Scanlab names Morris as VP for Blackbird North America

Novi, MIBlackbird Robotersysteme GmbH—a division of Scanlab AG, an innovation leader in remote laser welding solutions—has announced the appointment of Tim Morris as VP North America.

"Tim Morris brings extensive, robotics, laser, and materials processing experience to his new role that will help accelerate our efforts to implement and support our remote laser processing solutions in North America," says Wolfgang Vogl, co-founder and president of Blackbird Robotersysteme GmbH.

Morris was formerly the VP of EOS of North America, where he led the sales and service activities for the North American market. Prior to EOS, Morris was the Laser Technology Division general manager at TRUMPF North America, where he oversaw the sales and service activities. He spent more than a decade with TRUMPF in various capacities.

Morris has worked in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, power generation, medical, and consumer electronics. "I look forward to putting my experience and passion for materials processing to work for Blackbird," he says. "We have a very innovative product platform that can enable manufacturers to dramatically increase their productivity and profitability."

Blackbird systems, dedicated to the development and production implementation of remote laser processing solutions, have gained acceptance in high-volume manufacturing applications throughout central Europe and are proving to be a game-changer for productivity increases in remote welding applications. Now with the second generation production systems in place, expansion to the North American market is a natural progression. A number of North American companies are already evaluating the technology and the first production systems are planned for installation in the coming months.

In addition to business development and sales support, Morris will lead the establishment of an application engineering and service capability for the North American market.
