“This new patent covers all forms of 3D printing, welding, and methods of opening up the keyhole using blue laser light,” said Dr. Mark Zediker, Founder and Chairman of NUBURU. “It is a core addition to the broad list of 34 patents NUBURU has already been awarded. Our IP portfolio widely covers blue laser technology, multimode and single-mode as well as broad applications within 3D printing and material processing, and we have an additional 79 pending patent applications, signaling the possibility for even further expansion of our portfolio.”
NUBURU’s blue lasers provide speed and quality control for metal processing operations, such as welding and additive manufacturing, particularly in growing industries like e-mobility and automotive. In these industrial applications, copper materials, stainless steel and aluminum are increasingly critical, and existing market technologies do not have the flexibility, speed or power to produce high-quality results. NUBURU’s industrial blue lasers leverage a fundamental physical advantage to produce defect-free welds up to ten times faster than the traditional approaches — all with the flexibility inherent to laser processing.
