Do It All with One Tool: CI’s New Corona Powered Laser Technology

Laser beams are specialists. Different types excel at different tasks. To do it all in your shop, you need the speed of high-power fiber lasers for thin metal processing, the quality of CO2 lasers for thick metal processing, and the high uptime and low operating costs of a fiber laser solution. Wouldn’t you think by now someone could come up with a way to combine all those operations into one tool?

Good news! Someone has.


A Whole New Ball Game
Corona fiber lasers feature programmable beam quality enabled by groundbreaking all-fiber technology from our partner, nLIGHT®, a global leader in high-power semiconductors and fiber lasers.

With a single Corona laser, users can rapidly select from high-intensity, small-spot-size beams to large, donut-shaped beams, and everything in between, on the fly and in real time. This dramatic advancement allows optimal thick and thin metal cutting, higher cutting speed and quality, and improved piercing and small-feature processing with the same tool.

Let’s face it. This is big. Using software to make laser beams programmable is truly revolutionary. Shops will no longer have to choose between purchasing multiple laser systems, accepting compromised performance from existing systems, or using complex, expensive, and fragile free-space optical technologies.

You Can Have the Best…
Corona's "no compromises" performance is unattainable with any other technology and is derived from its unique, all-fiber design. This maximizes laser lifespan with no maintenance or calibration requirements and no impact on power consumption, efficiency, size or installation requirements. Edge-quality and thickness-range benefits are achieved at full cutting speed to facilitate maximum productivity.

Greatly improved roughness, edge straightness and perpendicularity also do away with the need for post processing, enabling factory automation and “lights out” operation.

And Trash the Rest
Corona lasers eliminate the need for zoom process heads, fiber-to-fiber couplers, switches and other free-space optical approaches that increase system size and complexity and degrade performance and reliability.

Sound too good to be true? Trust us, this is not “unicorn technology” or an “available soon” preview. Corona laser technology exists and is available with our laser systems now. If you would like to learn more, contact us for a quote. Welcome to the future.
