I’ve been hearing quite frequently recently about fiber lasers in both scientific and business and was wondering are they the real deal and about to transform industry as I often hear? I don’t really understand fiber laser technology well but was wondering what their common uses are? What applications in industry do fiber lasers tend to get used for, I’m guessing there are quite a few applications so any you’ve heard of would be appreciated?
What type of traditional manufacturing techniques and processes are being replaced due to fiber lasers? Are they cost-effective and actually benefitting industry right now or are they more something for the future? Do fiber lasers need skilled operators to operate in the workplace? Any help would be gratefully appreciated as we’re always looking for ways at work to innovate and drive cost efficiencies.
