YLS-AMB

Adjustable Mode Beam Lasers

YLS-AMB Adjustable Mode Beam Lasers improve productivity in cutting, welding and additive manufacturing by independent programmable adjustment of the beam mode to any combination of a small-spot high intensity bright core or a larger ring-shaped beam. In cutting, AMB increases piercing and cutting speeds and improves processing quality of both thick and thin materials by the same laser. In welding, AMB lasers eliminate spatter, cracking and porosity at the highest welding speeds unattainable by other methods. YLS-AMB lasers deliver the highest total power with the widest range of beam mode parameters on the market including single mode core and high peak power option, and are fitted with either direct output or integrated beam couplers and beam switches.

Features

Direct Output with Fixed Process Fiber

Automatic Switching Between Different Optimal BPPs
High Peak Power Option Easy Process Optimization and Automation
Variety of Compact Industrial Cabinets  Cost-effective Solution to the Most Complex Tasks
Wall Plug Efficiency up to 45% The Highest Total Output Power on the Market

 

Direct output YLS-AMB lasers are fitted with fixed output processing fiber. Direct output YLS-AMB lasers provide on the fly beam mode adjustment without external free-space optics such as optical switches, zoom process heads and other peripherals.

Applications

High Speed Welding with No Spatter, Cracking and Porosity Variable Thickness 2D/3D Thin & Thick Metal Cutting
Electric Vehicle Battery Welding Improved Thick Cutting Speed and Quality
Multiple Welding Stations by the Same Laser Improved Piercing Speed and Quality
Additive Manufacturing Any Metal: Mild steel, Stainless, Ti, Cu, Brass and Al

Normal laser welding can be accompanied by periodic keyhole instability revealed by spatter of molten metal. The keyhole instability results in porosity, cracking, variations in keyhole depth and poor visional finish. 

AMB enables high-speed high-quality welding in automotive applications such as body in white, drivetrains and e-mobility such as Al battery enclosures and battery tabs.
