Dale Binder, a parts technician at Foremost in Calgary, Alberta, won the contest and will drive off in style in his new orange fury 2018 Mustang GT Fastback.

Walter’s Flexsteel contest ran across North America from May 15 to November 15, 2017. To register, participants entered the promo codes found on specially marked 10-packs of Flexsteel flap discs.  All winners were randomly selected. To date, Walter has given away a total of 75 weekly prizes as well as the grand prize.

“We thank all of those who participated in the contest and congratulate Mr. Binder and the other weekly prize winners,” said Dan Pirro, vice president of marketing at Walter Surface Technologies. “We wanted metalworking professionals to test the new Flexsteel flap disc in their facilities so they could experience the speed, power, and performance of Walter abrasives for themselves. We're extremely pleased with the overwhelmingly positive reaction this contest had with our customer base.”

When he learned he was the winner, Mr. Binder described the news as “life-changing.” The winning flap discs were purchased at Vallen in Calgary, Alberta.

Members of the Walter team will deliver the Mustang to Mr. Binder at a ceremony in January 2018.

Nd:YAG or fiber laser for micro welding?

Choosing the best option for your application

By Geoff Shannon, Amada Miyachi America

Four lasers can be used for micro welding: pulsed neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG), continuous wave (CW) fiber, quasi continuous wave (QCW) fiber, and nanosecond fiber. Each laser type offers unique features that work best for specific applications. Here is a comparison of the pulsed Nd:YAG laser with the three fiber laser options, and a discussion of why and when one might be chosen over the other. In some cases, several options may work; in that case, cost of ownership and serviceability can tip the scales.
