Augmenting automotive production

Keely Portway looks at some of the latest ways laser surface treatment is being used to optimise automotive production

This Lasea system uses two processing heads to direct two halves of a more powerful, single ultrafast pulse to the workpiece in order to increase processing throughput.

Wielding the increasing average power of ultrafast lasers

Matthew Dale explores the advantages of increasing the average power of ultrafast lasers, and discovers how this higher power can be delivered to the workpiece
