CFL High Power

The all new nLIGHT® High performance Compact Fibre Laser range is the highest power fibre laser available in this form factor. This next generation medium and high power compact lasers are available in both Continuous Wave (CW) and modulated modes, ranging from 3000 Watts for thin material processing, up to 10000 Watts for thick material cutting and welding to. This generation of lasers are designed to exceed user expectations, both in terms of performance and reliability, a must for OEM and bespoke machine builders manufacturing for industrial applications.

nLIGHT® incorporates several improvements over other commercially available fibre lasers, these include:

  • Unparalleled modular design to minimise down time and maximise uptime.
  • Fail safe processing of highly reflective materials
  • Advanced Electronic design to allow faster piercing with low heat affected zone
  • Designed for durability and to operate in harsh environmental conditions
  • Laser powers from 3000W up to 10000W
  • QBH Connector as standard.
  • Optional fibre-to-fibre coupler or beam switch available
  • Fibre core sizes from 50µm to 200µm
  • Fibre delivery lengths of up to 30 meters

nLIGHT® High performance Compact Fibre range of lasers are typically used for industrial welding, cutting and thin metal processing applications. Coupled with nLIGHT’s back reflection isolation technology – you can operate these lasers continually at full power, processing highly reflective materials with a comprehensive selection of processing heads and application specific accessories.

nLIGHT® High performance Compact Fibre range of lasers are capable of delivering modulation rates of up to 50kHz and rise and fall times of less than 10µs, with anti-back reflection isolation included. This technology allows uninterrupted full power processing of highly reflective materials, achieving faster processing of fine features.

nLIGHT High performance Compact Fibre incorporates a unique, proprietary fiber laser architecture that enables OEM, bespoke system builders and end users to manage common field service events, this results in higher machine uptime, lower cost of ownership, and an improved customer experience
