Coherent's HighLightFL4000CSM fibre laserClick image to enlargeThe HighLight FL4000CSM-ARM fibre laser from Coherent Inc. overcomes the limitations of other joining technologies.

It enables advanced welding capabilities for high thermal conductivity metals and aligns to welding requirements for e-mobility, energy storage and general electrical interconnects consisting of dissimilar materials, such as copper and aluminum or foil stacks that require precise control.

Eliminate unstable welds due to welding head wear and the large heat affected zone caused by ultrasonic or standard fibre laser welding.
It’s able to weld thin, conductive materials because of its unique dual beam output (center beam surrounded by a ring beam). The center beam has extremely high brightness (nominal BPP 0.6) allowing a smaller spot size compared to multi-mode counterparts. The small spot size results in very high laser intensity that minimizes heating of the material, improving stability of the melt pool and weld consistency.

The Coherent HighLight FL4000CSM-ARM is available with an output power of 4 kW (1.5 kW center beam, 2.5 kW ring beam). Power in the center and ring beams can be independently varied and modulated. It’s supplied with a 15-metre length process fiber and is compatible with standard process heads from Coherent or other manufacturers.

The Rules of X-Ray Micro CT (and When to Break Them)

Offer the term “metrology equipment” to a group of industrial or manufacturing engineers in a word-association test and it's highly likely CMM (coordinate measuring machine) would be the response.

Hydraulics vs. Electrics: Selecting the Right Press Brake

by Mary Scianna

If the press brakes in your fabrication shop are more than a decade old - not uncommon given the solid construction of most press brakes - and you're in the market for new replacement equipment, you may be surprised by the technological developments on today's press brakes.

Nikon Metrology: Anti-mould microscope design

Nikon Metrology Inc.'s latest stereoscopic microscope, the SMZ-745, is an airtight, anti-electrostatic and anti-mould designed microscope that prevents samples from being damaged by electrostatic discharge, as well as contaminants such as dust and water.

Maintaining your MIG gun and welding costs, by Grant Peppers

Selecting the right MIG gun for your welding application, and maintaining it properly, is just as important to your overall productivity as any other part of the welding operation.
