Amplitude revealed its newest ultrafast laser, the Tangor 300, at the Laser World of Photonics in Munich, Germany, last week.

The new system has an average power of 300W and a pulse width less than 500 femtoseconds, making it the most powerful laser in its field, according to the firm. It is capable of supplying energy of up to 1,000µJ per pulse and offers a repetition rate up to 40MHz.

This combination of parameters offers continuous quality, combined with high productivity for manufacturers and researchers.

‘Tangor 300 is capable of handling all types of materials, covering a surface of 100mm² per second.’ said Vincent Rouffiange, sales and marketing director at Amplitude Laser Group. ‘This new ultrafast laser will enable our clients to multiplicate machining strategies via the perfect quality and productivity combination.’

Amplitude demonstrated the new laser’s capability in texturisation applications in a live demonstration at its booth at the Laser World of Photonics. The demonstration was performed via a live stream (see below) from the laboratory of its partner AlphaNov, a technology optic and lasers research centre.

The Tangor 300 was developed in collaboration with AlphaNov within the framework of the TresClean Project.
