Laser Mechanisms is introducing the latest version of the FiberWELD® processing head, which is 40 percent smaller and lighter than last year’s model.
Engineered for harsh production welding, cladding, and joining applications with a fiber-coupled laser, the compact, low-mass head features an accessible cover glass that helps protect internal optics. It can be configured with straight or right-angle fiber input, camera viewing, wire feed, air knife, coaxial nozzle, weld monitoring, and special focusing optics (twin spot and rectangular).
The system comprises the welding head, fiber collimators from 120 to 190 mm, focusing lenses from 150 to 1,000 mm, and internal optics monitoring. The head works with fiber-delivered laser systems up to 8 kW with wavelengths from 900 to 1,100 nm.
