No need to explain what is fiber lasers, but have to know the advantages of fiber lasers.
- Fiber laser source offers a short wavelength of 1070nm fiber laser, which is 1/10th of the of a CO2 laser’s wavelength, and it is more easily absorbed by metallic materials.
- The fiber laser source has a high-quality fiber laser beam, which can achieve a smaller spot diameter, even in the longer working distance and deeper focal depths still provides fast processing speed.
- Fiber laser source Photoelectric conversion efficiency rate up to 30℅, thereby reducing the utility costs of power and cooling.
- The long life span of the fiber laser source, up to 100000 hours, and, low maintenance costs, fiber cable transmission, high efficiency, and no dimming, this is why fiber lasers replace CO2 lasers are used in metal plate cutting, welding!
- The fiber laser source is compact, lightweight, and flexible to be integrated into motion systems.
- It is adjustable to the spot size of the fiber laser source, to meet different requirements application requirements, For example, laser cutting requires a smaller spot to get the high-quality laser beam; It requires a larger spot for metal welding and metal cladding. That’s why fiber lasers are widely used in different industries, laser cutting, laser marking, laser welding, laser cleaning, laser cladding, and many more possibilities available in the future!
What Types and Applications of Fiber Laser
The Development Trend Of The Fiber Laser
- 1. Pulsed fiber lasers with high average power and high peak power. In many laser applications, high-quality beam, low power lasers are used as seed light optic sources, and double-clad fibers are used as amplifiers to easily obtain high average power and high pulses.
- High-power fiber lasers with high beam quality in the direction of higher brightness are in strong demand in scientific research and military fields. The main users are scientific research institutions, universities, and government departments.
- The development towards a higher power. Driven by the demand for high-tech fields such as shipbuilding and aerospace and the wide application of additive manufacturing technology, higher output power has become one of the main research contents of fiber laser development. The output power of fiber laser will change from Hundred watts and kilowatts are developing towards 10,000 watts.
- Modularization and intelligence In order to meet the various needs of lasers in the market, fiber lasers will gradually move towards serialization, combination, standardization, and generalization.
- Ultrashort pulse fiber lasers. In the field of laser fine processing, such as perforating brittle materials and cutting sapphire glass, ultra-fast ultra-short pulse fiber lasers are required.

How to Buy The Fiber Laser Source?
- If you are an integrated manufacturer of laser machines, you can directly contact the laser source manufacturer to get a quote and support, because there will be a good discount for large QTY purchases.
- If you want to DIY fiber laser machine, We recommend that you find an experienced factory to cooperate with. Some companies are large and look professional, but they are not intended to provide the laser source to you, and some trading companies just Selling goods and disable to provide follow-up services, so for fiber lasers, the technology items, we must find a suitable supplier with technical support. This is very important, which can reduce a lot of future troubles. GYC laser would like to support you on the back with a reliable fiber laser technical engineer team.
- If you just want to buy a fiber laser source to upgrade your plasma cutting machine or a low-power laser cutting machine by yourself, then you can choose GYC laser, we are the strategic partner of Raycus and Ipg Laser, which means we can get the original laser source and support, Meanwhile, as a professional laser equipment manufacturer, we have rich experiences in laser equipment manufacturing and industrial applications. We can share this with you without any extra cost.
