Trumpf and Siemens have partnered up to help industrialize laser metal fusion technology, in an effort to make additive manufacturing of metal parts an essential part of production processes.

LIA Updates

Laser Safety Officers (LSOs) hold a significant amount of responsibility in their position. Online training through LIA can help boost your credibility as an LSO. Through online training, LSOs are more familiar with ANSI standards, are able to pass along knowledge to peers and colleagues, and are equipped to develop a Laser Safety Program. Learn more about how LSOs may benefit from online training through LIA here.
