  • Auto Parts Supplier Orders IPG Fiber Lasers
Jan 2007
IPG Photonics Corp. announced today it has received an order from an automotive parts supplier for 10 1000-watt fiber lasers used to cut hydroform parts. The supplier selected IPG's lasers, after a year of production testing, to replace the diode-pumped crystal rod lasers it previously used, IPG photonics said. The units are expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2007. Hydroform parts, shaped by ultrahigh-pressure water, are used as structural components in trucks and SUVs and provide advantages over alternatives such as stamping and welding, IPG said.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
