YLS Series

Each classification of high power fiber laser serves a targeted application demographic. The most versatile and customizable option within the product line is the YLS series fiber laser. Developed as a complete system, this design features the widest range of fiber diameters, the option to terminate to up to 6 ports from one power source, and the ability to upgrade. Housed in a NEMA 12, air conditioned sealed cabinet, these systems are designed to operate in industrial manufacturing environments. They have garnered wide acceptance in the very demanding automotive, aerospace and oil and gas industries, many requiring the operation of multiple shifts. Single-mode, CW and QCW operating modes available- see chart below.
