Anyone following the laser space realizes that the laser world is changing quickly. Laser prices are dropping, especially for fiber and diode lasers, fiber lasers are replacing other types of lasers, as are diode lasers, and Chinese lasers are slowly entering the market. If that wasn’t enough, also consider that additive manufacturing is starting to get traction in some areas, and in these areas, this can really be a game changer. This year almost 10% of lasers sold for additive manufacturing applications were 1KW or higher power, so the numbers are not only increasing the laser powers are as ...
