The article presents a study that investigates the advantages of using carbon dioxide laser in automotive interiors manufacturing applications. According to the author, laser is an ideal tool in interior applications because it does not require downtime and replacements. The study reveals that using laser process increases in the areas of on-metallic panels and components which owe its success to the advancement of laser sources that offer quality performance and reliability features.
