This fiber laser system ensures fast processing, consistently high productivity, more energy efficiency and more cost effectiveness compared to CO2 lasers, especially in metal cutting and welding.
The1 kW JenLas® fiber cw 1000 fiber laser from Jenoptik Laser GmbH (Jena, Germany) is a highly brilliant single-mode high power fiber laser system, featuring excellent power stability and long lifetime. This fiber laser ensures fast processing and consistently high productivity in the respective applications.
This laser system is a continuous wave laser with an output power of 1,000 watts. Compared to the other laser sources such as CO2 lasers, fiber lasers are more energy-efficient and thus, more cost-effective especially in such industrial applications as metal cutting and welding.
“Fiber lasers are already available on the market within a large variety of power ranges. However, our know-how in the fields of diode lasers, fiber laser pump sources, laser sources and processing optics establishes a unique environment for creating substantial customer value,” says Dr. Thomas Fehn, the executive vice president of the Jenoptik Lasers & Material Processing division. He adds, “Our in-depth knowledge on all those technical stages combined with our extensive experience with the application itself enables our customers to seamlessly and flexibly integrate our fiber lasers into the respective systems.”
Optimized for use within customers’ laser processing systems, this OEM laser source comes in a compact 19 in housing and includes the operating software. The device safety lock that is made of certified components ensures operational safety. The laser has several user interfaces such as RS232, EtherCAT, USB port or and a parallel customer-specific interface. www.jenoptik.com/lm
