FREE Fiber Laser Cutting Webcast MONROVIA, CA – Miyachi Unitek Corporation, a leading manufacturer of welding equipment and laser systems, announces that it will host Precision Fiber Laser Cutting of Thin Metals: Fundamentals and Capability, a free online webcast covering all the basics you need to consider to optimize for cutting speed, edge quality, and dimensional accuracy. The webcast will be held on Thursday, June 21, 2012, from 10-11 a.m. PST. If you missed the webcast, you may view the recording here. Ideal for design engineers, manufacturing engineers, and process engineers, as well as engineering managers, the webcast will provide an overview of the cutting process, equipment, fine cutting capabilities of fiber lasers in addition to identifying the key laser and hardware parameters needed to understand how to optimize for cutting speed, edge quality and dimensional accuracy. Material selection, cut/part geometries, an applications overview, and laser system implementation will also be given. Participants will learn how to get the most from laser cutting of thin (less than 0.03-inch thick) metals, which offers faster processing times and higher quality cuts, lower cost per manufactured part, and a small footprint. 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 a 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.
