Jenoptik to Present a New Product Line at the Photonics West 2012
|Pressemitteilung von: Jenoptik Lasers & Material Processing|
(openPR) - The Jenoptik Lasers & Material Processing division will introduce its new high beam quality laser source within the kilowatt power range. It will be shown at the Photonics West trade fair, booth 1214, in the south hall of the Moscone Center, San Francisco, USA, from January 24 to 26, 2012.|
Metal Processing with the Jenoptik Fiber Laser JenLas® fiber cw 1000
In order to extend its product range in the field of macro material processing, Jenoptik has developed the first product within the range of kilowatt fiber lasers – the laser source JenLas® fiber cw 1000. This highly brilliant single-mode high-power fiber laser system features high performance stability and a long life time of the laser source. Because of that constantly high productivity is achieved in the respective applications at a high processing speed. Compared to other laser sources such as the CO2 lasers, fiber lasers are more energy-efficient and thus more cost-effective.
The new system of Jenoptik is a cw laser with an output power of 1,000 Watts. “By offering the Jenoptik fiber lasers in conjunction with the added value depth of the Lasers & Material Processing division we are confident to provide our customers with optimal support for successful applications”, says Dr. Thomas Fehn, Executive Vice President of the Jenoptik Lasers & Material Processing division. “Jenoptiks’ know-how in the fields of diode lasers, the fiber laser pump sources, the laser sources and processing optics creates a unique environment for the generation of customer value. Our in-depth knowledge on all of those technological stages and the additional experience with the application enables our customers to flexibly integrate the Jenoptik fiber lasers into their respective systems. We provide our customers with additional support through our worldwide service network“, adds Thomas Fehn.
The fiber laser has been optimized for use in the laser processing systems for example for the industrial applications such as metal cutting and metal welding. The OEM laser source is offered in a compact 19 inch housing, including the corresponding operating software. Operational safety is ensured by a safety lock made of certified components. The laser comes with several user interfaces such as RS232, EtherCAT and USB port. In addition, a parallel customer-specific interface can be used.
The pump diodes needed for the production of the JenLas® fiber cw 1000 fiber laser system are procured internally from the manufacturing plant in Berlin, followed by further processing in Jena. In order to satisfy the increased customers’ demand and to respond to the market developments the plant in Berlin is currently being enlarged.
Launch of the Compact Green Thin-Disk Laser with Improved Output Power on the US Market
Jenoptik introduces to the US market the new diode-pumped, green thin-disk laser JenLas® D2.mini 5/8 W. This further development of the JenLas® D2.x technology provides better beam quality by significantly reduced laser size. The miniaturized version of the product is already in mass production in Jena, Germany.
The laser is available in the power versions of 5 and 8 Watts. This laser source has a proven track record particularly in the medical field. In addition to use of the 3 Watt laser in ophthalmology the laser treatments are now extended to the areas of laser endoscopy and dermatology. This laser is also absolutely suitable for show applications. Additional benefits for the clients also include efficient mass production as well as an easy integration into the end user systems, including those of smaller dimensions.
The production of the green thin-disk laser in Jena is certified to meet the stringent requirements in the area of medical technology. More than 14,000 units of the proven JenLas® D2.x laser had already been manufactured in Jena and are used worldwide. The green lasers emit laser light at 532 nanometers and suit ideally for integration into laser treatment systems.
In addition to the fiber laser JenLas® fiber cw 1000 and the green diode-pumped thin-disk laser JenLas® D2.mini 5/8 W, proven products and further developments from the fields of semiconductor material, diode and solid-state lasers, as well as Jenoptiks’ comprehensive product range in the field of complex optical system solutions will be presented at the Photonics West 2012 as well.
