Kingpin University to Offer First Laser Cutting Class
Kingpin University will soon offer a class to fully acquaint mobile electronics installers and fabricators with practical uses for laser cutting machines. The Laser Focus three-day session is scheduled for Sept. 7-9 at the firm’s new retail and training facility in Las Vegas.
The Laser Focus course will familiarize attendees with the laser-cutting and engraving machinery, including power requirements, maintenance and safety. A segment on software will teach configuration and setup to properly plan and input jobs. Attendees will get ideas from instructors on how to make premium enhancements to traditional installs, as well as learn tips and techniques to improve efficiency, according to Kingpin University. The class also will cover how retailers can bid for and profit from laser-enhanced work.
“I think just the word laser causes an intimidation factor in our industry,” said Jason Kranitz Kingpin University president. “It’s a big machine with technology we really only talk about in science fiction and specialized fabrication. The goal of the class is for shops to see a laser cutting machine as a tool they can use every day on a number of projects to add creativity and value to their work.”
Kranitz will be joined by industry experts John Brettle, Chris McNulty, and Erick Markland, all of whom have been recognized and awarded by Mobile Electronics magazine for their installation and fabrication expertise. Instructors will guide attendees in creating take-home projects that demonstrate their laser use and fabrication skill to potential customers.
Laser Focus is the second class offered by Kingpin University since its move from Wilsonville, Oregon to Las Vegas.
The first educational session held in Las Vegas welcomed 35 attendees to the new Kingpin University facility to learn techniques for 3D routering, vinyl wrapping, metal mesh and using aluminum and stainless steel to create attractive accents for finished work.
“The main reason we made the move was to make training more accessible to more installers,” said Kranitz. “Las Vegas is a popular destination so there are more affordable flight and entertainment options. Our ultimate objective is to become an easy-to-access training hub where we can host classes and partner with manufacturers to train industry professionals in a working retail facility.”
