Luxinar has developed new laser cutting, marking, and drilling technologies which it will showcase at the ATX trade fair in Minneapolis US, in October 2023, including its first line of ultrashort laser sources.
The products include the firm’s SR e and x series of carbon dioxide lasers. The 9.3µm SR e series is designed for applications such as polarising film processing, bonding agent removal, and laser texturing, which Luxinar says require high edge quality and minimal disturbance to surrounding areas.
The products in this line, along with their average and peak output power, include:
- SR 10e (115W, 330W)
- SR 15e (160W, 460W)
- SR 10x (105W, 235W)
- SR 15x (150W, 335W)
- SR 25x (210W, 465W)
The SR e and x series have an IP66 rating, ensuring protection against water and dust ingress, and feature a user-friendly control interface and compact mechanical design, the firm says.
Luxinar will also showcase the SR AOM series, which features powers of up to 150W. This series is designed for high-precision applications that require minimal heat-affected zones, such as multilayer thin film cutting for the display market and high-resolution/speed marking.
The SR AOM laser is integrated with an acousto-optic modulator, and achieves optical rise and fall times of less than 1µs, the firm says, reducing unnecessary heat energy compared to typical pulse rise/fall times of approximately 60µs.
Luxinar will also showcase its first range of ultrashort pulse laser sources, the LXR series, with an output power of up to 120W. The LXR features a short pulse width (800 ± 100fs), allowing ultrahigh precision micro- and nanofabrication of various components. Luxinar says the LXR provides high throughput and repeatability, and its fast burst mode increases material removal.
