Industrial laser applications can be divided into two categories depending on the power of the laser: material processing and micromaterial processing.

In materials processing, lasers with an average optical power of over 1 kilowatt are primarily used for industrial material processing applications. Optical thermal states that occur above this power threshold set these lasers apart from their lower-power counterparts.

Micromaterial processing is a category that includes all laser material processing applications below 1 kilowatt. The use of lasers in the processing of micro-materials has a wide range of applications in the field of development and manufacturing in the industry.

The compatibility in laser beam character, high monochromaticity and reaching extremely high powers are features that enable these unique applications.

each material reacts differently to the laser according to its ability to absorb light; each type of laser has a different wavelength that determines the laser and its effects, and the result of all this is solved specifically for the application.

The most common industrial applications are laser marking, laser engraving/engraving, laser cutting, laser welding, laser drilling, laser coating, additive manufacturing, laser hardening, laser cleaning, laser decoating, laser ablation, laser perforation.
