Lamp Pumped Nd:YAG Lasers Roadmap Statement

Starting in December 2013, the SPI Lasers facility in Rugby (formerly JK Lasers) commenced the wind down of its CW Lamp Pumped Solid State Lasers (CW LPSSL). The total market size for LPSSL’s continues to decline, with alternative, more efficient and lower operating cost technologies and products available.

Today we announce the transition of our remaining pulsed LPSSL products to TRUMPF.

In 2004, SPI Lasers launched its first CW fiber laser, which was followed in 2006 by its first pulsed fiber laser. Since these first product introductions, and the acquisition of JK Lasers in 2015, we have continued to increased both the power and peak performance of our fiber lasers to the point where many LPSSL applications can be addressed.

For the LPSSL applications that cannot be addressed by our fiber lasers, customers will be transitioned to the TRUMPF product line of LPSSL called TruPulse.
