YLS-CUT, 1-20 kW

Fiber Laser for Metal Cutting

IPG's YLS-CUT laser series is developed specifically for demanding cutting applications. Supplied in the smallest form factor available on the market, lasers can be easily integrated within cutting machines. Lasers are packaged in a hermetically sealed cabinet containing an internal dryer, enabling the laser to be used in the harshest of production environments. The YLS-CUT incorporates the latest IPG technical improvements in design of diode modules, fiber block, digital power supplies and digital control electronics, resulting in unparalleled reliability and increased control flexibility, stability and precision. The new control system allows integrated control of both laser and process subsystem.


IPG’s family of kW class YLS-CUT lasers are specifically designed for high performance in harsh cutting environments. The CUT series features a super compact design with the laser housed in an hermetically sealed cabinet. A dehumidifier is installed within the cabinet to ensure optimal internal humidity. Due to continuous design improvements, the industry-leading wall-plug efficiency our lasers are known for has reached over 40% in 2015. The electrical cost savings add up to many tens of thousands of dollars over lifetime of a laser. Hot redundancy ensures 100% up time with no change in power, record reliability and maintenance-free operation. The CUT series are available from 1 to 20 kW with a wide variety of fiber delivery options, starting at 50 μm core diameter.
