G6 system

Laser Components' partner Haas Technologies now offers various laser process heads for fibre lasers. The G6 series laser process heads were developed for fibre lasers with a high output power between 4kW and 5kW and are typically used for high-speed cutting applications. User-friendliness plays a central role in the G6 series, and compartments make it easy to change the optics and adjust the focal distance. They also facilitate the exchange of the protective windows - standard 1.1-inch optics are used for this purpose.

The G6 system is particularly adaptable and the application of several focal length combinations is possible, as is the use of patented TLC optics (with a reduced thermal lens). A QBH and other fibre connections are suitable, as well as an XY adjustment of the lenses.

The PHF-25 series is made for a medium power output of up to 2kW. For a low power output of approximately 100W, the new PHFM series is available. This series features a compact design, and easy handling through an SMA fibre connection. One application in this power range is the laser welding of plastic.
