JK Lasers, Rugby, Warwickshire, UK, has released two new additions to the JK range of pulsed Nd:YAG lasers: the JK80PS and JK150PS. Designed for industrial processing, these lasers are used in small medical applications, electronics, and automotive components. The JK80PS and JK150PS combine higher peak powers with improved beam quality for increased flexibility and maximized process control for faster, more precise welding and fine cutting applications.

Fiber sizes down to 100 µm and peak powers up to 5 kW enable peak power densities to be achieved at smaller feature sizes than previously possible. The JK80PS allows peak powers of up to 3kW to be delivered via a 100 µm fiber and the JK150PS enables 5 kW to be delivered via a 150 µm fiber.

All fibers are equipped with JK Luminator plug-in, pre-aligned (PIPA) technology with integral back reflection protection and fiber continuity monitoring system (FCMS) built in for enhanced safety. All lasers have high levels of pulse-to-pulse stability down to ±0.5% and include elements such as pulse on demand (POD) and the feature rich JK LaserView software suite. These lasers are also good for scanner-based delivery systems because LaserView includes integral scanner control software specifically designed for welding and cutting applications.

These new additions also include the unique features associated with the JK Laser brand such as: pulse shaping capabilities for tighter process control; faster shutter interface for quicker response on parameter changes and more precise timing in time-share mode; and fully integrated time and energy shares for faster switching and reduced maintenance costs.
