Universal Laser Systems Awarded Patent for MultiWave Hybrid™ Technology

Scottsdale, AZ – August 16, 2016 - Universal Laser Systems, Inc. (ULS), a recognized world leader in laser materials processing, has been awarded a patent for its MultiWave Hybrid™ technology, US Patent No. 9,346,122.

The MultiWave Hybrid™ technology, combines beams from multiple lasers into a single, hybrid laser beam. Users can leverage this technology to combine a number of different laser power levels and wavelengths. Additionally, users can dynamically, individually control the lasers. For example, 1.06 µm, 9.3 µm and 10.6 µm laser beams can be combined in any proportion to create a number of desired effects on various materials.

This patented technology is an indispensable tool for manufacturing, material science and product development. It offers enhanced laser material processing flexibility and adaptability by providing users compatibility with the broadest range of materials within one laser system.

“This technology has the potential to produce new and novel methods of processing materials with laser energy by combining multiply wavelengths of laser energy into a single beam which can produce reactions from materials not seen or possible when only one wavelength is used,” said Chris Risser, ULS Director of Product Development.

It is ideal for processing many materials such as plastic films, industrial films, engineering plastics, laminating adhesives, composite materials as well as many others.

MultiWave Hybrid technology is currently available on the XLS platform.

The MultiWave Hybrid technology patent is one of many patents awarded to ULS since its inception in 1988. To learn more, visit
