Nuburu awarded core patent for blue light copper welding

April 5, 2021
The company has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 10,940,562 for blue laser applications of welding copper material and its alloys.

Nuburu (Centennial, CO) has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 10,940,562 for blue laser applications of welding copper material and its alloys. This patent joins the company’s IP portfolio that grew substantially in January 2021 with the addition of seven patents across 3D printing and material processing. The company’s foundational patent, “3D printing Devices and Methods” (PCT/US14/35928), was awarded in 16 countries with several other applications and continuations pending around the world, including with the U.S. patent office (2016/0067780).

“Our IP portfolio widely covers broad applications within 3D printing and material processing, and we have an additional 79 pending patent applications, signaling the possibility for even further expansion of our portfolio,” says Dr. Mark Zediker, founder and chairman of Nuburu.

Nuburu’s blue lasers provide unprecedented speed and quality control for metal processing operations in growing industries like e-mobility and automotive where copper materials, stainless steel, and aluminum are increasingly critical, and existing market technologies do not have the flexibility, speed, or power to produce high-quality results. The company’s industrial blue lasers reportedly produce defect-free welds up to 10X faster than the traditional approaches—all with the flexibility inherent to laser processing.

“We’ve taken great strides in just a few months to expand the reach of our capabilities and increase our intellectual property portfolio, further securing our market potential and ability to serve customers across industries,” says Guy Gilliland, CEO of Nuburu.
