How easy it is to say in one breath : May cost some workers their jobs, this may not be an entirely negative development.

Not unless you are one of the workers.

As for " the some ", that should really be, " the some thousand or more " .

As for the denizens soon to be on the unemployment line.

This laser process will also cause many companies to go belly up.

Such is the price of progress.

Progress will always carry a tax and those fixtured in complacently indeed will pay the Lions Share of the tax. So Lasers deliver efficiency both in production, and in a Green Process. The discussion is not about the workers who were utilized in the water/chemical process of the prior process losing jobs....the discussion is "how do we migrate them to the newer process"? Laser Additive is a great example....3D printing in metal is reducing weight by 25/30%, increasing strength and translating to a fuel savings of about $1million a plane......great for the environment! Yet...the machinist to be utilized for finishing the components are woefully missing.......great opportunity for the training and education of this quickly developing need.
