Home 9 News 9 PowerPhotonic is to demonstrate how optics can transform laser cutting, drilling and welding machine performance at EuroBLECH 2022

PowerPhotonic’s unique, new, Light Tunnel Generator, which transforms the laser cutting, welding, and drilling performance of sheet metal fabrication machines, will be on show at the EuroBLECH 2022 exhibition, in Hannover, later this month. EuroBLECH is the premier European trade show for international manufacturers and suppliers of sheet metal fabrication equipment and services, a multibillion dollar world market.

Dr. Stephen Kidd, Head of Sales and Marketing at PowerPhotonic, said, “PowerPhotonic is a specialist designer and manufacturer of precision, wafer-scale optics. The company’s Light Tunnel Generator improves the performance, reliability, and usability of sheet metal machines by improving the profile of the high-power, laser beams they use for cutting, welding and drilling. The Light Tunnel Generator, part of our beam shaper range, delivers a more accurate, ring-shaped spot with four times the depth of focus of its nearest alternative. This enables thicker metal sheets and plates to be processed more quickly.

“We invite the many sheet metal fabrication equipment manufacturers attending EuroBLECH to visit our booth. The Light Tunnel Generator can be custom-made, with a range of beam diameters and diverging or converging profiles, to suit a huge range of equipment and applications.”

The EuroBLECH exhibition is focused on smart manufacturing and innovation at every point in the sheet metal, technology supply chain. This includes the materials, machines, tools, and systems used, with an emphasis on automation, green energy, and sustainability.
