Menlo Systems’ refurbished C-Fiber 780 High Power erbium-doped femtosecond fibre laser now offers increased output powers at 780nm and 1,560nm
The Menlo Systems BlueCut femtosecond laser enables fast and efficient processing at low cost of ownership. With its femtosecond burst mode feature and repetition rate ranging from single-shot to 10MHz the user can be sure to achieve maximum efficiency and ablation rates for your process. In addition to that, fast external tuneability of the pulse energy allows processing with constant fluence across the part, even with changing spot overlap.
Matthew Dale explores some of the latest technology for manipulating and measuring the beam, including a multi-spot optical module for laser brazing and a contactless beam analysis device
Moving to very high power lasers for welding metals, like aluminium in car production, has some big benefits, as Greg Blackman finds out
