  • March 11, 2016

Charlotte, N.C., March 11, 2016 – Murata Machinery USA, Inc. is pleased to introduce Andrew Wildman as a Laser Applications Engineer, based out of its U.S. headquarters in Charlotte, NC.

With 26 years of experience, Andrew is not a new-comer to working with lasers. For 17 of these years, he gained wide experience as a field service engineer supporting a variety of machines, including CO2 flat sheet cutters. His work as a service engineer allowed him to sharpen his skills with cutting applications. For the past several years, he has worked in the gas turbine industry with laser cladders and fusion welders using IPG Fiber Lasers. The opportunity to work with cutting lasers again was one Andrew couldn’t pass up. “I’ve always been fascinated with the speed and precision in the technology used in laser cutting. When given the opportunity to work with Murata and its fiber laser, I just knew I wanted to be a part of the team.”

Andrew’s experience in the industry and with lasers makes him a great fit for Murata, as well. “Andrew’s experience supporting lasers and laser applications was a no-brainer for us. Exceeding our customer’s expectations is our goal, and Andrew brings a wealth of experience that will prove invaluable to our customers,” says Jeff Kalmbach, General Manager – Machine Tool Division.

Andrew is based out of Murata Machinery’s U.S. headquarters in Charlotte, NC, and will support customers across the Fabrication Business Unit’s North American territory.
