Fiber Laser: 20W (MarkStar™ Professional)

Fiber Lasers are a great leap forward in processing all metal and coated soft material applications. Our Fiber Lasers are easily integrated into industrial processes in comparison with conventional lasers due to: 

  • State of the art, Air-cooled, Ytterbium Q-switched Fiber Laser with high-repetition rate 
  • Excellent TEM00 beam quality (M2 < 1.05) 
  • Exceptional High Long-Term Reliability (50,000 MTBF)
  • No water cooling required 
  • Warranty – 2 years on laser components with 5 years optional program available

Q-Switched Fiber Laser

The Q-switched Fiber Laser is maintenance-free. It delivers an excellent diffraction-limited (TEM00 beam quality M2 < 1.05) laser beam directly to the worksite via a metal sheathed single-mode fiber cable. These compact service-free Fiber Lasers are designed to operate under high-shock, vibration and dust conditions in relatively high humidity across wide operating temperature ranges. State-of-the-art air-cooled Ytterbium lasers have a very high MTBF of 50,000 hours (100,000 hours typical on diodes).  There is no routine replacement of parts or materials scheduling requiring only a low voltage power source.  Fiber-to-Fiber architecture provides a robust, monolithic design with no optics to align, no mechanics to stabilize.  The laser is engineered for optimal power and density providing responsive performance for the most demanding applications.

Scanning Head

The Scan Head is designed to quickly and precisely deflect and position the laser beam.  Small spot sizes are achieved along with large image fields. Very stable operating conditions as well as high long-term stability are provided by air cooling of the entrance aperture, electronics, and galvanometer scanners and supplemented by air cooling of the deflection mirrors. The compact housing is dust proof and water spray resistant.
