The Laser Systems Product Group (LSPG) of AMT—The Association for Manufacturing Technology reports that 2004 shipments for industrial laser equipment and systems jumped 52 percent versus 2003. The group tracks shipments by 41 reporting companies, which combined logged sales of $457 million within North America, plus another $183 million worth of exports. Shipments spiked in the second half of the year, due in part to the Capital Expensing Allowance, according to LSPG chairman Dave Plourde.
