The current industry standard for metal laser cutting, welding, and additive manufacturing is infrared. In this regime, spatter, defects, and porosity can compromise the mechanical strength and resistance of the base material. But that's all about to change.
Introducing revolutionary blue fibre-coupled lasers by Nuburu. They have been shown to produce no spatter, defects, or porosity when processing copper and yellow metals regardless of processing speed and power. This means you'll achieve high-quality laser processing without dramatically changing the grain structure, hardness, or electrical properties.
Blue light is efficiently absorbed by an array of non-ferrous and precious metals. In fact, the absorptivity of blue light in copper is around 60% greater than that of IR. Consequently, the strong absorption of Nuburu lasers have the capacity to improve throughput and allow more controllable metal processing.
With the ability to focus to much smaller spot sizes than possible with IR, blue lasers can enable greater precision, higher resolution, and better production quality.
We present to you a world premiere of Spatter-freeTM welding of copper and yellow metals with high-power blue lasers.
