The laser as a tool facilitates the fast and precise material processing such as metals, organic materials and plastics. In combination with modern system engineering, laser technology can be used to respond highly efficiently to current challenges in industry and society. The healthcare sector in particular is currently demanding fast and efficient solutions to compensate for existing supply bottlenecks in personal protective equipment. High priority is given to the protection of special occupational and personal groups. Face shields made of transparent foil, which simultaneously fulfil the central requirement of high wearing comfort, may provide a remedy. The shields, laser-cut according to the state of the art, serve as an efficient example of an industrial solution.
