On September 4, Maxphotonics and Bodor Laser jointly launched the latest 40KW laser cutting equipment. The 40KW multi module CW fiber laser has set the highest domestic record for the power of similar industrial cutting application fiber lasers, and the 6KW single module CW fiber laser is also broke the highest record of domestic industrial single module fiber laser.
At the press conference, Maxphotonics and Bodor Laser respectively explained the latest technology, give a shot to the 10KW class laser market to help accelerate the recovery of the national manufacturing industry.

After more than ten years of rapid catch-up, the technology of low and medium power domestic fiber lasers is basically the same as overseas products. In terms of high power fiber laser, especially ultra high power, Maxphotonics 40KW is not only broken the imagination of the industry but also will inevitably have a positive effect on the research and development of China' score technology, let the national industrial manufacturing has a strong "Chinese-core".
Before 2008, fiberlaser technology was monopolized by several overseas brands for a long time, the Chinese laser industry completely relied on imports. The lack of technology directly led to the loss of pricing power of laser equipment manufacturers in my country, the price of laser equipment remained high, limited the popularization of domestic laser technology applications.
Since then, domestic companies represented by Maxphotonics have explored fiber laser technology and realized the localization of fiber lasers in 2011, breaking the technical barriers abroad. Maxphotonics took the lead in capturing industry trends and vigorously developing ultra high power industrial lasers.
During the three years from 2017 to 2019, Maxphotonics launched 10KW-35KW CW fiber lasers for the industrial cutting market. Because of its efficiency, quality, and cost, it has completely subverted the previous traditional processing ability to promote the rapid development of the laser equipment industry to ultra high power. Nowadays, the performance of 40KW CW fiber laser will once again subvert the efficiency standards, quality output standards, and costing methods of the metal processing industry, driving the metal processing industry from not only large but strong.
Maxphotonics 40KW multi module CW fiber laser technology breakthroughs based on our core optical components, such as high power pump technology, high power stripper technology, high power combiner technology, third generation integrated LOE, single module 6KW technology , and the first made-in-China EtherCAT bus laser control technology, all these technologies are integrated on 40KW, undoubtedly redefining the parameters of ultra high power core components.
Maxphotonics cooperates with various domestic part supplies to break through the technical difficulties of ultra high power. This vertically integrated ecological chain mode will promotes the comprehensive upgrade of all upstream supplies including domestic chips and domestic optical fibers. At the same time, it promotes the laser cutting head, operating software, laser equipment system and other peripheral equipment to continuously move closer to the latest 10KW class laser products of Maxphotonics.
The 40KW brand new technical solutions and parameters bring an opportunity for win-win cooperation. This upstream and downstream linkage effects far exceed the value brought by a single product.
The launch of 40KW fiber laser is a true reflection of the independent research and development capabilities of Maxphotonics' core optical components, and to a certain extent represents the current technical level of fiber lasers in the field of ultra high power.
Using the domestic maximum power single module 6KW for combination means that it can use fewer modules, more optimized integration, and output more stable and efficient processing capabilities.
Based on the single module 6KW, the 20KW with 100μm core diameter has been developed to ensure better beam quality, 25m fiber cable is more convenient for local customers’ needs for large-format machine tools, stable processing integrated design LOE, and the first domestically produced EtherCAT bus control, etc., it shows that 40KW brings together many of the latest research and development achievements in the laser field, these technologies will surely further stimulate the comprehensive capacity of 10KW-30KW.
After the peak period of COVID‐19 in China, the state advocated internal circulation to revitalize the domestic economy, new infrastructure and new urban infrastructure became the key to boosting the economy. Heavy machinery, urban rail transit, high speed rail and new energy industries have strong manufacturing and processing demands.
The birth of 10KW class lasers is a good solution to the contradiction between efficiency and quality. At the same time, the laser industry has experienced several vicious competitions, and the gross profit rate of the whole industry has declined across the board, end users urgently need more efficient, lower cost, and higher quality equipment and tools.
The domestic 10KW class laser can reduce dimensionality and strike to ensure the benefit advantage. With the gradual popularization of 12KW and 15KW, 20KW has entered the end user side, and 30KW will pass all the tests and will be launch soon. The 40KW complete cutting solution is bound to lead the new development trend.
Since Maxphotonics launched the first 10KW multi module CW fiber laser in 2017, Maxphotonics 25KW ultra high power multi module CW fiber laser obtained the registration certificate of scientific and technological achievements issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in 2019. This is also the first domestic 10KW class CW fiber laser that has passed national certification.
All products developed by Maxphotonics must be seamlessly connected from the laboratory to the user's processing site. Continuously formulate R&D plans from the first-line needs, and iterate quickly to meet market needs.
Maxphotonics' 10KW class CW fiber laser is not only to fill the technological gap in Chinese high power and ultra high power fields but more importantly to become the backbone of driving the upgrade of laser processing products.
This year, Maxphotonics has a total of more than 300 sets of 10KW class CW fiber lasers that will undertake production tasks on the front line of various sheet metal cutting processes. The launch of 40KW will also expand the application space of sheet metal cutting and undertake more arduous tasks.
With the completion of the joint launch of Maxphotonics and Bodor Laser 40KW, it also indicates that the new journey of ultra high power will begin simultaneously. The landing of 40KW and higher power in the future is a demonstration and leading role for national manufacturing capacity, industrial transformation and upgrading, and sheet metal cutting practitioners. Maxphotonics dares to take the lead in the world, and the significance of this step forward is to inspire more like-minded people to help the development of China's laser industry.
