JK Lasers (part of the GSI Group), Rugby, Warwickshire, UK, plans to enhance its portfolio of fiber laser products with the introduction of its JK1000FL high power 1kW fiber laser. Its presence will provide a new level of power and control for industrial cutting, welding and drilling applications.
The laser, which has been developed at the company's headquarters in Rugby, UK, will incorporate many of the features seen in the lower power models, including high brightness, fast modulation, pulse shaping, processing heads and integrated FiberView software.
One of the laser's most notable features will be its beam switch capability, enabling time and energy sharing of the laser output between a maximum of four fibers. This will provide an enhanced level of flexibility to the laser user.
The 1kW fiber laser will be offered as a truly industrial package with applications support and sample processing included, ensuring manufacturers get the most from their laser.
