Order is for LASY series power supplies by PBF in various configurations for ideally adapted number of channels in laser systems. +++ LASY series builds on PBF’s successful standard and semi-standardized High Power Platform for fast and cost-attractive customization. +++ Order amount in the middle six-digit EUR range. Annual revenue potential following system introduction in 2020: approx. EUR 2 to 3 million.
Brunnthal/Munich, Germany, October 17, 2018 – PBF Group B.V., Dutch subsidiary of SFC Energy AG (F3C:DE, ISIN: DE0007568578), a leading provider of hybrid power solutions to the stationary and mobile power generation markets, announces the receipt of a series order from their partner Schulz-Electronic GmbH, Baden-Baden, Germany: An international laser tool producer has ordered fully integrated LASY laser power supply systems for the direct operation of diode pumped fiber lasers used in material processing. The first series order amount is in the middle six-digit EUR range. Following system introduction in 2020, PBF expects annual revenues of EUR 2 to 3 million for the subsequent period.
Laser diodes require very stable, precise, often highly dynamic power supplies. PBF’s powerful power supplies feature an extremely high energy density solution for the highly sensitive laser diode loads. Dynamic load adjustment between grid connection and laser unit ensures optimum efficiency with the dynamic, fast pulsability required in laser systems. The power supplies also significantly increase total system performance and lifetime, enabling new and optimized applications.
The series order is the result of the success of PBF’s prototype power supplies in the customer’s laser systems. PBF developed the LASY laser power supply system on the basis of their successful standard and semi-standardized PBF High Power Standard Platform. The fully integrated plug & play solution combines a high performance PBF power supply with multiple pulsable current drivers, and eliminates the need for external modules the customer had to purchase separately in the past. Load current supply can be configured and scaled on demand, featuring attractive new options plus decisive cost, quality and service advantages.
“Our PBF LASY systems adapt flexibly to the different electric conditions of the producers’ respective laser diodes. In addition, they enable exact and precise dimensioning of the required electrical output power to meet existing circumstances”, says Hans Pol, Managing Director of PBF and President Industrial of SFC Energy. “This unbeatable flexibility, together with the attractive price and performance benefits, open up an increasing number of new applications and customer segments for our high performance power supplies. We see a substantial potential for them in the international laser industry and many other applications requiring ultimate flexibility and cost efficiency.“
