August 7, 2009--Industrial laser systems manufacturer Miyachi Unitek (Monrovia, CA) opened its new Midwest Laser Applications Lab, which enables Miyachi Unitek to work with customers and prospects to conduct sample evaluations and produce applications reports outlining results attained utilizing its range of Nd:YAG and fiber laser welders and markers.

The lab will be managed and staffed by Andrew Dodd, sr. sales engineer and Wes Buckley, laser & systems applications engineer. Dodd and Buckley bring over 50 years' of practical experience to the lab, including application and process development, and design, assembly and troubleshooting of standard and custom laser systems.

In setting up the facility, Miyachi has partnered with AET Integration (Wixom, MI). In addition to the applications lab and office space, sharing the facility gives Miyachi access to AET's metallurgical and inspection labs to further assist customers in improving the performance of welded joints, run DOE's, and perform statistical and finite element analysis.

Miyachi Unitek designs and manufactures a full range of resistance welding and reflow soldering power supplies, heads, monitors and accessories for both large scale and fine spot applications requiring precision metals joining, lasers and laser systems for welding and marking, and hermetic sealing systems, gloveboxes and environmental enclosures, and offers applications and process development support at no charge.
