NKT Photonics has entered into an agreement to acquire Onefive, an ultrafast laser manufacturer headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland
The European Appolo project, which aims to establish connections within the industrial laser processing ecosystem, is drawing to a close. Gediminas Raciukaitis, head of the department for laser technologies at the Center for Physical Sciences and Technology in Lithuania, updates on the outcomes
Onefive has released the Genki 10 XP picosecond laser featuring 100W output power in a compact package
Onefive has released the Origami – XP high energy femtosecond laser in a new single-box, air-cooled design. The laser now comes as an all-in-one solution with the laser head, controller, and air-cooling system integrated in one box.
Whilst being as small as 280 x 498 x 155mm the XP only weights 30kg. It provides flexible repetition rate from single-shot to 1MHz and comes with real-time pulse energy measurement and control, especially designed for demanding high-precision applications. Pulse sequences with arbitrary energy can be programmed.
