VANCOUVER, Wash., Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- nLIGHT®, Inc. (NASDAQ: LASR), a global innovator in industrial lasers, today announced the introduction of its welding fiber laser family, a portfolio of fiber lasers from 3kW to 15kW with an integrated fiber coupler or beam switch optimized for welding, cladding, and robotic applications.

“With today’s introduction of welding fiber laser products, nLIGHT now offers customers an integrated solution with fiber-to-fiber couplers and switches,” said Jake Bell, nLIGHT general manager for industrial lasers. “We have expanded the functionality of our current fiber lasers, enabling customers to access the fast-growing welding market across automotive, aerospace, and general industry applications.”

The welding family of fiber lasers offers users the flexibility to integrate a fiber coupler or 2- or 4-port beam switch for plug-and-play fiber replacement. In addition to these newly introduced features, the portfolio includes market-differentiating advantages such as unique hardware protection against back reflections, which allows uninterrupted processing of reflective metals. The welding family offers high modulation rate and power stability, which delivers larger process windows and higher productivity. End users also enjoy high uptime due to proven, trusted components and rapid field serviceability.
