LDD recently attended the FABTECH 2014 trade show in Atlanta. With over 1000 exhibitors and 40,000 attendees, it was a very busy show in which lasers made a strong showing. Of greatest note was the growing trend towards smart laser processes that integrate advanced sensor technology, precision optomechanics from companies like Laser Mechanisms and Scansonic and the latest in efficient and reliable laser sources from companies like IPG Photonics and Trumpf. In particular, LDD’s new 3D module had its first showing on the new Laser Mechanisms FiberWELD head. LDD thanks all the particpants that met with us to discuss their applications.
