Industrial Lasers – Changing Today's Manufacturing Scene
After more than four decades of growth as a materials processing tool, industrial lasers are now a key factor as global manufacturers advance their production operations. Long surpassing its early days as a nonconventional alternative to established material processing operations, a new generation of reliable, robust and cost-effective lasers - led by fiber and ultra-fast pulse lasers integrated into sophisticated tools for use in industrial environments - are now advancing manufacturing technology enabling companies to bring higher quality, higher precision parts into the market. As these companies take their production capabilities to new highs to meet the demands of ‘lean’ manufacturing - so important to their financial success - they rely on lasers that offer a technical and financial benefit in advanced material processing.
