Paper Abstract

New laser technologies challenge the established laser workhorses. The strengths and weaknesses of some of the major players for material processing will be covered. Applications and comparisons will be covered with results in the areas of cutting, welding, and metal deposition. Capability, trends and performance needs for the future will be included for industrial applications.
