Applied Energetics Announces Opening Of Laser Applications Center


TUCSON, Arizona.— September 8, 2011 — Applied Energetics, Inc., (NASDAQ:AERG) announced today that its advanced technology Laser Applications Center in Tucson is open and available for customer demonstrations. The Applications Center contains the Company’s newest high energy, high average power Ultra Short Pulse (USP) laser system demonstration work centers and a Visitor’s Conference Center. The facility is designed to provide commercial and military customers access to the Company’s products and to enable demonstration of the technology for processing of materials, and other customer applications. The new Applications Center provides a unique range of capabilities facilitated by cutting edge USP Laser technology which removes material through ablation without causing heating in the surrounding area.

The latest Applied Energetics (AE) USP laser product line delivers the pulse energy, intensities, and repetition rate required for enabling industrial applications for precision micromachining of metals, ceramics, polymers, glasses and composite materials. The new system is one of the highest performance USP Lasers available on the market. Potential customers will be able to work with Applied Energetics’ engineers in the Applications Center to identify methods and techniques to refine their micromachining processes.

Joseph Hayden, President of AE, commented, "This new Applications Center demonstrates Applied Energetics’ commitment to our customers’ most challenging production and processing requirements. This capability represents one component of our strategic initiative to transition the leading-edge technologies we have developed for our military customers into potential industrial systems that can provide new capabilities to commercial manufacturers. Commercial customers now have the opportunity to utilize our USP Lasers on their own applications and materials, and better understand the capabilities and value that these new systems can bring to their manufacturing processes."

Potential customers can learn more about AE’s USP laser systems and reserve the USPL Applications Center today by calling AE Sales at (520) 261-7213 or emailing lasersales@appliedenergetics.com. Visit our Application Center Webpage for more details and specifications.
