Description

Atlantic series lasers have been designed as a versatile tool for a variety of industrial material processing applications. They are compact, OEM rugged, with up to 60 W output power at 1064 nm. Featuring short pulse duration Atlantic series lasers offers minimized thermal damage to the material, what is becoming more and more important in wide range of industries: photovoltaics, electronics, biomedicine, automotive.
Innovative design, employing fiber based oscillator ensured excellent output beam parameters: M2 < 1.3 with pulse energy fluctuations < 1 %. All optical components are placed into sealed monolithic block thus ensuring reliable 24/7 operation.
High, up to 1 MHz repetition rate, combined with low maintenance requirements establishes this laser as good choice for industrial, high throughput material processing systems, requiring speed and precision. Optical components are installed in a robust, precisely machined monolithic aluminum block, which could be used as a separate module for customized solutions. The system is sealed to provide long term stable operation in manufacturing environments. Designed for robust, low maintenance operation, the Atlantic offers maximum reliability due to an optimized layout, PC controlled operation, a built-in self-diagnostics system and advanced status reporting. Superior beam quality allows easy focusing of the laser beam into the smallest spot size at various working distances and enables processing of practically any material.
The Atlantic series has been designed as a low-maintenance-costs solution. All replacement of consumables can be performed at user facilities by trained technicians.

High power, speed and precision processing with picosecond laser and polygon scanner

Picosecond lasers in many cases have shown excellent results of material processing for diverse applications. Limiting issues remains cost and efficiency of the processes.Current developments in high repetition rate lasers provides plenty of laser pulses which are able to ablate the material. However, spatial control of focused laser beam with the high precision is needed.Assessment of Next Scan Technologies polygon scanner LSE 170 (line 170 mm; 1064/532 nm) and Ekspla Atlantic 60 picosecond laser (60 W, 13 ps, 1 MHz). Polygon scanner is equipped with f-theta objective with focal length of 190 mm and provide telecentric imaging over 170 mm long scan line. Laser pulsing was controlled synchronizing it with polygon using SuperSync™ technology from Next Scan Technologies.Applicability of laser-polygon pair in precise laser processing was tested, checking adjustment and corrections options in precise beam spot deposition to the material.
