Farmingdale, NY - EB Industries, a provider of electron beam welding, laser welding, and laser hermetic sealing services since 1965, has recently expanded its capabilities by adding an IPG PhotonicsYLS-4000 Nd:YAG continuous wave (CW) Ytterbium fiber laser to its processing line.

The new laser has power ratings to 4 kW with both CW and pulsed operating modes. Included with the acquisition are a number of different fibers, weld heads, and associated optics, allowing for focused spot sizes from 50 to 1000 microns. With a wall-plug efficiency greater than 30%, the new laser supports EB Industries’ dedication to efficient, environmentally friendly technology.

EB Industries has been addressing customer’s joining needs for over 49 years by utilizing high-voltage electron beam technology as well as lower powered pulsed lasers.
