RUGBY, England, Jan. 7, 2013 — A 3-kW fiber laser has been launched by JK Lasers.
The new addition to the company’s Watt to kiloWatt fiber laser range enhances manufacturing productivity by processing thicker section metals at faster speeds and to higher standards.
Delivering stable output power from switch-on, it features a consistent focused spot size and beam profile over the complete power range. It is fitted with proprietary detachable plug-in, pre-aligned beam delivery fibers, offering core diameters from 100 µm, providing maximum versatility when processing difficult-to-access areas.
Applications include remote laser welding in high-volume automotive assemblies.
The company says that the laser is up to 10 times more energy-efficient than Nd:YAGs of a similar power level. The individual laser pump sources have a 300,000-h mean time to failure.
Other benefits include user-friendly software, fast modulation, pulse shaping, and proprietary and patented backreflection protection to shield the laser from damaging reflected light when processing highly reflective materials such as aluminum, copper, brass and gold.
