Newport Corp.’s Spectra-Physics Lasers division (Mountain View, California, USA; www.newport.com
) has introduced its first industrial fibre laser product, the Alliant Fiber Laser. The rugged and compact 100-W infrared laser features high single-mode beam quality and wall-plug efficiency that delivers maximum power at a focussed point. The fibre laser’s intense brightness is suited for high-precision industrial machining applications such as cutting, spot and seam welding and metal sintering.
“Our OEMs and industrial system integrators have asked us to leverage the Newport Spectra-Physics expertise and vertical structure into a reliable fibre laser product,” says Scott White, Senior Manager of Product Marketing for Newport’s Spectra-Physics Lasers Division.
The Spectra-Physics Alliant fibre laser features flexible power control for continuous wave to modulated operating mode for application-specific requirements. The Alliant is based on the company’s ProLite Xt high-brightness laser diodes that offer high reliability, brightness and power. Tested for continuous operation, the new fibre laser is designed for reliable and long-lifetime operation in rigorous, industrial environments. Packaged in a rugged, rack-mount enclosure, the laser is designed for easy integration into industrial systems.
