November / December 2020

The new issue of Shop Floor Lasers is now live. For the last issue of 2020, we cover the latest in laser technology, including automation, to help manufacturers keep up with today’s productivity demands. Automation is also covered in our second feature on tower storage systems. Even shops that might not think they’re big enough for a tower system should consider the benefits to beat out the competition.

Our article on fiber lasers relates how a manufacturer in Iowa diversifies to stay relevant, including making technology investments in new laser cutting equipment. Finally, our piece on a laser hybrid welding system for thick materials explains how it produces consistent weld quality at increased welding speeds.
