New fibre lasers prove reliable tool

A LECTURE will be held today on the use of lasers in decommissioning.

Lasers are well suited to remote deployment due to the lack of reaction force, small process head and limited fume generation.

Until recently industrial lasers were regarded as too unreliable for use in nuclear decommissioning environments and so their usage has been limited. The advent of solid state "fibre lasers" has however now provided a truly robust and reliable industrial 'tool'.

This presentation will demonstrate the capabilities of optical fibre delivered laser power, to remove the surface of various representative concrete samples and to perform for single-sided pipe and tube cutting.

In addition to operational performance issues such as deployment, control, collection of waste materials and operator skills levels will also be addressed.

The lecture will be presented by Colin Walters of TWI Ltd today at the Samuel Lindow Building, Westlakes Science Park, from 7pm.
