Photonic Products (Hatfield Broad Oak, UK) announces a new range of variable focus industrial laser diode modules constructed to withstand the harshest conditions and satisfy the most challenging of industrial applications. These products offer the high performance and the high boresight accuracy of <0.25 degrees of the existing range of standard industrial laser modules with the added bonus of user-adjustable focus for greater flexibility and fine tuning.
The range is designed to be a complete OEM laser solution for heavy duty manufacturing processes such as micromachining, marking, cutting, drilling, welding, forming, soldering, and many other industrial laser uses where superior quality, durability, and robust performance are critical. To this end, the industrial modules are encapsulated in a hard-coat anodized case with a scratch-resistant sapphire window to protect the lens
They are designed and built for ease of use - any time the laser needs to be changed, the connectors; either 2.5mm DC jack or industrial screw-on, make child's play of installation and replacement and their compact size allows for easy and efficient integration into existing production systems.
The variable focus industrial laser module is available in a variety of wavelengths from 635nm to 830nm with optical output powers from 0.97mW to 27.50mW, with either a standard elliptical output beam or line generating optics that generate a 45, 60, or 90 degrees full fan angle line giving straight-line precision without bowing. The beam is aligned to <0.25degrees to the mechanical axis of the laser giving high boresight accuracy.
