JK Lasers, Rugby, Warwickshire, UK, has released the newly enhanced JK604D laser, a staple tool for the percussion drilling and trepanning of a selection of components in the automotive and aerospace industries.
The laser has been designed to offer outstanding peak power levels, maximum pulse energy and an improved beam quality. The beam is capable of producing high quality hole profiles, while the high intensity laser spots allow for fast laser drilling.
A new resonator design provides a much wider operating window than previous drilling lasers in this class, allowing users a more flexible approach to manufacturing parameters and shorter times to optimise a new process.
In addition to the physical advantages, the enhanced JK604D can be integrated with the unique JK LaserView technology, allowing for tighter process control and complete cycle programming triggered by a single command. Manufacturers can also benefit from reduced costs when utilising the pulse shaping feature via JK Lasers’ patented switch-mode power supply.
