BlueCut micro-Joule and Orange femtosecond fibre lasers

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.
