In order to cope with increasing needs for cost/weight reduction, fiber lasers are becoming more and more popular in processing composite materials. Moreover, particular manufacturing processes which were once only achieved using traditional machineries are also gradually replaced by fiber lasers.
Contribution to health care technology development
The medical use of laser technology started in the 1960's. Not only surgical or dental, cosmetic use like hair removal or skin whitening is also a newly added application. With the convenient fiber-delivered beam, fiber lasers can be combined with various clinical instruments like endoscope for example thus introducing innovative medical treatment technologies.
Indispensable technology for microfabrication processes
Semiconductor devices improve in structure refinement and integration from day to day. With the introduction of polarization maintaining fiber that Fujikura has devoted years of development to, fiber lasers are being utilized in a thin-layer micro-drilling, cutting or high-precision film-removing processes. The newly introduced technology is making a difference in machining speed as well as cost reduction, and Fujikura will further propose fiber lasers indispensable for more refined processes to the industry.
Quality and reproducibility for electronic device manufacturing
In a traditional electronic component production, manufacturers needed to prepare a variety of lasers suitable to each application process. With the advent and evolution of fiber laser and its peripheral equipment, various laser working applications such as marking, welding, cutting and plastic welding can be integrated and simplified these days.
Non-contact laser irradiation brings about a lot of changes
It has been problematic over the years to environment and health especially in noise, dust and effluent that the sandblast or the chemical are utilized to remove the paint from the steel of the construct. The newly developed removal method is to evaporate the surface material by irradiating non-contact laser toward the target, thus being able to propose optimized ways to surface processing works on cement, metal etc.
Iron and steel
High power and beam quality transform process method
Fiber laser is introduced to steel production process gradually. Its excellent beam quality enables to narrow the spot size down to the ideal condition. Focused beam with high energy density is to cut thick plate appropriately. On top of that, through-put and productivity in heavy industry could be dramatically improved with the superior wall-plug efficiency as well as maintenance-free investment efficiency.
Technology for products used under severe environment
Aerospace industry needs highly environmentally-resistant parts and modules which can be used in vacuum space or exposed to high radiation. As excellent processing technologies are indispensable to produce engine parts made of specialty alloys for instance, fiber lasers could be the ideal choice for this sort of important elemental processing technology.
