Even after the 50th anniversary of the laser invention and about the same time this unique tool is used in industry the improvement of the beam material interaction is still ongoing, at universities, research institutes and inside the R and D facilities of companies. Sometimes the focus of this work is different. Whereas one side is trying to understand the science and physical coherences, the other hand side’s goal is to succeed with a unique selling point with a user benefit of this technology. But despite these differences, the ultimate goal is to approve, lasers to be conventional tools and remain competitive to other technologies or even extend or exceed the technological borders. This contribution of Precitec to the LASE 2018 will try to demonstrate the recent technical innovations developed inhouse. These new features, one in the area of laser cutting will be briefly described technically but the main part of the paper will show the benefits of these devices.
