Variable Beam Fiber Laser

Cincinnati Incorporated (CI), a U.S.-based, build-to-order machine tool manufacturer, offers a series of fiber lasers powered by Corona.

Corona fiber lasers feature programmable beam quality enabled by all-fiber technology from CI's partner, nLIGHT, a provider of high-power semiconductors and fiber lasers.

With a single Corona laser, users can select from high-intensity, small-spot-size beams to large, donut-shaped beams and everything in between on the fly and in real time. This advance allows optimal thick and thin-gauge metal cutting, higher cutting speed and quality and improved piercing and small-feature processing with the same laser system.

"Using software to make laser beams programmable is truly revolutionary," said Troy Wilson, Product Manager of CNC Table Products for CI. "Job shops and factories will no longer have to choose between purchasing multiple lasers, tolerating compromised performance from existing tools or using complex, expensive and fragile free-space optical technologies."

"End users get the best of all worlds: the speed of high-power fiber lasers for thin-gauge metal processing, the quality of CO2 lasers for thick-gauge metal processing and the high uptime and low operating costs of a fiber laser solution," said a CI spokesperson.

"Corona's 'no compromises' performance is unattainable with any other technology and is derived from its unique, all-fiber design," continued the spokesperson. "This maximizes laser lifespan with no maintenance or calibration requirements and no impact on power consumption, efficiency, size or installation requirements. Edge quality and thickness range benefits are achieved at full cutting speed to facilitate maximum productivity. Improved roughness, edge straightness and perpendicularity also negate the need for post-processing, enabling factory automation and lights-out operation."
