Amada Miyachi Expands Its Technical Center
Amada Miyachi America announces its expanded Detroit technical center.
Amada Miyachi America has expanded its Detroit technical center. The updated facility now features 5,500 square feet of laboratory space devoted to application development services for welding, marking, ablation, scribing and texturing of metals and plastics. Also on site is an expanded metallurgical lab for examining laser or resistance welds to analyze weld penetration and joint quality.
Application experts are on hand to develop next-generation joining or marking processes, especially for medical, aerospace, automotive, and electric vehicle battery production and joining of cells. The facility offers expertise and access to equipment so that customers do not have to use their existing facilities for developmental products.
The technical center is managed by senior applications engineer Wes Buckley, who has 38 years of process experience in lasers and has worked at the existing laboratory for more than a decade. He is joined by three experienced technical experts who have worked closely with major automotive, medical and aerospace companies seeking to enhance their product development capabilities.
