ABB Robotics will host a Laser Processing Workshop on April 27th, 2011 from 9:00 am. to 5:30 pm. at their North American headquarters and training center in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Robotic laser processing, especially welding and cutting, is one of the fastest growing technologies in metal fabrication. The workshop will give current and potential users of laser technology in-depth, hands-on exposure to: robotic laser best practices, application pitfalls, investment justification factors, key process hardware components, and considerations to determine how robotic laser technology can help their specific operation. Registration is open and free of charge to qualified personnel in manufacturing companies engaged in high precision metal fabrication with interest in learning more about robotic laser processing. Go to roboticsanswers.com/58 to register and for more information. For any specific questions call 248-391-8400.

In addition to comprehensive presentations from ABB robotic laser experts, the workshop will feature sessions hosted by technical experts from IPG Photonics, Precitec, Laser Mechanisms and RoboVent. Robotic laser technology has emerged in a variety of fabrication segments including those involved with hot-stamp steels, tubular parts, hydroform components and traditional flat sheet cutting. The workshop will cover these areas and more, featuring presentations, live process demonstrations, equipment reviews, and coverage of the advanced software tools that allow for ultimate flexibility. All attendees will also receive a reference kit with relevant resources and workshop transcripts at the end of the workshop.

“This event is a must for anyone involved in precision metal fabrication who have, or are considering, laser technology, and would like to see how the inclusion of robots could make their operation more flexible and profitable, ” said Joe Campbell, vice president of the ABB Robot Products Group in the US. “We have brought together some of the best resources in the industry and it will be a unique and highly worthwhile day for those who attend.”
