditional industrial processing technologies. Laser is now vital key element in obtaining a sustainable economy in Europe and is vital in terms of competition with low labour costs countries. Processing using lasers is an area with continuous research and development which will result in new products with improved quality and performance. The purpose of the NOLAMP conference is to present the newest scientific and industrial knowledge from the field of laser processing.
