The article focuses on the application of three-dimensional (3D) laser processing to support machine utilization of VIA Lasertec GmbH & Co.KG in Germany. Ralf Polzin, business manager of VIA Lasertec, explained that they used two-dimensional (2D) process but they do not obtain with large numbers of unit. In 1998, the company was founded purely and simply for three-dimensional laser processing by several automotive suppliers.
