On-Demand Webinar: Beam Shaping in Laser Welding Processes

DYNAMIC BEAM SHAPING FOR LASER WELDING

Dr. Shekel is the founder and CEO ofeyal-shekel Civan Advanced Technologies – the first
company to develop industrial lasers based
on Coherent Beam Combining.

Prior to Civan, Dr. Shekel founded Cielo,
a leading company in the manufacture of
Fiber Optical Gyros and navigation systems
and Founder and general manager of Chiaro
Networks which developed the largest optical
switch in the world.

Dr. Shekel received his PhD in physics at NYU.

INFLUENCE OF STATIC AND DYNAMIC BEAM SHAPING ON THE LASER WELDING PROCESS

weberDr. Weber received his PhD in 1988 at the
Institute of Applied Physics (IAP) of the University
of Bern on the subject of "X-ray emission from
laser-generated plasmas".

In the following years he headed the research groups "Diode-Pumped Solid-State Lasers" and "Laser Material
Processing" at the IAP.

Since 2008, he is lecturer at the University of Stuttgart
and head of the process development group at the
IFSW- Institute for laser Tools.

INFLUENCE OF POWER DISTRIBUTION ON WELD SEAM QUALITY AND GEOMETRY IN LASER BEAM WELDING OF ALUMINUM ALLOYS

Mr. Eric Punzel, M. Sc.: Has studied Physicaleric-punzel Engineering (Laser Technology) in Mittweida, Germany.

Currently, he is working as a process development
engineer at BBW Lasertechnik GmbH for several years
and responsible for feasibility studies in laser welding,
cutting and USP (ultra short pulse) machining, as well
as the project management for national and
international R&D projects.
