恩耐激光携最新光纤激光器产品亮相光博会 - OFweek激光网
OFweek激光网讯：2015年3月17日-19日，慕尼黑上海光博会在上海新国际博览中心举办。本次展会汇聚国内外知名激光企业，共同展示最新激光产品。OFweek激光网在现场独家采访了恩耐激光CEO ScottKeeney先生，以下为采访原文： 1、2014年全球激光器产业仍呈上升趋势，恩耐激光整体以及中国市场业绩表现如何？在2014年有哪些重要进展？ ( In 2014, in global laser marketing is growing, how about the performance of nLight, what s new? ) 2014 was a strong year for nLIGHT, especially in China where sales grew over 50% from 2013. This growth primarily resulted from improvements in our world-leading components: element semiconductor pump diodes and Liekki active and passive fibers. 2、近日，恩耐激光发布了多款工业级光纤激光器，主要是哪些产品？应用在哪些领域？预计15年市场表现如何？ ( nLIGHT launched some industrial fiber laser, what are them? How about the application/field? What s your forecast in 2015? ) nLIGHT, headquartered in USA, has leveraged its vertical integration in pump diodes and fiber to develop the industry s next generation fiber laser. The alta family of fiber lasers includes rack-mounted 500W and 700W, and stand-along 2000W and 3000W laser sources for metal cutting and welding applications. These lasers have been proven to be well-suited to the demanding production environment in China, where we have ramped to volume production with several customers.Scott Keeney 3、近几年光纤激光器成为工业领域新宠，但是也有不少企业进入，恩耐激光在开发光纤激光器方面有哪些优势？与其他商用激光器相比有哪些技术特色？如何打开市场？ ( Recently, fiber laser becoming the new focus in industrial, many companies enter in, what s the advantage of nLIGHT in fiber laser manufacture? What s the technical strength compared with other competitors? How will you open the market? ) nLIGHT alta includes several advantages over legacy laser sources the most significant being in serviceability. nLIGHT s architecture was developed to enable easy field service at the end user site, and nLIGHT s customer-oriented culture allows for the training of customers to perform their own service on nLIGHT s lasers. This is the first time tool makers will be able to conduct their own service on fiber laser-based systems. Second, nLIGHT has developed the industry s most robust back reflection isolation technology, which allows customers to process highly reflective metals like copper, aluminum, and stainless steel. This will eliminate downtime compared to previous generation fiber lasers that fail during instances of back reflection. In addition, the alta platform offers customers the most competitive beam quality for rapid 2D and 3D cutting of thin metals. Higher quality beams directly translate to improved cutting speed and quality, making nLIGHT s products a competitive advantage for system integrators. China has been an integral part of nLIGHT s business strategy since our entry into the domestic market in 2003. In 2015, nearly 50% of nLIGHT s sales, service, engineering, and manufacturing resources are located in China. Our China infrastructure has resulted in excellent sales and service support for local customers. 4、随着技术发展，光纤激光器的应用也在不断扩展。您对于光纤激光技术及应用未来发展趋势有何见解？与半导体激光器相比，哪些可以替代？各具有什么优势？ ( The application of fiber laser is expanding, what s your opinion about fiber laser technology trend? Would it take place of direct diode laser, what s the strength of each? ) nLIGHT has the unique position of being a semiconductor diode laser company and a fiber laser company. As a result, as technology evolves, we are well positioned to provide the most competitive laser sources, whether they be fiber laser or direct diode laser. 5、随着制造业升级，精细加工成为谈论最多的话题，您认为精细加工未来走向如何？在哪些领域更具应用潜力？ ( Micro-manufacture is becoming a focus topic while developing of manufacture, so what is the micro-manufacture future direction? which filed will be more potential development. ) In addition to the alta product family, which is well-suited to micro-processing brittle materials like glass, sapphire, and ceramic, nLIGHT has recently launched the helix ultrafast fiber laser for more advanced microprocessing applications. Helix is based on nLIGHT s proprietary 3C fiber technology, which allows power and energy scaling while preserving excellent beam quality. This product is excellent for thin film patterning, scribing sapphire, silicon processing, and other sophisticated applications. 6、随着金属增材制造应用的扩展，对于先进光纤激光器的需求增加。您认为增材制造是否会成为光纤激光器的又一个应用新市场？对此，恩耐激光有哪些规划？ ( As expand of 3D metal material manufacture, the requirement of high performance fiber laser is increasing every year. Do you think 3D metal manufacture is a new application market and increasing point for fiber laser? For this market, what s plan and strategy of nLight? ) nLIGHT recognizes the importance of the rapidly growing additive manufacturing market, and as a result, nLIGHT is developing more advanced high power fiber lasers that will rapidly decrease the manufacturing cycle time of 3D printed parts while simultaneously improving the surface finish of these parts. Stay tuned as these products will be released to the market in the next few months. 7、2015年恩耐激光有哪些的新的目标或规划？还会有哪些产品系列将会推出？ ( In 2015, what s the schedule and target of nLight market strategy? We ll have any new product released in this year? ) nLIGHT s recent release of high power fiber lasers was oriented to the needs of 2D and 3D metal cutting customers. As a result of further innovation in semiconductor diode and fiber technology, nLIGHT is in a unique position to build on this strong foundation with additional product releases later this year of lasers tailored to a variety of industrial and microfabrication applications.
