Lasers are used to mark, drill, cut, and weld virtually every type of metal as well as many plastics and ceramics. EWI’s engineers and technicians utilize Hybrid Laser Welding, and High Speed Laser Processing to help customers achieve maximum production efficiencies for applications that require high speed manufacturing and exacting precision.

EWI is known for its laser processing innovations. We developed high-speed video imaging technology to uncover the secrets of high power laser and hybrid laser welding.  We achieved global recognition for high-speed laser welding of thin sheet materials for batteries and fuel cells. We developed an optical device for laser paint stripping that is 200-300% more productive that previous devices.  And we currently operate the highest power (15 kW) fiber-delivered laser available in an independent research environment.
