Convergent Photonics manufactures three types of lasers for industrial purposes: CO2, Nd:YAG and fiber. The lasers are used in the automotive, aerospace, transportation and energy sectors.
There is quite a bit of competition in the industrial laser field, Operations Manager Michele Ronco notes. “Especially now with the fiber laser,” he says. “The technology has become widely accessible to more competitors, especially overseas. There is a big stress on price and performance.”
