DYNAMIC BEAM SHAPING FOR LASER WELDING
Dr. Shekel is the founder and CEO of 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
Dr. 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 Physical 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.
