I've been asked to talk about the high powered CO2 market in the United States, which I've defined as being 500 W and greater. About ten days ago I received some inforraation from Production magazine with regards to their 1991-92 capital equipment survey. Several years ago iayself and other people coerced them to start asking questions about the laser industry and laser materials processing. The latest information won't be out for several months yet came to ne first. The results show that there were several interesting trend lines that are developing in the marketplace that I thought would be of value to this group. I think that you're going to see some trends in this survey of over three thousand respondents, representing about 10% of the questionnaires that Production sent out. The resulting information is pretty insightful in terms of what 1991 and 92 looks like and so what I'd like to do is relay that to you.
