Orlando, Fla. – The Laser Institute of America (LIA) will hold its inaugural Lasers for Manufacturing Event (LME) on September 27 and 28 in Chicago. To help US manufacturers to modernize and upgrade their technology and be competitive in the global economy, this event is designed to fill a gap by providing designers and manufacturers with everything they need to understand lasers and laser systems and how to employ them effectively and profitably.

LME provides basic training on lasers and systems, courses on laser processes including welding and laser additive manufacturing, videos on laser processing, and examples of parts made by lasers.

The world’s leading laser and system manufacturers will exhibit at the event, have laser manufactured parts at their booths, and will have experts to explain the features to attendees. A special feature of the event will be 10, 15 and 20 minute presentations by exhibitors on the advantages of their technology in a theater directly on the show floor.

A feature of all LIA exhibits will continue with an emphasis on complementary expertise available online via its laser insights webpage (www.laserinstitute.org/laserinsights). Those who access the page can quickly learn about the latest trends in laser-based additive manufacturing, arc welding, machining, surface texturing, diagnostics, and other areas in which lasers play a significant role.
