The Coherent Profile Welding System is a CO2 or fiber laser-based turnkey system that delivers high quality, high throughput, tube and profile welds on a variety of metals. It incorporates an integrated process sensor for welding gap detection and tracking, together with fast and precise linear actuators to ensure accurate laser beam positioning (within a few microns to the seam gap position) while achieving welding speeds of up to 60 m/min.
The Coherent PWS is available with two different laser sources: an industry proven CO2 laser, which is well-established as delivering a stable, high quality process on most materials. Or, the unique HighLight-FL Adjustable Ring Mode (ARM) fiber laser. This enables more precise control than traditional fiber lasers over the way that power is delivered at the work surface, leading to better weld characteristics. This FL-ARM has already proven to be particularly advantageous with stainless steel.
