In a constantly evolving laser industry, new and innovative applications of laser radiation are emerging – in scope as well as in numbers. While pulsed lineshaped laser beams are already well established as mainstream manufacturing tools in the production of flat panel displays, continuous-wave line beam processes are still in their infancy. Nevertheless, they have shown great potential in research & development laboratories as well as in pilot plants for various thermal material processing applications.
