The webcast will cover applications examples of laser marking technology, including marking on anodized aluminum, metal and plastics; precision marking for smallest feature size; engraving of stainless steel; and high speed marking of aluminum. The webcast will also cover laser system implementation.
Dr. Boyle specializes in the development and support of lasers and applications for existing markets. His 15 year career has focused on a range of laser based applications, including spectroscopy and micromachining with pulsed fiber, diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS), and ultrafast lasers. He has a BS in physics from the University of Texas at Austin and a PhD in molecular physics from the Free University in Berlin, Germany.
“Laser marking is a fast and clean marking technology that is ideal for direct marking of part information to aid in tracking and traceability, from medical devices to automotive and aerospace parts,” said Dr. Boyle. “Webcast participants will learn how laser marking’s easy and flexible automation, improved environmental profile, and low cost of ownership add to the benefits of the technology,” he added.
