4 Preface & acknowledgments In 1990, the editors of the Industrial Laser Annual Handbook celebrated 25 years of growth in this segment of laser technology. After completing the fifth edition of the handbook, the editors decided that the industry and technology had matured to the point where biennial publication would be more appropriate. Recognizing the spread of industrial technology beyond the major producing nations, the editors also decided to associate with a publisher with international standing in the fields of engineering and science. This edition ofthe renamed Industrial Laser Handbook, then, is the first in a continuing series of such handbooks to be published by Springer-Verlag on an every-other-year basis. Readers of the first five editions of the handbook will note that this new edition retains the same structure. Changes, while many, are mainly in production of the book and improvements in presentation. The economic review and technical forecast has been expanded to cover 1991 and the period Because of the length of this period, the editors have reduced the detailed analysis of the preceding year because this information is better placed in other, more frequently published, media. Section 1 has been overhauled to present new processing data, much of it in updated formats. It remains our intention that data presented is general enough to cover the most popular applications and materials for the widest readership. Wherever possible we have asked contributors to provide us with practical, rather than laboratory, process rate data. Section 2 reflects a change in editorial philosophy. After presenting the basics of industrial lasers, systems, and applications in the preceding five editions, the editors asked the editorial panel to submit articles for this section focused on the practical applications served by industrial lasers. We are indebted to our outstanding panel of experts, who have presented original articles for the continuing education of our readers. Section 3, the supplier directory, contains the industry's most comprehensive listing of international companies supplying laser goods and services. Readers of previous editions of the handbook tell us that this section is their most-used reference source. Section 4, related products, narrows the field of companies that support industrial lasers by identifying only those vendors that concentrate on this sector. Thus, as with past editions, and with editions to come, the handbook provides a constantly changing review of industrial laser technology. Intended to be a growing set of references, the handbook will continually add new reference information in a timely manner. The editors enjoy the invaluable assistance of a number of people who are necessary in compiling an international publication. We especially thank our associates at the Advanced Technology Group of Penn Well Publishing Co.: Linda Wright, publisher of Industrial Laser Review, who served as production liaison; Kathy Kincade, managing editor; Mary Williams, directory coordinator; and the graphic arts staff who provided us with professional support. We also thank the staff at our new publisher, Springer Verlag, for their patience and understanding during the transition. As always, we are indebted to our corporate sponsors in the industrial laser industry, whose support is vital to the preparation and publication of this handbook. David A. Belforte Morris Levitt
