NUBURU launches compact blue laser with third-generation light engine
In booth 3086 at Photonics West 2023 in San Francisco (28 January to 2 February), NUBURU Inc of Centennial, CO, USA is launching the BL-series, a new compact-form-factor blue laser enabled by a third-generation light engine design.
Founded in 2015, NUBURU is a developer and manufacturer of industrial blue lasers that leverage their high-brightness, high-power design to produce fast, high-quality laser materials processing, including laser welding and additive manufacturing of copper, gold, aluminium and other industrially important metals. The firm’s industrial blue lasers are claimed to produce defect-free welds up to eight times faster than the traditional approaches — all with the flexibility inherent to laser processing.
The new BL-series lasers are designed as easy-to-service packages that can readily integrate with scanners and beam delivery systems. The 125W BL-125 and 250W BL-250 lasers will provide high power and brightness along with integrated power monitoring, enabling design and fabrication efficiencies across a wide variety of industries.
Advances in the new light engine build on the range of application development that NUBURU has conducted with its AO and AI product lines. The entire NUBURU product line is designed to bring the fundamental physical, economic and performance advantages of the blue industrial laser to both the electrification (energy storage, electric vehicles) and 3C (computers, communication, consumer electronics) sectors.
