nLIGHT has developed the most compact fiber lasers with up to 10 kW output power. These innovative fiber lasers deliver the highest power available in the smallest size. The combination of high power and compact size gives end users a considerable advantage in shop floor utilization while benefitting from the latest technologies for laser processing performance, reliability, and serviceability. These products also set the stage for future power scaling in small form factors.
The new models are available in power levels from 3 kW to 10 kW with 12 kW and 15 kW models planned for the first quarter of 2019. All nLIGHT high-power fiber lasers incorporate several market-differentiating advantages. Unique hardware protection against back reflections allows uninterrupted processing of reflective metals. The highest modulation rate and power stability deliver larger process windows and higher productivity. End users also enjoy high uptime due to proven, trusted components, and rapid field serviceability.
The fiber lasers will be on display at two upcoming industry tradeshows: EuroBLECH, October 22 – 26 in Hannover, Germany; and FABTECH, November 6 – 8 in Atlanta, Georgia.
