YLM-QCW and YLR-QCW

Quasi-CW Ytterbium Lasers

IPG’s quasi continuous wave (QCW) fiber lasers are available for requalifying existing lamp-pumped processes at IPG’s application facilities and applications labs. QCW fiber lasers are ideal for spot welding, seam welding & drilling in the long pulse operation mode. These air-cooled, compact units are substantially more cost-effective than conventional YAG lasers due to >30% wall-plug efficiencies and maintenance-free operation. Retrofit services, including engineers familiar with system integration, are available to help customers replace older production lasers with energy-efficient fiber lasers from IPG. The QCW Series features 19” rack mounted units and highly cost-effective OEM modules.

Outstanding Pulse Power/ Energy Stability Beam Quality Optimized for Applications
>30% Wall-plug Efficiency Internal Pulse Generator & Pulse Shaping
CW and Pulsed Modes High Peak Power at Low Cost

IPG has expanded its quasi continuous wave (QCW) fiber laser series to higher power models. The new modules are twice more powerful and feature compact size and lower price per Watt. The QCW fiber lasers are ideal for spot welding, drilling and cutting in the long pulse operation mode. These air-cooled compact units are substantially more cost-effective than conventional YAG lasers due to >30% wall-plug efficiency and maintenance-free operation.
