Monrovia, CA – Miyachi Unitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of welding equipment and systems, announces that it will sponsor an online webcast on fiber laser welding, covering the technology’s capability and application opportunities. The webcast will be hosted by Industrial Laser Solutions For Manufacturing® on August 24, 2010, at 1 p.m. CST. Those wishing to participate should go to Industrial Laser Solutions’ event website to register.
The webcast will be presented by Dr. Geoff Shannon, Miyachi Unitek’s laser technology manager. Dr. Shannon specializes in the development of lasers and applications for existing and new markets. He has a BEng in mechanical engineering and PhD in laser welding technology from the University of Liverpool. His 20-year career in laser technology has centered on laser and system applications research and development and new product development.
“The fiber laser has unique properties of brightness, beam quality, flexibility, and cost of ownership that open up a range of application opportunities as a welding source,” said Dr. Shannon. “The webcast will demonstrate the best way for it to be implemented in a welding situation. It will be a springboard for manufacturing engineers to learn about the technology and make an informed decision on whether it can be used for their particular application.”
The session will focus on fiber laser’s welding performance and application scope. It will provide some introduction into laser welding technology, show where it works well, and provide an overview of different fiber laser weld characteristics. Application examples will be shown for both sub and multikilowatt power levels, covering both ferrous and non-ferrous materials from a range of industries. The webcast will also include information on system integration and operational considerations.
