The article offers world news briefs related to the industrial laser. It notes that additive layer manufacturing (ALM) becomes popular in industrial applications due to its flexible and economical method in arbitrary geometries. The project RobolaSS also reveals its goal of developing new technologies and optimizing established methods for laser material processing. High galvanic corrosion operations between carbon fibers and aluminum encourage the use of titanium alloys with composites.
