A 3kW fibre laser has been launched by JK Lasers.

The company says this new addition to its Watt to kiloWatt fibre laser range will help manufacturing productivity by processing thicker section metals at faster speeds and to higher standards. It is fitted with JK Lasers’ detachable ‘plug in, pre-aligned’ (PIPA) beam delivery fibres, offering core diameters from 100μm.

The JK3000FL has helped to open up new applications for the company, including remote laser welding. Compared to Nd:YAG lasers of a similar power level, the company claims the JK3000FL is more energy efficient and also highly reliable.
