Industrial laser equipment and systems shipments within North America by the 39 industry companies surveyed totaled $102 million, while exports amounted to $21 million. Cutting applications were the largest source of business activity in the quarter, accounting for more than 50% of all shipments. Marking applications ran second, totaling 18% of all shipments.
