Coherent Inc. has expanded the company's fiber laser offering with an all new platform capable of delivering output powers to 4 kW and beyond. The new Highlight FL series employs Coherent's unique modular architecture, which allows OEM customers and system integrators alike the choice of systems with turn-key operation, or modules to build their own custom fiber laser systems.
The modular architecture combined with Coherent's factory service training and qualification program enables OEM customers the ability to benefit from Coherent's worldwide support infrastructure and the option to directly provide service to its end customers. HighLight FL lasers at all power levels are available with a range of output delivery fiber options optimized for cutting and welding of a broad spectrum of metals and alloys.
Coherent is a vertically integrated manufacturer, incorporating its own laser diode pumps and active fibers for high performance, reliability and quality at a low cost of operation. The modular design simplifies service, and ensures high system uptime, according to the company. Plus, Coherent's worldwide logistics, applications development, and field integration team ensure help is rapidly available in many regions around the globe.
"Coherent's goal is to deliver superior performance and value throughout the entire supply chain, from machine tool OEMs to end users," notes Sri Venkat, Sr. Vice President and General Manager, Commercial Lasers and Components at Coherent. "This means delivering reliable and cost-effective fiber lasers for metal cutting and welding, especially of reflective materials, as well as modular and easy-to-service products which enable our customers to add value, while minimizing downtime and cost of operation."
