SPI Lasers, Southampton, U.K., will unveil four new products at the Laser World of Photonics in Munich from May 23 to 26 2011.

The new product launches cover all areas of SPI’s portfolio, including additions to the redPOWER® brand with 500 to 1 kW OEM fiber lasers and an extension to the R4 product family with a new 500 W fiber laser. The redENERGY® family brand has been further developed to include the next generation fiber laser platform, G4, which offers fiber lasers from 10 to 70 W and builds upon SPI’s highly popular G3 MOPA range, bringing new levels of flexibility and performance. In addition, a new redENERGY product has been added to the brand, a redENERGY GREEN pulsed laser.

SPI’s high power OEM fiber laser systems offer integrators the capability to manufacture equipment for cutting and welding applications in the industrial MACRO sector with scalable output powers. They allow the integrator the ability to differentiate their product by customizing the optical and electronic control interface performance and functionality for the specific application. Design features within the SPI OEM laser include thermal management, high output power stability, and power and temperature monitoring with an optical resonator based on SPI’s proprietary GTWave™ technology. The lasers are available with power levels up to 1 kW with single mode output. The integrator can aggregate the power using commercially available solutions. The increase in average power capability is reflected in the addition of a 500 W laser to SPI’s established R4 family of CW and modulated lasers.

The redENERGY G4 range uses the combination of SPI’s directly modulated, semiconductor seed laser, GTWave amplification and PulseTune™ technology. The new platform offers extended control features and is more compact and energy efficient. The extension to higher average powers and further enhancements of optical parameters allow the user broader process and application capabilities. Incorporating a new beam delivery optic, the new G4 platform enables an easy plug & play system interface across the range. Operating in the nanosecond pulse duration regime, these lasers are widely used for various marking and micromachining operations, offering users versatility and flexibility.
