AMTRON introduces high-power industry-ready laser-diode controllers at Laser 2007
AMTRON's developments are going from strength to strength as was vividly evident at this year's Laser 2007 in Munich. At the center of interest were the new high-power devices of the CS400 series, the laser-diode controllers which offer CW and pulse mode (QCW – Quasi Continuous Wave) and are at the forefront of current developments. "What impresses the customers most is that our products are industry-ready, and that sets us apart from the competition," says Hans-Dieter Gehlen, Managing Director of Marketing and Sales at AMTRON GmbH in Wuerselen, Germany.
With powers of up to 300 A with a diode voltage of 80V and a duty cycle of 10%, AMTRON's CS400 series laser-diode controllers exhibit excellent stability as displayed by more that 1000 installations worldwide. "With the trend towards higher-power devices, we have precisely met the demands of the market. We will continue to work on these developments in the coming months," says Gehlen.
AMTRON GmbH presented two other innovations at this year's Laser:
Gehlen draws a positive conclusion following the Laser 2007 in Munich: "The exhibition was a great success for us and it surpassed the results of the previous Laser. The quality of the contacts at the new stand location in Hall B3 was extremely high. We were able to present our product innovations in the best way possible to our target group."
The positive feedback received from existing and potential customers has already been implemented in AMTRON's product planning. For the third and fourth quarters of 2007, new devices in the CS 400 series are planned which offer powers exceeding 300 A. Also on the roadmap is a further increase in the duty cycle. AMTRON is also seeing growing interest from the field of system integration where customized solutions are being implemented mainly in large-scale projects. Along with the contacts to their familiar markets, AMTRON also registered an increase in demand from new areas, including the first application of their laser systems in the motor industry.
Gehlen adds to this positive conclusion with a look to future exhibitions: "In Munich we saw once again just how vital it is to have contact to industry specialists. To substantiate the international activities of AMTRON, we are currently preparing to take part in industry exhibitions in Asia and the USA to present our products directly to these growth markets.
