What: MegaRust 2024

When: May 21-23, 2024

Where: Marriott Mission Valley (8757 Rio San Diego Dr., San Diego, CA 92108)

Booth: 12

The conference provides an impartial forum for dialogue between government organizations, commercial organizations and providers of corrosion control products, processes, technologies and solutions. Participants include representatives from military, industry, and government organizations involved with research, design, engineering, construction, maintenance, modernization and the operation of naval systems affected by corrosion.

At MegaRust, Laser Photonics and its affiliated company, Fonon Technologies, will present a selection of laser systems, including the newest version of Laser Photonics’ CleanTech Handheld LPC-1500-AC, which has been updated to a much smaller and more portable form factor. The co-hosts will also highlight the DefenseTech 100M-MRLS laser cleaning system, an innovative technology targeting the needs of defense industry professionals. Lastly, LPC and Fonon Technologies will showcase the DefenseTech Blaster Cabinet DT-50-BC, DefenseTech Handheld DT-200-MRLS, and the DefenseTech Handheld DT-2000 MRLS defense-focused laser systems, which are manufactured by Laser Photonics and sold to the defense industry by Fonon Technologies.

Government fleet professionals will have the chance to learn how LPC’s technology can help with rust control, corrosion and coating removal, optimizing MRO processes and streamlining inventory maintenance. LPC will also talk about its full portfolio of industrial-grade laser systems for material processing, including WeldTech systems for laser welding and others.
