During more than 50 years of the existence, lasers have been proved as the unique tool for diverse material processing application. New application ideas, coming from universities and research institutions, are implemented usually by spin-off companies with limited resources for market penetration. Research laboratories are using universal tools (laser machines), while the effective and low-cost production requires adaptation of the processes and equipment during the technology assessment phase by the end-user. The process and equipment go jointly.
