Laser Photonics Corporation Introduces Innovative Titan Express Mid-Size Laser Cutting Machine

Laser Photonics Logo

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The innovative Titan Express, a mid-size laser cutting machine from Laser Photonics, combines a small footprint and high performance with the cut quality of a full-size industrial laser cutter. This laser cutting machine is powerful and reliable, integrating cutting edge motion engineering, CNC control, and fiber laser technologies in a size that will fit any facility and budget. It is equipped with a high-powered, energy-efficient fiber laser and an advanced direct drive motion control platform, making it the best machine for cutting highly reflective materials, including stainless steel, aluminum, brass, and copper.

The Titan Express has a lightweight design and the fastest cutting speed on the market. This system consumes less than 20% of the power required by conventional CO2 laser systems and has one-third of the operating costs of other laser machines. The Titan Express’s fully software-controlled geometry alignment eliminates the need for special installation requirements and requires no optical system alignment, laser service or laser replacement parts, making this system virtually maintenance-free.

The performance advantage of this laser cutting system is Direct Drive Motion System (DDMS) technology, a maintenance-free magnetic-based motion platform that is superior to any other mechanical motion system simply because it is an order of magnitude lower in resistance. All other competing technologies require larger, high power consumption motors to offset higher-resistant motion systems that need routine replacement of parts due to continuous friction- based wear and tear. Another significant technology advantage is the use of fully-sealed encoders that permanently eliminate conditions for laser placement errors and material jamming accidents associated with optical encoders that occasionally break or lose location accuracy due to accumulated debris obscuring the optical location functionality.
These laser cutting systems are equipped with native CNC G-Code Controls and can be operated by any trained machinist. They are geared toward companies involved in sheet metal fabrication and equipment manufacturing, as well as companies that produce construction equipment, aluminum vehicles, kitchenware, copper and brass gaskets, food processing equipment, and materials used in the aerospace and defense industries.

Laser Photonics is the industry leader in developing high-tech Fiber, UltraFast, UV, CO2 and Green laser systems, specializing in advanced and innovative processes and technologies. The company is a one-stop shop, supplying laser machines, automation, and software, as well as exceptional customer service. All systems are made in the USA, and warranties and financing programs are available.

Kona-Based Artist John Ferdico is July’s Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park Resident Artist

What I try to do is make each piece appear to be this exquisitely detailed and accurate model, but with this strange marking scheme.”

— John Ferdico, NPAF artist in residence

VOLCANO, HAWAI'I, US, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — ISLAND OF HAWAIʻI — Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park and The National Parks Arts Foundation are proud to announce that John Ferdico, a photographer and installation artist originally from New York, but who for years has called Kailua-Kona his home, will be July’s Artist in Residence near the Park which is at the moment closed to the public due to high concentrations of Sulfur Dioxide, explosive ash clouds, ejected rock, and earthquakes at Kilauea’s summit that began in March of 2008.

Ferdico will also produce a presentation for visitors and the public at large, on July 20th, 2018 at 10 am, at the Kahuku Unit of the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Directions: Enter the Kahuku unit of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park on the mauka (uphill) side of Highway 11 near mile marker 70.5. This event is made possible with support from the National Park Service, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Friends of Hawai’i National Park.

Ferdico, a visual artist born in New York, but was raised in Kansas City, where he received his B.A. in Fine Arts from the Kansas City Art Institute. After that, he received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, and lived in Oakland, CA, before moving to Hawai’i in 2012. The Artist takes hyperreal model aircraft, painstakingly builds them, paints them, and then uses them as a launching platform for a surrealist visual experiments that both entrance and estrange. Says Ferdico about the process: “What I try to do is make each piece appear to be this exquisitely detailed and accurate model, but with this strange marking scheme. I suppose it is a Surrealist strategy, meant to cause the viewer to reconsider the more ordinary elements seen in the juxtapositions.”

Currently, his art process focuses on making multimedia works that mix craft at a high level with a wandering search to make modern devotional objects, that indicate toward but don’t spell out, mystery and veneration. Says Ferdico: “I started looking at various folk art forms because there is a remarkable similarity of intent in the making of objects. We make mementos, we make icons that evoke stories and lessons of virtue, we make charms meant to protect us from harm. And that's where the ideas about culture, spirituality, and technology emerge for me. I decided I want to do the same thing artists have always done, but I want to reference of our own culture, reflect the complications of our modern beliefs, and use the materials of our own era. So I ended up gluing pictures on model airplanes, using the imagery to suggest some surreal camouflage that might transform the object into a likeness of some mythical being.”

For Ferdico, the experience of relocating to Hawai’i has been transformative for his view of the world and his art process: “Having lived in big cities all my life, the move to Hawaii is a strange one, but one I feel so lucky to have blundered into making. What I like most about it may also be what has the biggest impact on my art, and it's a difficult one to reconcile. Moving here I quickly learned Aloha is not a mere greeting, but the incantation of a profound moral philosophy. For me it became an invitation to a calmer, more decent, and more thoughtful life. Aloha elevates compassion and deference above the search for truth, the typical western imperative. Maybe this is because Aloha doesn't seem to aspire to an idealized existence, and maybe that's because the beauty of this environment doesn't cause people to need more. But for an artist for whom art is as much a referendum as an exaltation, and for an artist whose urge to express is mainly by contrariness and dissent, I sometimes feel uncomfortable making art here. Or maybe Aloha has soothed my contrariness and dissent, making me feel less urge to express.”

And because the United States is an infinitely practical place, what is this art useful for? John Ferdico has a preliminary answer: “I have this crazy urge to hang one over my bed so the North Koreans won't nuke Hawaii.”

NPAF is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion of the National Parks of the U.S. through creating dynamic opportunities for artworks that are based in our natural and historic heritage. This project is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Friends of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, and other generous benefactors. All NPAF programs are made possible through the philanthropic support of donors of all sorts ranging from corporate sponsors, small business, and art patrons and citizen-lovers of the Parks. NPAF is always seeking new partners and donors for its wide-ranging artist-in-residence programs.

If you do not hire the most qualified mesothelioma attorneys, you just might end up with a less-than-stellar mesothelioma financial compensation settlement”

— Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center specializes in assisting construction workers and skilled trades workers in Idaho with mesothelioma obtain the best possible financial compensation results. The group offers direct access to the nation's top lawyers who consistently get the best possible financial compensation results for their clients. As the group would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303, "Having the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys and receiving the very best financial compensation for this asbestos exposure form of cancer are directly related.

"Much like you would only want to hire skilled contractors when building a house or commercial structure, having the most experienced and qualified mesothelioma attorneys carefully advancing the claim, or numerous financial compensation claims, ensures higher success chance and compensation value as the group would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303." http://Idaho.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The group would like to make 100% certain that a construction or a skilled trades worker such as an electrician, plumber, welder, or carpenter in Idaho with mesothelioma have the nation's top lawyers at their direct disposal; as opposed to having an inexperienced local personal-injury law firm or mesothelioma middleman broker law firm that has little to do with the compensation claim.

"If we had just one important tip for any recently diagnosed construction worker or skilled trades worker with mesothelioma in Idaho it would be this: "Measure two, three, or four times before you hire a law firm. Call us at 800-714-0303 before hiring a lawyer to assist with your compensation process. If you do not hire the most qualified mesothelioma attorneys, you just might end up with a less-than-stellar mesothelioma financial compensation settlement. Translation: you will get shortchanged on mesothelioma compensation." http://Idaho.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Idaho Mesothelioma Victims Center specializes in assisting people nationwide who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma because of their exposure to asbestos as a:

* Construction worker
* Electrician
* Plumber
* Welder
* Insulator

Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges A Hospital Employed MD or RN in Michigan to Call Them About Rewards if Their Employer is Forcing Medicare Patients to Be Admitted Rather Than Outpatient Treatment

Call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if your hospital employer is forcing you to admit Medicare or Medicaid patients to the hospital when more affordable outpatient care should have been provided.”

— Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center says "We are urging a hospital employed medical doctor, or registered nurse in Michigan or any other state to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is forcing them to admit Medicare or Medicaid patients to the hospital when more affordable outpatient care should have been provided. In a recent example a hospital employee received $3.3 million dollars for this type of information. http://Michigan.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

In a recent example the Department of Justice announced a company that operates acute care hospitals agreed to pay $18 million to settle allegations that 12 of its hospitals knowingly submitted false claims to Medicare by admitting patients who could have been treated on a less costly outpatient basis. As mentioned the whistleblower in this instance received $3.3 million dollars for their information.

The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center is especially interested in hearing from healthcare managers, medical doctors or registered nurses if they have specific proof of the following:

* A hospital is paying commissions to ER doctors to admit Medicare or Medicaid patients rather than providing treatment on an outpatient basis.

* A drug or alcohol treatment center in Michigan is simply warehousing drug addicts or alcoholics and charging Medicaid as if they are treating the patient/addict. As soon as the Medicaid funding runs out the patient is discharged.

* A hospice provider that is signing up homeless people or drug addicts who are not dying; and then billing Medicare for services never provided or for unnecessary medical procedures.

* A pharmaceutical representative bribing medical doctors to over-prescribe their drug products.

* A nursing home or skilled nursing facility billing Medicare for unnecessary extremely expensive medical tests involving ambulatory, speech, and or cognitive abilities.

* An in-home healthcare company that is grossly overbilling Medicare for hours never worked.

The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you are a healthcare manager, a physician or registered nurse and you have proof a company is engaged in a multi-million-dollar scheme to overbill Medicare or Medicaid please call us anytime at 866-714-6466. Please do not sit on a potentially multi-million dollar winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth. http://Michigan.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Michigan Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward.

Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Michigan based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Michigan can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Michigan.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com

Doolittle & Tucker, P.A. are the ideal choice to assist you with your Defense Base Act claims. Call us at 904.396.1734 to discuss your claim.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you are working for a private contractor that is employed overseas by the United States government, then The Defense Base Act is something that you need to know about. The kinds of benefits afforded to those in the branches of the U.S. military are not necessarily available to non-military personnel who do contract work with the military.

Therefore, you should make sure that your company is in compliance with The Defense Base Act, and that you are aware of what you need to do to take advantage of the workers’ compensation protections under the Defense Base Act.

This article is a brief primer on the what, when, and how of The Defense Base Act; and we at the law firm of Doolittle & Tucker Law are on the ready to help you should you need expert workers’ compensation advice involving The Defense Base Act.

What is The Defense Base Act?

As World War II was heating up for the United States in 1941, it became apparent that non-military personnel employed on U.S. defense bases needed some protection from injury while employed. Military service personnel had insurance coverage through the military, yet civilian workers on those same U.S. defense bases did not. To remedy that problem, The Defense Base Act of 1941 was born.

The purpose of The Defense Base Act was to make sure that civilians working overseas for a U.S. government agency were protected in the event of injury, kidnapping, or death. Accordingly, the U.S. extended the already existing federal workers’ compensation program for longshoremen and harbor workers, appropriately called the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, to people employed at U.S. defense bases overseas.

The Defense Base Act, or DBA, is administered by the U.S. Department of Labor and is meant to compensate defense contractor employees who are injured in the scope of their employment. The DBA has been revised several times in order to broaden the scope of who may be covered by the workers’ compensation program.

Who is Covered by The Defense Base Act?

The DBA covers the following types of employees:

• Employees of private employers stationed overseas on a U.S. military base, or on any land used for military purposes by the U.S.
• Employees involved in a contract with any U.S. government agency for public works, such as construction or service contracts, related to national defense activities outside of the U.S.
• Employees involved in a contract for the sale of military equipment, materials, or services to allies of the U.S. under the Foreign Assistance Act, provided the activities take place overseas.
• Employees working for American employers that provide welfare or similar services outside the U.S. for the benefit of the armed forces. Some examples include employees of the American Red Cross and the United Service Organization (USO).

To give a little context, there are a number of companies that are well known for providing private contracting services to the U.S. government overseas. These companies must ensure that they follow the rules of The Defense Base Act so that their employees can have workers’ compensation protection. The companies include:

• Blackwater
• Halliburton
• Bechtel
• Dyncorp
• Global Linguist Solutions

What Kind of Benefit Does The Defense Base Act Provide?

If you are injured in the course of your duties, then you are entitled to the following benefits and compensation:

• Medical treatment, including psychological treatment
• Compensation for disability
• Lost wages
• Vocational rehabilitation

If you are killed in the course of your duties, the DBA also provides death benefits for your loved ones.

To ensure that you were, in fact, injured in the course of your duties, your employer can ask that a doctor examine you to confirm that you need treatment and benefits. The DBA will cover the costs of treatment, prescriptions, rehabilitation, and even travel to the doctor.

What Are the Basics of Making a Defense Base Act Claim?

In the event of an injury, the DBA requires the person report the injury to his or her supervisor immediately. The injured person must also give written notice of the injury within 30 days, which will trigger the employer to offer medical treatment.

It is important to note that the injured employee is also responsible for filing an official claim with the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs within one year of the date of injury or the last payment of compensation, whichever is later. If the claim involves occupational injury (i.e., a condition that worsens over time, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or lung disease from breathing in fumes), then the employee has two years to file an official claim from the date the employee discovered that the injury was related to his or her employment.

How Are Compensation Payments Administered, and What is AWW?

In addition to providing compensation for medical treatment, the DBA may also provide compensation for lost wages. If you are disabled for more than three days, you may be compensated with loss of earnings. A person is typically compensated at the rate of 2/3 his or her “average weekly wage” (AWW).

Determining someone’s AWW could be easy if the person worked continuously for a year prior with the employer. All you need to do take the person’s actual wages and divide that by 52. However, if the person did not work a substantial amount in the prior year then the AWW might be slightly more difficult to ascertain.

What is important to know about the AWW, however, is that it forms the basis of both temporary and permanent disability compensation. You want to make sure that you arrive at the maximum AWW possible. So, it is vital that you get a Defense Base Act attorney to help you with DBA claims.
