Miyachi Unitek has announced the opening of its new Midwest Laser Applications Lab. The new facility enables the company to work with customers and prospects to conduct sample evaluations and produce applications reports outlining results attained by using its range of Nd:YAG and fiber laser welders and markers. The lab is managed and staffed by Andrew Dodd, senior sales engineer, and Wes Buckley, laser and systems applications engineer. Dodd and Buckley bring have more than 30 years of experience in application and process development and design, assembly, and troubleshooting standard and custom laser systems.
In setting up the facility, Miyachi partnered with AET Integration Inc., based just outside Detroit in Wixom, Michigan. In addition to the applications lab and office space, sharing the facility gives Miyachi access to AET's cross sectioning and inspection labs to further assist customers in improving the performance of welded joints, run DOE's, and perform statistical and finite element analysis.
