JK Lasers Launches Kilowatt-class Fiber Lasers

RUGBY, England, Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- JK Lasers, a subsidiary of GSI Group Inc. and a leading supplier of fiber lasers, Nd:YAG laser solutions, Q-Switched Lasers, Gas Lasers, and associated process tools, announced today it is shipping a recently launched one kilowatt (kW) fiber laser system.

The JK1000FL range of Fiber Lasers has wide range of versatile features, which offer many advantages over more traditional solid state lasers at this power level.

For today's critical manufacturing processes, these benefits include vastly improved energy efficiency. The JK1000FL's time-sharing capability maximizes productivity by eliminating laborious system load and unload times. This is particularly beneficial during the manufacture of large, complex parts where high throughput is needed despite significant jigging and fit-up times.

In addition, its energy-sharing feature can help avoid the distortion of sensitive, high tolerance components by simultaneously welding onto multiple locations on one part. Examples of this include welding lids onto canisters and gears onto shafts.

The JK1000FL can also be used with JK Lasers' bespoken, field-proven range of process tools, offering 'plug and play' capability and back reflection protection.  

"The JK1000FL is an innovative fiber laser that offers unrivalled levels of power and control for industrial applications," said Dr. Mark Richmond, Product Manager for JK Lasers.  "Its ability to help accelerate manufacturing processes without compromising quality is a highly desirable feature in today's competitive marketplace, which is why we have seen strong interest in the JK1000FL from day one."

The JK1000FL will be on display at Italy's leading industrial laser exhibition between the 17th and 19th of November 2011. Visit booth A14 (Padiglione 1) at EXPOLaser, Piacenza, Italy, to discover the many ways that the JK1000FL and JK Lasers' other products can enhance a wide range of industrial processes.
