Laser Systems Customer Training

IPG wants you to get the very best out of your system, starting from before it is installed right through the very extended life of your tool.

Training starts in an informal way the day you engage with IPG on running samples in one of the applications laboratories. IPG specialists will perform a variety of tests with different laser types and processes and make the selections that give you the best and most cost-effective performance on your parts. At each stage they will review with you the reasoning behind the selection, and explain the underlying technology so you can question and better understand the solution that is being proposed.

Schedule Your Custom Training Session

Our training team can travel to your facility or you can visit our state-of-the-art application labs.

Upcoming Training Sessions

IPG offers regularly scheduled training courses in both Laser Welding and Laser Cutting. These are introductory-level courses intended for IPG System customers that need either refresher training or training for new operators. While hands-on training will specifically reference IPG products, much of the classroom curriculum covers standard technology and process issues, and is suitable for prospective customers looking to gain additional understanding of the subject prior to committing to equipment purchase.

Registration begins 4 weeks prior to the event and space is limited.
When classes have reached maximum occupancy, registration will close.

On-Location Customer Training

When your system has been built, you will be invited to the factory to perform Factory Acceptance Tests, verifying that the equipment meets specification. Once FAT is complete, factory engineers will provide operation and set-up training on the equipment. Maintenance training can also be provided at this time if required.

Following delivery and installation of the system to your facility, IPG engineers will be on site to perform alignment and tests to verify that the machine is performing to specification, then perform the formal Site Acceptance Tests. Following completion of these tests, the engineers will provide operator and setup training for any customer staff that were not able to attend the previous factory training, and will also provide training on routine maintenance specific to your laser system.

All training by IPG will be appropriate to the type of system and the application for which it is purchased, and assumes that operation and set-up personnel being trained have experience or expertise with PC and/or PLC control software including CAD. Maintenance personnel are assumed to be mechanically and electrically inclined.

Regardless of the levels of expertise, all IPG training places a heavy focus on all aspects of laser, electrical, and mechanical safety, ensuring that IPG laser systems users enjoy the highest levels of personal safety and productivity.
