HAMBURG, Germany, April 29, 2013 — The Rofin Macro Group has enhanced its FL series fiber lasers with the compact 2-kW FL 020. Suitable for cutting, welding, surface-modification and scanner-based applications, the system can be equipped with up to four fiber outputs and requires less water. Switchable 100- to 800-μm-diameter optical fibers provide beam quality that can be precisely adapted to the processing task. The 1-μm wavelength achieves high absorption in many materials. The laser comes in a wall-mountable housing. The Rofin control unit (RCU), which is compatible with a variety of industrial control systems, features an integrated solution, eliminating the need for a separate controller for the scanner head.
