JK100P laser

GSI Lasers has launched the JK100P laser, which is an addition to its JK family of pulsed Nd:YAG lasers.

The 100W Nd:YAG short pulsed laser combines high peak power (10kW), short pulses (15-200us) and high repetition rates (2,000Hz) to make this laser ideal for cutting thick sections of silicon wafers and other similar materials.

The JK100P can also be effectively used for scribing or drilling holes and also, due to the pulse regime, can enable high aspect ratio cutting in thick section silicon but eradicate micro-cracking that is usually caused by excessive heat input.

GSI Lasers has included the unique features associated with the JKTM series within the new JK100P such as the LaserView control technology, which enables complete cycle programming triggered by a single command, Luminator fibre optic beam delivery with back reflection protection, faster shutter interface and fully integrated time and energy shares for faster switching and reduction in maintenance costs.
