The Laser Institute (LIA)’s 38th International Congress on Applications of Lasers & Electro-Optics (ICALEO) took place at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida, USA, from Oct 7–10, 2019. As part of several new additions to this year’s expanded congress, five unique conference tracks ran throughout the event, including a showcase of laser-based Additive Manufacturing technologies.

The ‘LAM track’ was featured throughout the technical conference and workshops which took place at the four-day event, enabling professionals from academic and industrial settings to assess the global landscape of laser-based AM technologies. Additionally, attendees discussed the rapidly-growing field of hybrid processing as it relates to a wide range of process combinations, and examined the development and characterisation of emerging materials for Additive Manufacturing. 

The technical conference featured industry-focused days, covering the aerospace, biomedical, microelectronics and automotive. During the automotive-focused conference track, Ethan Sprague, University of Michigan, presented his thoughts on ‘Laser Aided Manufacturing: Atom to Automobile’, before Dr Ted Reutzel, Pennsylvania State University, described the ‘Progress Towards Sensing and Mitigating Flaw Formation in Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing.’ Dr Jason Carroll of Eaton Corporation, a power-management company, gave his presentation on ‘Bottoms Up Digital Design: The Quiet Revolution of the Additive Manufacturing Age’.

The 39th ICALEO is expected to take place at McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago, Illinois, USA from October 19–22, 2020.
