IPG Photonics Corporation’s products, like the products of many other high-tech companies, contain various metals that were purchased from third-party vendors and originate from all over the world. These metals include tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (“conflict minerals”). These metals have been labeled “conflict minerals” because they may be sourced, in part, from the conflict-laden Democratic Republic of Congo and adjoining countries and because some of the trading of these metals is believed to be funding the illegal armed groups responsible for the conflict there.
IPG is committed to responsible sourcing of conflict minerals and related legal compliance, including the due diligence and disclosure requirements relating to the manufacturing of IPG’s products. IPG conducts annual due diligence of its suppliers to determine the sourcing of the conflict minerals in its products and confirm there is no evidence that the conflict minerals in IPG’s product funded conflict.
IPG will not knowingly source any conflict minerals from sources that fund conflict. If IPG’s due diligence reveals that any of IPG’s suppliers have provided IPG with goods or metals that funded conflict, IPG will seek alternative sources for such goods or metals.Close

IPG Photonics supplies our unique line of fiber lasers and amplifiers to systems integrators as well as directly to end-users. Because IPG provides products to a variety of end users, it is our desire to provide basic information on the topic of laser safety.
This information is being provided as a service to both our existing customers and perspective customers. Please see the links at the end of this section for additional sources of information concerning laser safety.
Lasers/amplified light sources produce light that does not exist in nature. A stimulus such as high intensity light is input into a laser cavity and the result is laser emission or light output. Although the output is light, the laser/ amplified light is much different that sunlight or a light bulb. Therefore because laser/amplified light has special properties there are often hazards associated during operation and potentially during service. Lasers/amplified light sources produce highly intense monochromatic light which can be visible or invisible to the human eye. Laser/amplified light is also coherent which means that all of the waves are in phase with each other. Coherence makes this light much more dangerous than non-coherent light of the same wavelength and intensity. Collimated beams or beams that do not diverge rapidly as they exit the device aperture have risks that are present even at long distances from the aperture.
When considering laser hazards, the most common area of concern is usually the eye. The information below will not only speak to hazards associated with the eye, but will also touch on other hazards that may be present with the use of a laser product.
IPG’s diode lasers operate in the 980 nm range, Ytterbium lasers and amplifiers operate at around 1060 nm, Raman lasers and amplifiers operate at around 1400nm, Erbium lasers and amplifiers at around 1550 nm and Thulium lasers and amplifiers operate at around 2000nm. IPG also provides laser sources below 980nm.
Ocular damage can occur from laser exposure. Lasers can damage the eye in different ways depending on the wavelength and output power that the user may become exposed to:
In addition to the information provided above about safety, the following is a brief description of laser system classification. Laser systems are classified by the wavelength and output power the end user may be exposed to during operation. This could also be described as the hazard potential of the laser system. The classification is determined by the emission wavelength(s), output power and beam characteristics.
Laser classes start at Class 1 and end at Class 4. The higher the number in the classification, the greater hazard potential the laser system has. These laser classifications are identified on the laser system and often Roman numerals are used to identify the class number. The identification process is accomplished by affixing a label onto the product. Along with text warnings, these labels include information pertaining to the wavelength, total output power and laser classification.
Class 1 laser systems are intrinsically safe. Under normal operating conditions, these lasers do not pose potential health hazards. Special design considerations are used to prevent human access to laser radiation during operation.
Class 2 laser systems are low power, visible lasers. The eye’s natural blinking reflex caused by bright light aversion will protect the user. There are some potential hazards if directly viewed for an extended period of time. A CAUTION label is required for Class 2 lasers.
Class 3a laser systems are also required to have a CAUTION label and on some cases require a DANGER label. The light aversion reflex should protect the user if only viewed momentarily. A hazard may be present if viewed with collecting optics such as during an optical alignment process.
Class 3b laser systems can produce a hazard if viewed directly or by viewing secondary beams. Typically, these lasers will not produce hazardous reflections from a matte surface. These systems have a DANGER label affixed and although the potential for eye damage is present, the risk for fire or skin hazards is low. Laser safety eyewear is recommended while using these lasers
Class 4 laser systems present hazards to both the eye and skin. The hazards can be present from direct, secondary and diffuse reflections. A DANGER label is affixed to all Class 4 laser systems. Class 4 lasers can also damage materials in or around the laser area and ignite flammable substances. Laser safety eyewear is required while using these lasers.
IPG Photonics supplies both Class 3b and Class 4 lasers and laser systems to our end-users.
The following list contains items that laser users or prospective users should consider when using laser systems.
Laser safety eyewear is labeled with both the optical density and the wavelength coverage range. The optical density, OD, is a parameter of great interest when selecting laser safety eyewear. The formula for optical density is listed below.
Optical Density = -1 (Light Transmission)
Tl = 10 - OD
Using the formula above you can see that there is a 10x increase in protection (10x decreases in laser transmission) for each increase in OD. IPG Photonics recommends that the end user of laser systems review the particular application when assessing eyewear requirements. It is important to understand the potential hazards associated with or as a result of the end use application.
IPG Photonics recommends that laser users investigate any local, state, federal or governmental requirements as well as facility or building requirements that may apply to installing or using a laser or laser system.Close

The record energy efficiency of IPG fiber lasers is enabling a transformation within the laser industry similar to the electric lighting industry. Over the years, advances in lighting and laser technology have improved the energy efficiency of these products and lowered the total cost of ownership.
|Nd:YAG (Lamp Pumped) = Incandescent||CO2 = Fluorescent||Fiber = LED|
|Electrical Efficiency: 2%||Electrical Efficiency: 7 to 8% (including chiller)||Electrical Efficiency: 45 to 50%|
Nd:YAG laser wall-plug efficiency is about 2%, which is equivalent to a traditional filament bulb. The majority of input energy is lost as heat. In a laser setting, this means that more electricity is needed to get required output power, necessitating powerful chillers to dissipate the significant heat which is effectively lost energy.
CO2 lasers are 3-5x more efficient than Nd:YAG lasers. More than 90% of input energy is lost to heat, much like a CFL light bulb. Significant cooling is still required for most industrial applications, further increasing energy usage.
IPG’s fiber lasers have efficiencies from 45 to more than 50%, dramatically reducing the input power needed. In addition, fiber's high surface area to volume ratio combined with its efficiency significantly reduces heat output and the corresponding cooling cost of a chiller.
