Summary

Lasers have been mainstays in manufacturing for decades — and every day seems to bring headlines announcing new uses or new models. In April, Manufacturing Engineering magazine published a special section looking at the current state of industrial lasers that are carrying out traditional processes like cutting, welding and brazing as well as enabling more novel applications. This webinar will amplify the key elements of that report while also updating the series with some of the latest developments in laser types, applications, research and markets.

Among the topics this webinar will address are:

  • The flurry of laser company acquisitions in 2016 and their aftermath
  • The latest earnings and market data for key laser suppliers
  • Survey of primary laser types: CO2, fiber, disk, diode, excimer, ultrafast
  • Laser-driven applications including silicon annealing for mobile displays, scanning to reverse engineer aircraft parts, ablation of super-hard materials for cutting tools
  • R&D and collaborations to watch
