EAST GRANBY, CT –January 24, 2012– Nufern, a leading U.S. manufacturer of specialty optical fibers, fiber lasers and amplifiers and fiber optic gyro coils, announced today it will introduce a new family of NuFIRETM precision high beam quality low power industrial fiber lasers at SPIE Photonics West.
This latest additional family, starting at 10W, broadens the growing NuQTM series of air-cooled Q-switched fiber lasers and it is also based on the same highly successful industry standard platform as the 20W, 30W & 50W pulsed fiber lasers. NuFIRETM precision CW lasers feature the same fast turn-on time to maximize production throughput, and delivers excellent beam quality from an industry standard OEM footprint ensuring compatibility across all the available products. Nufern believes this family of CW lasers “will offer new and existing fiber laser customers a complete OEM product line spanning multiple power levels to better meet their application requirements” says Dr. Bryce Samson, VP of Business Development.
Featuring an excellent beam quality, the NuFIRETM lasers deliver more working power per output Watt than other lasers in its class. The laser offers a widely adjustable operating range of output power, and is easily modulated making it useful for a variety of micro machining, micro cutting, marking, and other applications. It emits zero bleed-through power when gated off to eliminate ghost lines, even on sensitive materials.
The rugged, air cooled, monolithic architecture is pumped by highly reliable single emitter diode technology for extremely long life expectancy with no maintenance requirements. The laser comes complete with a 5m armored fiber delivery cable and precision optical collimator as standard. It is powered by a simple 24V universal power supply through an industry standard 25-pin interface, for simple drop-in replacement of existing systems.
