Robot welding. Technician operates a welding laser on a robotic arm. The laser is being used to weld glass fibre and plastic onto a composite material which has a great heat resistance. The technician is wearing safety goggles which protect his eyes from the laser light. Robots are ideally suited for manufacturing as they can perform repeat operations almost endlessly and their rate can be set to match the speed of the production line. A laser produces an intense beam of light which can be used to heat objects so that they can be welded together.
