JK Lasers (part of the GSI Group), Rugby, Warwickshire, UK, will be participating in the 2011 Laser World of Photonics exhibition in Munich, Germany. During the event, due to be held at the Neue Messe München from May 23 to 26, 2011, JK Lasers will showcase a number of its newest products, including a 1 kW fiber laser, a 500 W fiber laser, and the JK System 5000.
The JK System 5000 is a flexible workstation that can be integrated with lasers from the JK Fiber and Nd:YAG ranges. With a variety of customizable options including linear and rotary axes, process tools and scan heads, and proprietary software closely coupling motion and laser control, it provides a highly versatile solution for many industrial cutting, welding and drilling applications. A 400 W modulated, air-cooled JK fiber laser will be integrated into the system, to demonstrate a combined metal cutting and welding operation on a single part, made from a material that is typically used for industrial applications.
This mid-power, air-cooled fiber laser is suited to a wide variety of industrial manufacturing and precision applications. It can be used with a selection of JK processing heads and combines single mode fiber beam delivery, high efficiency, and patented processing technologies without requiring a cooling water supply for operation.
While at the exhibition, JK Lasers also plans to launch a new addition to the JK fiber laser range. The new JK500FL will enable manufacturers to process a range of materials with high accuracy at a quicker rate.
Similar to the other products in the JK FL range, the 500 W fiber laser will require minimal maintenance and will be supplied in a rack-mounted format, providing enhanced efficiency in the workplace.
Visitors interested in any of JK Lasers’ Nd:YAG lasers, fiber lasers or associated products are invited to visit the JK Lasers booth # C1.466.
