In making the announcement, Bill Kallgren, sales manager, said, "The IX-100-C allows R&D researchers, job shops, or universities a single tool which can be used with any number of lasers and laser types. The system can easily be configured for excimer, DPSS and ultrafast lasers on a single platform. Due to the high accuracy of the IX-100-C, the user can quickly and fully exploit the laser being used and experience rapid development of laser applications and process parameters."
Two recent press releases give encouragement to those associated with the fabricating industry--both related to this year's EuroBlech show in Hanover. The first is from the show organizers, who point out that records were set in exhibitors, show floor space, and attendees, sending a powerful message that a basic industry, metal fabricating, at least for the short term, is confounding the experts by showing such strength.
