About this event

Erwin founded GELA GmbH in 1985, a company who provide consultancy and advice on laser safety.  GELA's principal specialisation is the design & risk analysis of safety housing for very powerful lasers used in manufacturing processes.
He has carried out many experiments and exposure trials on the safety of a wide-rane of differing materials. 

His experimentation and risk analyses are incorporated into standard DIN/EN 60825-4.
He is a delegate for Germany on international committees such as IEC TC76 & WG7.
Erwin also leads working group AK841.0.2 High Performance Lasers, a sub-group of the AK 842 Laser Safety DKE standard.

His talk will look at the correct use of materials and geometries for safety housings.  Erwin will look at the reaction of different materials when exposed to laser radiation in actual failure situations.


  • Doors open 7 pm
  • Light refreshments
  • Talk starts 7.30 pm
  • Talk finishes by 9.30 pm
