Scanner head developed for high-throughput laser texturing

The scanner is capable of producing periodic surface structures with features of around 3.5µm in size, which is about eight-times smaller than those achievable with conventional polygon scanners

The Lasea group now has 110 employees (above: Lasea, below: Optec), with more than 1,000 systems installed on five continents.

Lasea acquires micromachining firm Optec

The acquisition will enable the Lasea Group to offer a wider range of subtractive and additive laser solutions for the luxury goods, medical, electronics and academic sectors

Direct laser interference patterning can create complex surface micro-structures to decrease ice accumulation on aircraft surfaces. (Image: Fraunhofer IWS).

Laser research projects to increase fuel efficiency of ships and aircraft

A number of ongoing European research projects are using laser technology to structure and clean the surfaces of ships and aircraft in order to improve their fuel efficiency

This Lasea system uses two processing heads to direct two halves of a more powerful, single ultrafast pulse to the workpiece in order to increase processing throughput.

Wielding the increasing average power of ultrafast lasers

Matthew Dale explores the advantages of increasing the average power of ultrafast lasers, and discovers how this higher power can be delivered to the workpiece
