MONROVIA, Calif., Dec. 8, 2015 — Amada Miyachi America Inc. has announced the LF series of fiber lasers for precision microwelding. The LF series can be focused to spot sizes as small as 10 μm, and offers precise control of pulse width and peak power to control the weld parameters. The lasers are available in either single-mode or multimode versions. An internal air-to-water cooling mechanism ensures high power and pulse-to-pulse stability irrespective of ambient air temperature. The lasers may be operated in either modulated or CW mode, offering all the features necessary for control of the weld, including pulse shaping with up to 10 segments, and seam mode with ramp-up and ramp-down capabilities. Typical applications include the welding of flexure arms on hard disk drives, medical spring attachment and medical component assembly.
