Technology spikes lasers' output intensity. (Spotlight: welding).

Used in the automotive industry for fuel injector and component welding and cutting tubes and frames, JK401 and JK501 laser processing systems provide industrial precision welding and high-speed cutting of metallic materials. They offer 400 or 500-W power aided by SuperModulation technology. SuperModulation momentarily doubles the lasers' output intensity. It also provides operators control of weld penetration, heat-effected zones, cooling rates, kerf quality, cornering speed, and burnback. …
