SOUTHAMPTON, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SPI Lasers, a leading designer and manufacturer of fiber lasers, today announced it would be unveiling 4 new products at the Laser World of Photonics, Munich 23-26th May 2011, C2-141. The new product launches cover all areas of SPI’s portfolio including additions to the redPOWER® brand with 500-1kW OEM fiber lasers and an extension to the R4 product family with a new 500W fiber laser. The redENERGY® family brand has been further developed to include the next generation fiber laser platform, G4, which offers fiber lasers from 10-70W 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 well established proprietary GTWave™ technology. The lasers are available with power levels up to 1kW 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 500W laser to SPI’s established R4 family of CW and modulated lasers.
The redENERGY® G4 range uses the proven combination of SPI’s directly modulated, semiconductor seed laser, GTWave™ amplification and PulseTune™ technology. The new platform offers extended control features, 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 micro-machining operations, offering users versatility and flexibility.
SPI’s new redENERGY® GREEN laser source is for micro-machining and specialist marking applications. The redEnergy® GREEN laser provides 200µJ pulses at 532nm and is designed for system integrators and OEM’s to offer a solution to customers in such fields as photovoltaics, semi-conductor, electronics, manufacturing, polymer and ceramic marking.
David Parker, CEO of SPI Lasers added "The benefits of using fiber lasers in industrial manufacturing are now widely accepted and SPI are working with customers to extend the ability to move into new applications and industries. In order to create a complete fiber laser product portfolio there is always a requirement to increase power and functionality. The addition of a 1kW OEM fiber laser, the new G4 pulsed platform and a green 532nm laser enable SPI to maintain its position as one of the global leaders in laser production. We have made significant progress and investments into developing our application research, product engineering and development to support our new product launches and continue to see new areas for growth.
