Industrial diode lasers optimized to reduce cost and size for plastic welding and soldering applications
Vancouver, WA USA January 21, 2009 – nLIGHT Corporation (nLIGHT) announced today the introduction of Pearl™ fiber-coupled diode laser products specifically designed for industrial applications such as plastic welding and soldering that require bright power in a small, rugged package.
nLIGHT’s Pearl™ fiber-coupled diode laser series with nXLT™ single emitter diodes has redefined industry benchmarks for reliability and efficiency. Pearl™ comes standard with a two year warranty and can be configured for a four year warranty.
Configurations are available at 915, 940 and 980 nanometer (nm) wavelengths with up to 100 watts (W) power from 200 to 800 micron (µm) PowerCore™ fiber. An optional pilot beam is also available.
“Industry-leading efficiency of greater than 50 percent significantly reduces system cooling requirements, minimizes costs, and increases reliability,” stated Joe DeBartolo, nLIGHT VP Sales and Marketing. “Pearl™ enables energy efficient laser systems with lower cost of ownership.”
nXLT™ diode technology enables long lifetime even with harsh industrial conditions and repeated on/off cycles. PowerCore™ fiber provides consistent beam quality and power transmission independent of fiber layout and movement.
nLIGHT will be highlighting the Pearl™ materials processing diode laser series at Photonics West in San Jose, CA on January 27 - 29 at booth #1843.
