IPG Photonics has appointed Shawn Murphy, an industry veteran with more than 30 years in the industrial laser business, as regional sales manager for the Southeastern United States. Murphy has vast experience selling industrial lasers and systems to OEMs, integrators, and end users, most recently with Electrox.
'I am excited to be joining such a forward thinking organization as IPG,' states Murphy, 'and I believe that our fibre lasers will continue to offer considerable benefits compared to older laser technologies. Fibre lasers have proven themselves in numerous applications in all industries, and because of their reliability, high beam quality, high efficiency, small footprint, and lower total cost of ownership, they will continue to gain acceptance and increase market share. Fibre lasers have already become the tool of choice for many marking, welding, cutting, drilling, and cladding applications and as more companies become aware of their capabilities this will only increase.'
