Hello, my name is Malcolm and this is my new blog. My friends thought that I was insane when I told them I was going to start a manufacturing blog. However, I'm not insane. I am just massively inspired by a trip I made to my father-in-law's factory. I married into an industrial and manufacturing family who run a number of different plants across the country. When I was brought into the family fold I decided to find out about the industry. It was a fascinating experience and I am really pleased to have had it. I hope you like my blog.

Laser cutting refers to the use of a laser to cut, shape and size many different materials during industrial processes. During most laser cutting projects, a powerful laser beam is directed towards the material, and cutting is achieved via melting, burning or vaporising. To increase the efficiency of laser cutting processes, more effective machines need to be used. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming a popular technology for achieving higher quality laser cutting projects. Read More …
