F11: Laser Metal Technology for Fabricators

Breakout Session | Tuesday, June 12, 2018 | 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm


Laser Joining Advancements

This presentation will discuss the concept behind the function of this process along with various means of process control through the usage of pyrometers (heat sensors), scanning technology, and adaptive controls. It will look to address means which help ensure material temperatures are kept constant both in thick and thin sections and how to keep fine details and edges such that they retain the same geometric shape (sharp edges, contours) after processing.

Fiber Laser Technology & Advancements

The presentation will be on the current trends in Fiber laser technology, including punch press combination and how these developments affect productivity in manufacturing. OEM’s and job shops will experience not only increased productivity and reduced costs, but they will also gain the capabilities to offer new services or take on work that they may never have been able to profitably do before. Additional topics may include the rapid advancement in available power and how best to choose the right technology for your production environment.
