Lasers have been used in industrial environments since the 1960's. Below are published articles regarding industrial and commercial laser usage, with the articles ordered in reverse chronological order. In contrast, the photographs relate broadly to lasers, and for the most part are ordered in chronological order.

Production boom-but not in jobs; Better machines; 17% fewer workers by KATE RYAN. 900 words. 12 July 2004. Crain's Chicago Business. Volume 27; Number 28. (c) 2004 Crain Communications, Inc. All rights reserved. Chicago-area factories, and those around the nation, are boosting productivity so aggressively that the manufacturing sector is poised this summer to eclipse its record June 2000 output with 17% fewer workers. ``We've never experienced growth like this and we've done it without adding employees,'' says Mark Miller, CEO of Prince Industries Inc., a Carol Stream-based industrial components maker. Prince supplies Caterpillar Inc. and Zebra Technologies Corp. It replaced eight temporary employees with a new Swedish laser cutting machine that runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The new way is advanced automation: you don't stop the night train at Nu-way.(sheetmetal fabrication) by Lorincz, Jim. 1,660 words. 1 May 2004. Tooling & Production. ISSN: 0040-9243; Volume 70; Issue 5. Copyright 1994-2012 Information Access Company. All rights reserved. Steve Southwell pretty much sums up the way many American manufacturers in the fabricating and metalforming industries regard the competition from low-cost manufacturing countries like China: "How are you going to compete with companies that have labor costs of pennies an hour, all the workers they need, and a government with a desire to put them all to work--even if it's just pushing buttons for elevators?" he asks. Southwell, who is president and CEO of Nu-Way Industries Inc., Des Plaines, IL, quickly adds that the answer for U.S. manufacturers is found in adopting automation that leads to unmanned operation--as much as possible. "It's the only way to minimize the impact of the advantage in labor costs that these overseas manufacturers enjoy," he says.
