4x1 TrueM2-14 beam combiner

OFS, a designer, manufacturer, and supplier of fibre optic products, has introduced its 4x1 TrueM2-14 beam combiner. The TrueM2 platform enables machine manufacturers to build their own fibre laser source using a modular architecture, and to produce a customised fibre laser based on their specific requirements.

The new 4x1 TrueM2-14 combiner can be mated with up to four TrueMode-kW laser cavity modules, or other compatible modules, and is rated up to 4kW.
