Nuburu announces 1 kilowatt blue laser technology
Nubura has announced the introduction of its next-generation Nubura BL-1000-F. This expansion of the BL-product line increases the BL’s laser power from 250 W to 1000 W. This additional power enables higher speed, micron-level precision, and repeatable high-quality welds all of which are critical attributes for the needs of large commercial markets including EV battery welding and 3D printing.
Dr. Mark Zediker, CEO and Co-Founder of Nuburu remarked, “We are extremely excited to announce the BL-1000-F. Our customer feedback has indicated that our BL-1000-F will provide a compelling solution that combines both speed and weld quality which will dramatically improve the manufacturing capabilities of our customers in our primary markets: welding, metal additive 3D printing and consumer electronics.”
The Nubura BL-1000-F can deliver these next generation capabilities due to its ability to harness the intrinsically higher absorption of metals to blue light. The BL-1000-F, when combined with a scanner, enables critical benefits such as high speed and conduction mode weld precision with the quality and process stability requirements which are critical to customers and lowers their total cost of ownership. The higher power delivered by the BL-1000-F enables a higher quality laser beam. This improved quality allows the BL-1000-F to more efficiently weld and process metals that are highly reflective for traditional IR lasers as well as other metals that are used extensively in the manufacturing of EV batteries and 3D metal printing.
