Paper Abstract

Widespread employment of industrial lasers in manufacturing operations has occurred as a result of the technical and economic advantages of the processes. This paper discusses the positive economic factors which singly, or in combination, justify the purchase of a laser for a manufacturing application. Examples of recent industrial installations are cited as evidence of the cost effectiveness of laser processing.
