  • Better Lasers, Better Machining

Photonics Spectra
May 2016
Greater uptime, faster cutting and increasing affordability make fiber lasers the first choice where CO2 lasers once reigned supreme.

HANK HOGAN, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR, hank.hogan@photonics.com

When it’s time to cut, weld, ablate, mark or otherwise machine materials, manufacturers are increasingly turning to lasers. Falling system costs and better resulting product quality are two reasons why. Still, the need exists to further lower the cost of laser machining while expanding the range of materials that can be handled. For that, there’s progress in fiber and other laser technologies from greater power, more precise processing and new wavelengths. An illustration of
