ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Laser microwelding is a manufacturing process that joins parts together on a millimeter scale. The miniature size of the parts poses challenges in achieving consistency in both weld quality and production success.
Successful joining of two metals on a microscopic scale requires that the materials be correctly selected, the process parameters have been found, and the equipment is functioning properly. While this can be easily accomplished in laboratory environments, the transition to a production line requires additional maintenance and monitoring for continued success. Careful attention to microwelding processes will result in high quality and efficiency, perhaps the most important success criteria for a manufacturing facility.
This presentation with Mark Boyle, Ph.D., covers several key factors to consider in developing and measuring the laser microwelding process before, during and after a weld. Boyle explains how to ensure and optimize the transition from R&D to production. The webinar will end with a Q&A.
Who should be present:
This webinar will be useful to engineers and other technical specialists, developers and managers looking to gain a better understanding of how to improve the metrology and production processes of microwelding in a manufacturing environment. Additionally, for R&D scientists working with microwelding techniques or materials, understanding translation from the lab to the factory can provide useful context for practical innovations.
