NUBURU Showcases Compact Blue Laser 3rd Generation Light Engine at PW 2023

New form factor accelerates high brightness integration in industrial fabrication machines

CENTENNIAL, Colo. January 17, 2023 () — Since the introduction of the blue industrial laser in 2017, continuous improvement in laser characteristics has brought unprecedented speed, quality, and flexibility to welding and additive manufacturing applications. NUBURU is launching the NUBURU BL -series, at Photonics West in January 2023, a new compact form-factor generation blue laser enabled by an innovative 3rd generation light engine design. The BL-series lasers are designed as easy-to-service packages that can readily integrate with scanners and beam delivery systems. The 125-Watt BL-125 and 250-Watt BL-250 lasers will provide high power and brightness along with integrated power monitoring, enabling design and fabrication efficiencies across a wide variety of industries.

Advances in the new light engine build upon the vast range of application development NUBURU has conducted with the AO and AI product lines. The entire NUBURU product line is designed to bring the fundamental physical, economic and performance advantages of the blue industrial laser to both the electrification (energy storage, electric vehicles) and 3C (computers, communication, consumer electronics) sectors.

Photonics West attendees are invited to discuss the impact of the blue industrial laser and the new BL-series with NUBURU representatives at Booth 3086 at Photonics West.
