SPI Laser adds 40 W pulsed laser to redENERGY series

SPiI Lasers has announced the addition of a 40 W pulsed fiber laser with peak power in excess of 20 kW to its redENERGY series of lasers for marking a micromachining. The redENERGY fiber lasers are ideal for a wide range of marking applications, including black anneal color marking on stainless steel, paint layer removal on mobile phone keypads, and marking integrated circuits (ICs).

The new higher-mode 40 W version provides unique pulse energy levels, which exceed 1.25 mJ. Applications for this laser include black anneal marking, high speed engraving and "broad brush" materials processing.

PRESS RELEASE

New redEnergy products for Laser 2009

SPI's redENERGY fiber lasers out-perform conventional lasers in marking applications on metal, plastic and other surfaces. They are ideal for a wide range of marking applications including black anneal colour marking on stainless steel, paint layer removal on mobile phone keypads and marking integrated circuits (ICs). The prime differentiator with SPI's redENERGY lasers is the pulse operating range accessed through the 25 selectable waveforms giving a range from CW - 500 kHz. This provides users with the ability to tune peak power, pulse energy and pulse frequency for their application. SPI also offers tailored beam quality to meet specific marking and micromachining requirements.

Having selectable functionality and beam quality enables greater control of the energy input to the material being processed. Users benefit from being able to process a wider range of materials, with more accurate and higher contrast marks resulting in less damage to some of the more thermally sensitive substrates. Higher productivity can be achieved with repetition rates >100kHz where the higher spot over lap yields more continuous marked lines allowing users to use higher marking speeds.

40W

To enhance the product range SPI is now introducing a 40W version of its higher moded laser with increased average power and peak pulse power of >20kW. It also provides unique pulse energy levels which exceed 1.25mJ. Applications for this laser include black anneal marking,
high speed engraving and 'broad brush' materials processing.

"This laser will have wide appeal and be particularly well suited to engraving with its higher pulse energy. It is also suitable for high speed applications as a result of its ability to deliver >10kW peak power at repetition rates in excess of 200kHz" says Dr Jack Gabzdyl, SPI's Product Line Manager.

This laser is now available for sale and free of charge evaluations can be booked at the SPI stand during Laser 2009.
