This article focuses on the "Advanced Laser Applications Conference & Exhibition," of the year 2005. The conference was held at Ann Arbor, Michigan during September 19-21. More than 150 people attended the conference. The opening day of the conference was dedicated to tutorials on subjects ranging from the basics of laser processing to applications presented by individuals. The bulk of the meeting was devoted to two days of technical sessions and the accompanying exposition. The session on laser cutting demonstrated the significant advances that have been seen in recent years, including increased use of CAD/CAM for productivity improvement.
