Universal Laser Systems Introduces World’s First Air-Cooled 150 W CO2 Laser for the ULTRA X6000 High-Accuracy Laser System

Universal Laser Systems, Inc. announces the addition of the world’s first air-cooled 150 watt 10.6 µm wavelength CO2 laser for the ULTRA X6000 advanced laser material processing system. The new 150 watt laser source is also compatible with the ULTRA R9000 and ULTRA R5000 systems from the ULTRA series.

The series’ flagship system, the ULTRA X6000 is a high-accuracy laser material processing system designed for demanding applications in manufacturing, prototyping, and research and development environments. It is the only laser system that offers the ultimate material processing flexibility with a variety of laser power and wavelength options and an extensive set of advanced features and capabilities to achieve impeccable quality on the broadest range of materials.

The new 150 watt laser expands the available CO2 laser source options for the ULTRA X6000 from 10 to 75 watts to 10 to 150 watts. A maximum of 300 watts of 10.6 µm CO2 laser power can be achieved when the ULTRA X6000 is configured with two 150 watt 10.6 µm CO2 lasers. Higher power enables thicker material cutting in one pass, cleaner results, and faster laser processing with many materials. Additionally, up to 50 watts of 1.06 µm Fiber laser power is available.

The ULTRA X6000 supports up to three laser sources and three laser wavelengths- 9.3 µm CO2, 10.6 µm CO2, and 1.06 µm Fiber. It can be configured with two 9.3 µm or 10.6 µm lasers and one 1.06 µm laser, or with three lasers each of a different wavelength. Any combination of the laser wavelengths and powers can be focused to the same focal point within the same focal plane and used sequentially or simultaneously with patented MultiWave Hybrid™ technology. This unique technology delivers extreme controllability for laser processing of homogenous, composite, and multilayer materials with the highest efficiency.

Using patented Rapid Reconfiguration™ technology, all CO2 lasers supported by the ULTRA X6000 can be easily and quickly installed or reinstalled by the user to optimize the system configuration for laser processing and allow for general maintenance accessibility.

Whether laser processing a specific material or a broad range of diverse applications, the ULTRA X6000 laser system addresses virtually any material challenge in one system. The ULTRA X6000 is an ideal solution as it offers the highest versatility and expansion in capabilities to address varying requirements.
