TWI launches new training course to deliver essential competency skills for laser processing

TWI is delighted to announce the launch of a new training course, designed by technology experts, to deliver essential skills in the use of laser and hybrid welding technologies. The demand for this type of training has grown as the use of laser technology during manufacture increases. TWI Member companies have increasingly asked for staff to be trained to ensure the correct use of the equipment. In response to this, the first scheduled public course will be run at TWI in Cambridge, UK on 4 June 2014.

An Introduction to Laser and Hybrid Welding will be of particular relevance to companies using these technologies, especially in the automotive, shipbuilding, aerospace, medical and sensors sectors. The course is ideal for process engineers, manufacturing engineers, supervisory staff and those involved in the purchasing of laser processing equipment.

TWI has been at the forefront of the technological development of using lasers for materials processing since the mid-1960s, many variants of which are currently used in production processes including cutting, welding, marking, surface engineering and direct parts fabrication. The range of applications covers metals, plastics, semiconductors and ceramics on a scale from sub-micron to several metres.

TWI has a number of laser facilities, and the development of laser processing for metals and non-metallic materials is carried out using a wide variety of laser sources.
