AKRON (Sept. 14)—Jet Lasersystemes GmbH will enter the U.S. by opening a Detroit sales office in 2001 and possibly building upon that initial site in the future, a company spokesman said. The firm introduced its In-Press Laser Mold Cleaning technology at the International Tire Exhibition and Conference, held Sept. 12-14 in Akron. Jet Lasersystemes said using the laser process allows manufacturers to reduce cleaning times from eight to 12 hours to 45 to 90 minutes with ten minutes of labor. Laser usage helps eliminate the abrasion that typically causes mold wear, the firm said.
