Cowley purchases Laser Welder
Becoming the first college in the state to purchase a Laser Welder,
Cowley College students will get an opportunity to use the machine as
part of the Advanced Welding Processes course.
Cowley students will begin using the Laser Welder during the 2008-09 academic year.
‘We want to expose our students to some of the latest technology,” Bruce Crouse, Chair of the Career and Technical Education Department said. “With the Laser Welder and PlasmaCam, we have the vision to branch out and give the students access to more methods of welding.”
The Laser Welder is ideal for a wide range of metal joining and repair applications for jewelry, dental lab work, aerospace and optical purposes.
Cowley College welding instructor Bob Moffatt is happy to have the Laser Welder on campus.
“I think it will be an eye opener for the students and serve as a recruiting tool for us,” Moffatt said.
