It includes both a standard nanosecond laser and an ultrashort pulse (USP) laser, which provides nanometer-level precision but traditionally ablates at a much lower rate.
Ultrashort pulse lasers present a class of laser beam sources for industrial applications that offer outstanding features with respect to intensity, photon density and pulse duration.
The PeakDetect is ideal for applications involving ultrashort pulse lasers that can feature underlying non-linear distortion effects, pulsed lasers with changeable pulse durations, or applications where the results depend strongly on stable pulse conditions.
Athermal ultrashort pulse lasers eliminate the need for costly finishing operations to remove HAZ, saving time and money.
