  • Learning how to modulate laser power and how it affects quality and throughput.
  • Achieving optimal post-processing finishes on wood, acrylic, metal, powder-coatings, glass and more.
  • Working with the Universal 9.3 micron laser vs. the industry standard 10.6 micron laser.
  • Producing the highest quality results on trending products and newer materials including colored woods, foils and more.

Are you looking to add laser technology to your business, or hoping to expand your laser processing capabilities―and business bottom line? Whether you are brand new to lasers or a seasoned veteran, this seminar will introduce you to the benefits of laser processing, demystify some common laser processing challenges, and provide useful tips and techniques to get the most from your laser.

We’ll explain how laser optics work and show you how to produce first-rate results on various materials using different lenses. Unclear about choosing the correct laser power for your needs? We will help you understand how modulating power affects throughput and quality, and why running a 30W laser at 100% power differs drastically from running a 60W laser at 50% power. We’ll also cover some time- and material-saving, post-processing techniques to achieve the highest quality finishes on various products and materials found in the personalization market.

Curious to learn more about different laser wavelengths and which might work best for your business? We will explain the difference between the industry-standard 10.6 micron laser and the 9.3 micron, found only at Universal―and show you how the 9.3 micron laser provides cleaner cuts and intricate details on common materials. We'll also introduce a whole new approach to apparel decorating using the 9.3 micron laser. Imagine laser processing heat transfer films instead of using a vinyl cutter so you no longer have to do any weeding at all!

Lastly, we will provide valuable tips and techniques to achieve the highest quality results on some of the hottest products and newest materials on the market today.

Designed to work with any level of expertise―whether you are just looking to determine if laser technology will work for your business or are an advanced user trying to expand your abilities―this course has something for everyone
