About the 19th International Symposium on Laser Precision Microfabrication (LPM)

The LPM is a leading symposium focused on laser precision manufacturing. This will be the first time for it to be held in Edinburgh where it will be hosted at the Edinburgh Conference Centre within the campus of Herriot-Watt University. Assembling leading experts from around the world, this is a key event where the latest developments in laser precision manufacture and the future of the art will be explored in depth by the community of industry experts, equipment manufacturers, researchers and academia.

The forum will address the fundamentals of laser-matter interaction, what’s new in laser materials processing, and related areas.

LPM Conference Program

The conference program extends over four days and includes the following topics:

There will be three eminent plenary speakers who will address: Inertial Confinement Fusion, High-Speed 3D Laser Metal Deposition, and The Fiber Laser Revolution. There will also be nine special session invited speakers, and seventeen session invited speakers.

LPM Exhibition

The exhibition takes place during days two and three of the conference. It is anticipated that around 80 exhibitors will take part. There will also be a poster exhibition for participants to share their latest results, with an official poster session taking place on 25th June with the posters being available to view for the duration of the event.

The Edinburgh Conference Centre

Situated in the campus of Herriot-Watt University, the conference centre offers excellent facilities while being ideally placed for making the best of the City of Edinburgh.

SPI Lasers at LPM

LPM is one of the highlights in the world of laser precision manufacturing and promises to be an exciting event in this rapidly developing field. While on the scale of some of the major international exhibitions in the world of lasers this exhibition may appear modest, it is also a more intimate, giving you the opportunity to explore in greater depth. SPI lasers will be exhibiting our latest fiber laser developments, and we will be represented by Jack Gabzdyl, our VP of Marketing and Business Development. We look forward to the prospect of meeting you there, and if you want to get in touch earlier, you can contact us.
