Fiber lasers; eco credentials
IPG Photonics is increasingly targeting its fiber laser products at applications outside of the company's traditional cash-cow deployments in steel-cutting machine tools. Key areas now include electric vehicle battery welding and foil cutting, solar cell production, additive manufacturing, and urology. The firm's hand-held laser welder is also said to be proving popular, with sales close to doubling year-on-year. Photo: Messe M√ľnchen/Holger Rauner
