With all these advantages in mind, the industry is going gung-ho after these machines. Although the initial cost of these machines is not so economical, but it proves really economical in the longer run. The return on investment of the machine is commendable and the surge in production and quality of the products adds feather to the company.
The machine can be used vigorously and continuously. The rugged nature of the machine makes it reliable. This helps in improved performance and reduction in lead time and delay of the lot production. Once installed, the laser machines, be it laser cutter or laser welding machine or the laser soldering machine, all of them have a service period of a minimum of 60,000 hours.
