Around 80 international visitors and industrial laser technology experts were drawn to the Stuttgart metropolitan region on June 21/22. More precisely, to the company headquarters of ACSYS Lasertechnik GmbH in Kornwestheim where the ACSYS LaserTech Days 2023 took place under the motto “Precision & Innovation”. On the occasion of the company’s 20th anniversary, well-known international brand manufacturers came to the in-house exhibition to learn about the latest developments in the field of high-precision laser technology. A lecture program full of highlights provided the framework for the event. The spectrum ranged from innovative processes for selective paint removal using the patented Large Field Removal (LFR) technology in the automotive and mobility sectors, direct laser engraving and pulse forging in coin minting, to the automation of processes using the VDMA OPC UA standard for laser systems and a look into the future of laser micromachining.
Of course, there were also plenty of insights into practical laser processing with ACSYS hardware and software. The new PIRANHA® system generation with Ultra Short Pulse Laser (USPL) and lightweight steel construction as well as slim footprint celebrated a premiere. In addition, the focus was on robotic and automation solutions as well as the patented Large Field Removal (LFR) system for selective paint removal on large areas (2000 x 2000 mm).
Gerhard Kimmel, founder and managing director of the company, draws a positive conclusion: “It’s great that we can finally experience joint events again without any restrictions. First and foremost because of the interpersonal aspect. Fantastic weather, great guests and technical discussions with depth – that’s what a successful event looks like to me.” Since the foundation of ACSYS Lasertechnik in 2003, laser processing has been the focus of all products, solutions and services. With now more than 120 employees at the Kornwestheim and Mittweida sites, ACSYS has become the first address for high-quality solutions for engraving, marking, structuring, welding and cutting with high-precision laser technology.

Producing stamp dies for minting is a challenging task. For more than 20 years, hubbing has been the main process, but since the amount of commemorative coins and medals is growing steadily and the need for quicker design-changes has increased at the same time, a new process is needed for creating high-quality stamping-dies with a comparable die-life.
With latest developments and innovations by ACSYS, laser engraving has reached an incredible engraving speed and gained various additional production capabilities. First and foremost, the Premium-Performance Galvo Scan Head speeds up the 3D engraving process by up to 70% for complex designs. Further to this, the Femtosecond Laser delivers incredible quality and speed, similar or better to a Picosecond Laser system. And with our patented Pulse Forging
technology you can make surfaces clean, smooth and shiny, similar to polishing. However, Pulse Forging
is a cold process and thus does not change any material properties or affect the hardness of the die.
And, as Alexander Aminidis pointed out during his presentation at 19th Technical Forum at World Money Fair in Berlin: “Direct Laser Engraving process takes approximately one day, instead of months for the traditional workflow. Starting with scanning the order and loading the design, right to direct engraving and coating, the process is very straightforward and merely a question of hours instead of days, depending on the quantity of engravings you need.”

Jonathan Magee writes under the title: “Laser processing complex parts. Laser automation advances are opening up new avenues for laser materials processing”.
In the article at Laser Focus World Jonathan talks about the regular workflow and compares it to the ACSYSTechnology LFR® – Large Field Removal for fast, seamless and precise, selective paint removal, structuring or cleaning.

Everyone can try!
prepare personalize engrave enjoy!
As every year, the students of the Ernst-Siegle-Gymnasium visit us to get an insight into the fascinating world of laser technology. Our application engineers give an easy-to-understand overview of the technology before everyone is allowed to realize their personalized engraving with a machine. A great opportunity to talk to us and inquire about BOGY/internship opportunities.
We are looking forward to next year and are curious what faces we will see again in an internship.
