Dalgety Bay, UK, 2 December 2016 - PowerPhotonic is pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with Precitec to supply beam shaping optics for high-power industrial laser cutting applications. Novel optics have been co-developed with Precitec to improve the cutting performance in high-power industrial processing machines. Using PowerPhotonic´s unique direct-write laser micro-machining technology, these robust and compact components are manufactured with precision and high accuracy, delivering the ideal solution for Precitec’s industrial requirements. Based on Precitec´s long-term experience in the fields of laser processes and optical design, a new and unique approach to beam shaping has been developed.
PowerPhotonic´s fabrication process is being used to create optics that have unparalleled optical efficiency and the ability to easily work with today’s multi-kilowatt lasers. Besides other system improvements, the novel optical components has become a key enabler for new standards in cutting quality. Roy McBride, MD of PowerPhotonic, said: “We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Precitec, who are acknowledged to be dominating in the laser cutting market. It is an affirmation of our technology, and I look forward to seeing our products being used by Precitec to deliver state-of-the-art industrial materials processing solutions.”
Thilo Wersborg, CEO of Precitec, said: “By combining core competencies of our companies, we achieved a breakthrough in terms of cutting quality. Higher thicknesses at significantly reduced cutting edge roughness become today’s state-of-the-art in laser cutting with disc, fibre or direct diode laser.”
