Technological Advances in High-Dynamic Laser Processing to Improve Process Throughput and Increase Part Quality
About the Webinar
High-volume manufacturing of products such as smartphones, medical devices, and semiconductors all require laser processing during the manufacturing process. Industry and consumer demand for smaller, faster, and cheaper products add to the complexity of the process and the increasing cost pressures felt by manufacturers. As a result, laser processing speed and tighter dimensional specifications are always in conflict.
There have been significant advancements in the electronics, software, and hardware for laser scan heads used to perform these processes. This presentation covers advancements in the capabilities of multiaxis laser scan heads and precision automation controls used to address these challenges.
