My discussion here today will cover a couple of areas. It's basically to provide some understanding of the unit volunie of CO7 lasers sold here in the U.S., to be used in what we in the industry call the sheet metal bashing industry. There's really nothing that sophisticated about it. It's kind of a blood and guts industry that has tremendous competition already not only antong laser corapanies but in contpeting with other manufacturing alternatives many of which you saw here at the show. So we want to take a look at that. We want to see front a job shop perspective what factors are affecting the utilization of lasers in job shops today. What does our industry see as a reason for more utilization of lasers here in the U.S.? Perhaps in comparison to what other countries have been subjected to longer than we have.
