The article features the development of the laser hole drilling technology in the U.S. Laser hole drilling advantages have surpassed the benefits of the traditional methods. Besides that it is far more accurate, it lessens the manufacturing cost of the companies. In 2006, so far the laser drilling industry has recorded the laser drilling head nanosecond lasers as the most advanced. Possible enhancements of such technology are found with the enough expenditure of both knowledge and fortune.
