The article reports that LasX Industries Inc. in the U.S. developed a carbon dioxide lasers for 10.25 microns for convenience in manufacturing processes. Bill Dinauer, founder and president of LasX, stated that product cycles is not enough in justifying tools for operations and it enabled the implementation of digital conversion.
