Paper Abstract

Surface treatment by lasers has not become established in industry. In part, this is due to conservative attitudes of users, an unwillingness to adopt new techniques as well as for same applications technical reservations as the side effects of laser treatments are insufficiently understood or documented. There are, nevertheless, a steadily increasing number of applications of lasers in surface engineering. In this paper the possibilities of surface treatment are reviewed and some examples of industrial applications given. Three types of laser are available: CO2, Nd:YAG, and Excimer laser. In this paper we restrict the discussion to CO2 lasers.
