JK Lasers has introduced its newly enhanced JK604D laser, a tool for percussion drilling and trepanning of components in the automotive and aerospace industries.
The laser has been designed to offer high peak power levels and maximum pulse energy with an improved beam quality. The class-leading beam is capable of producing high quality hole profiles, while the high intensity laser spots allow for fast drilling.
A new resonator design provides a much wider operating window than previous drilling lasers in this class, allowing users a more flexible approach to manufacturing parameters and shorter times to optimise a new process. In addition to the physical advantages, the enhanced JK604D can be integrated with JK LaserView technology, allowing for tighter process control and complete cycle programming triggered by a single command. Manufacturers can also benefit from reduced costs when utilising the pulse shaping feature via JK Lasers’ patented switch-mode power supply.
