NUBURU showcases new BL-Series blue laser at Photonics West
NUBURU Inc of Centennial, CO, USA showcased its new NUBURU BL-Series at SPIE Photonics West 2023 in San Francisco, CA, USA (28 January to 2 February), where key members of its management team and Advisory Committee were in attendance.
Founded in 2015, NUBURU is a developer and manufacturer of industrial blue lasers that leverage their high-brightness, high-power design to produce fast, high-quality laser materials processing, including laser welding and additive manufacturing of copper, gold, aluminium and other industrially important metals. The firm’s industrial blue lasers are claimed to produce defect-free welds up to eight times faster than the traditional approaches — all with the flexibility inherent to laser processing.
The BL-Series is a new compact form-factor blue laser enabled by a third-generation light engine design. The lasers are designed as easy-to-service packages that can readily integrate with scanners and beam delivery systems. The 125W BL-125 and 250W BL-250 provide high power and brightness along with integrated power monitoring, enabling design and fabrication efficiencies across a wide variety of industries.
The BL-Series products showcased at Photonics West are designed to bring the fundamental physical, economic and performance advantages of the blue industrial laser to the manufacturing of products for vehicle electrification, 3C products and additive manufacturing of copper and other reflective materials.
