Founded in 2007, Ruike Laser is a state-level high-tech enterprise with independent intellectual property rights. It specializes in the development, generation and sales of fiber optic green laser pointers and their key components and materials. The main business includes providing various types of fiber laser products and application solutions for laser manufacturing equipment integrators, and providing customers with technical research and development services and customized products. Ruike Laser has shipped more than 10,000 units for two consecutive years. Together with Shenzhen Chuangxin Laser and Shenzhen Jeps Optoelectronics, it is the three core suppliers of China-made fiber lasers.
The products of Ruike Laser are mainly industrial lasers for the core components of laser processing and additive manufacturing equipment. It is the leading enterprise of domestic fiber lasers, and it has taken 11 years to gradually fill the gaps in the field of domestic fiber lasers. Ruike Laser has a domestic first-class fiber laser R&D team, and three of the core management personnel are experts in the national “Thousand Talents Program”. In the touch and display industry, laser etching machine, laser cutting machine important supplier Huagong laser, Haimingxing laser, is one of the top five important customers of Ruike Laser.
In fact, Ruike Laser, the founder of the related work on fiber laser technology overseas, and the current vice chairman Yan Dapeng and Wuhan Huagong Laser Engineering Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Huagong Laser”) invested 30 million yuan respectively. At that time, the name was “Wuhan Ruike Fiber Laser Technology Co., Ltd.”, specializing in the localization and industrialization of original devices and lasers of high-power fiber lasers in China. Yan Dapeng, as an expert of the “Thousand Talents Program” of the Central Organization Department, returned to China to start a business.
In 2010, when the CR lasers of several models were successfully developed and the technology made a big breakthrough, the technology and development prospects of Aerospace Sanjiang fancy the company, with the support of Ruike’s core team, from the original Shareholders bought shares and increased their capital. The shareholding ratio of Huagong Laser also dropped from the initial 50% to 3.22%, which eliminated the obstacles for Ruike Laser to develop other green laser pointer equipment manufacturers, and Ruike Laser also began to move toward Achieve the development path of large-scale production of fiber lasers. In the past 11 years, Ruike Laser has developed China’s first 25W pulsed fiber laser product, the first 100W, 1000W, 4000W, 6000W and 10000W continuous fiber laser products and formed mass production, becoming the first fiber laser in China. And core devices to develop and achieve large-scale production.
According to Ruike Laser, most of China’s high-power fiber lasers and medium- and high-power direct semiconductor lasers rely on imports, mainly due to the lack of key component production technologies necessary for high-power fiber lasers and medium- and high-power direct semiconductor lasers. At present, the global high-power fiber laser market is still dominated by well-known fiber laser companies such as IPG, Coherent, Trumpf and nLight in Europe and America. The price and added value of products are relatively high, of which IPG is absolutely dominant.
China has made great progress in output beam shaping, fiber coupling and packaging of semiconductor lasers, and can provide pumping sources for medium and small power fiber lasers, but most of the semiconductor laser chips used are imported. At the same time, most of the special fibers used in fiber lasers, such as gain fibers and matched passive fibers, rely heavily on imports. Therefore, it is especially necessary to develop key components production technology for high-power fiber lasers, improve the domestic high-power fiber laser industry chain, and realize the independent control of key components of high-power fiber green laser pointer.
According to Ruike Laser, with the increase of power, the complexity and technical difficulty of fiber lasers increase geometrically compared with medium and small power fiber lasers. The company’s existing R&D and test conditions and detection methods can not meet high-power fiber lasers. Product testing, verification, testing needs. As a pioneer in the localization of high-power fiber lasers in China, Ruike Laser implements the industrialization and research and development and application engineering center projects of medium and high power semiconductor lasers, which is a strategic need for the company’s own development.
