JK Lasers (part of the GSI Group), Rugby, Warwickshire, UK has added the JK500FL fiber laser to its line-up. The JK500FL benefits from 500W CW output powers, single mode beam quality, and patented back reflection protection. These features enable manufacturers to process a range of materials with high accuracy, at a quicker rate.
Approximately 80% of metal cutting is for thicknesses up to 3mm. The JK500FL is well suited to address these applications, giving high cutting speeds, while maintaining a good cut quality. Similar to the other products in the JK FL range, the 500W fiber laser requires minimal maintenance and is supplied in a water-cooled, rack-mounted format, providing enhanced efficiency in the workplace.
The 500W FL has been designed to be a modular system that is fully compatible with the standard range of JK fiber laser process tools for cutting and welding, including the popular scan head system.
