About Us

NUBURU® is leading the transformation to a world of high-speed, high quality metal machining and processing using a first-to-market class of high-power, high-performance blue lasers.

NUBURU® blue laser technology breaks new ground—available as either a standard AO™ laser or high-brightness MISAKI™ laser—by enabling radical gains in speed and quality in existing metal processes, as well as also unlocking a path to new designs for both conventional laser-metal machining and additive manufacturing (3D printing). Spatter-free copper welding enables a large number of new applications not addressable with infrared lasers.
