Joining Technologies, Inc., an innovator in industrial laser applications, announces that it will be speaking at the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA)’s Advanced Laser Applications Workshop (ALAW) 2011. The event will be held May 3-5, at The Inn at St. John’s, in Plymouth, MI. Scott Boynton, systems engineer, will be speaking on A Laser Cutting and Welding System for Splicing Strip Alloy.
Mr. Boynton’s talk will focus on Joining Technologies’ Infinite Web® all-in-one coil joiner. The system is noted for its non-contact splicing process that incorporates laser cutting and welding with a single head. The Infinite Web is currently being updated to enable the splicing of Titanium coils as well as splicing on a 15 degree bias as an alternative to forming perpendicular joints.
“The Infinite Web dramatically increases throughput, with some customers reporting a greater than 33 percent increase in plant-wide productivity resulting from improved efficiency and capabilities,” said Mr. Boynton. “The theme of this year’s ALAW event is Lasers: Reawakening American Pride in Manufacturing and I truly believe the Infinite Web is a great example of American ingenuity at its finest.”
Designed by welders to handle material thicknesses from 0.002-inch to 0.040-inch, the Infinite Web uses coaxial optics to verify proper positioning and provide precise and accurate splices. Both cutting and welding operations are automatic and non-contact.
