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 Welding in Metal Fabrication Processes

In recent years, with more attention being focused on the economy, manufacturing has come under increasing pressure to offer more cost competitive solutions. Globalization and the rising cost of labor have placed increasing pressure on companies to automate and offer faster yet more accurate processing.  Laser welding is now at the forefront of many markets including mining, automotive, medical and nuclear and includes cladding, welding, and heat-treating.  This presentation focuses on the the welding process, its benefits to future welding techniques and current implementations.
