FABTECH - nLIGHT Expands Fiber Laser Portfolio at FABTECH 2015

nLIGHT, the technology leader in semiconductor and fiber lasers, introduces nLIGHT alta prime, the latest addition to its next generation industrial fiber laser portfolio.

Vancouver, Wash. USA November 04, 2015 -- nLIGHT, the technology leader in semiconductor and fiber lasers, introduces nLIGHT alta prime, the latest addition to its next generation industrial fiber laser portfolio. Available at power levels from 500 W to 1 kW, nLIGHT alta prime provides leading process control and performance for advanced industrial metal cutting and welding applications.


nLIGHT alta prime fiber lasers have the fastest modulation rate and shortest pulse rise and fall times available in a commercial fiber laser, and incorporate programmable pulse shaping and triggering for the highest degree of process optimization. These capabilities, in addition to embedded process monitors, enable improved fine-feature processing and real-time quality control.

nLIGHT alta fiber lasers provide unmatched performance, reliability and uptime, leveraging nLIGHT's industry-leading laser diode and fiber technologies. Learn more about nLIGHT alta prime fiber lasers at FABTECH, November 9 - 12, 2015, at the nLIGHT booth in Hall C1, Booth #C1024.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
