PRESENTED BY:
Adam Nelson, Laser Business Manager for R&D/Leverage
WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

As an advanced manufacturing technology Laser Ablation expands on traditional manufacturing technologies allowing design, engineering and converting firms to expand their portfolio of capabilities. With this step up in technology current users in the marketplace are seeing numerous means of increasing product value while simultaneously decreasing production lead time and cost. If interested in learning more, join the experts at R&D/Leverage, a leading supplier of molds for rigid packaging with years of experience utilizing this “micro-machining” technology. The 60 minute webinar will include detailed instruction on how the technology works, where in the manufacturing process it is most effectively implemented and the concept of using Laser Ablation as a complimentary process to traditional manufacturing technologies of milling, EDM and possibly chemical etching. In addition to this technology outline in-depth case studies of past projects will be reviewed as baseline data to aid in understanding key process metrics such as, lead time and processing cycle comparatively to traditional manufacturing processes.

Who should attend:

  • Packaging: Designers, brand owners, packaging engineers, marketing, mold designers, project engineers

  • Medical: Implantable device designers, engineers, process engineers

  • Automotive: Interior engineers, styling, process engineers, designers
