Press release date: June 9, 2006

DEARBORN, Mich., June 9, 2006 - The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) today announced Susan Sprentall as its Industrial Laser Community Relations Manager.

"The group's goal is to channel the energy of competitors to work together in promoting the use of lasers in the manufacturing arena" says Sprentall, who also operates American Laser Management Co., Inc. "Removing the mysteries of laser processing along with uniting the number of exhibitions and conferences is a task each ILG company initially identified, but concluded working together is more efficient and cost effective. However, to accomplish our goals will take more resources than the volunteer efforts can assemble, by aligning our group with SME we will move this effort exponentially."

The Industrial Laser Group is represented as the Industrial Laser Community within SME's Technical Community Network. The Technical Community Network provides a flexible framework for meeting the current information needs of manufacturing engineers and their companies. The network consists of eight technical communities that represent key knowledge areas within the manufacturing enterprise. Each community includes a number of highly focused tech groups addressing specific processes, methods or applications of manufacturing technology. The Industrial Laser Community is expected to include tech groups for medical, welding, marking, and other areas.

For more Information: Letters of invitation and membership applications are being sent to all laser technology suppliers. For more information contact SME customer service at (800) 733-4763 or email
