Let us help select the right configuration for you!

We have been working with QLI for ~10 years, and their dedication to customers, exceptional support and service, and willingness to customize a laser has been demonstrated many times. For instance, a customer stuck with an unforgiving integration space to squeeze a 100 mJ-class laser into. QLI was able to easily modify the Q2HE package to fit their existing space, saving a redesign of the customer’s system. In another instance, a customer was having an unexpected issue with their laser, and QLI made immediate arrangements to visit their facility. After observing the laser’s excessively harsh operating environment, QLI redesigned the laser for their application to enhance its robustness and long-term performance in such conditions.

QLI is more than just a laser manufacturer. They’re a partner. They understand that every customer is unique and are committed to providing configurable solutions tailored to your specific needs. They’re there when you need them and ready to go the extra mile to ensure you’re getting the most out of their products.
