Continuing SME’s focus on industrial lasers, this webinar picks up where our 2017 session left off. New and evolving technologies and processes like blue lasers, non-pigment-based color marking and nanosecond pulsed welding of dissimilar materials to dissimilar metals are building on the momentum of 2016’s flurry of mergers and high earnings by top laser suppliers. This presentation will amplify the key points detailed in the special laser section of the April issue of Manufacturing Engineering and supplement those articles with industry intel gleaned from SME’s visit to Photonics West, as well as other up-to-the-minute developments.

Among the topics this webinar will address are:

  • New approaches to laser materials processing
  • The race for higher-powered lasers
  • Advances in beam delivery
  • Critical laser market data and trends

  • Speaker
