Z-Laser announces ZM12 family of small lasers now supports HLD

ILS_2012_1_Z-Laser

Z-LASER, Freiburg, Germany, has announced that its ZM12 family of small lasers now supports homogeneous light distribution (HLD).

Following the successful integration of the new Powell lens technology into its ZM18 laser family, the company has adapted the improved HLD technology to its ZM12 family of lasers, which were previously only available with Gaussian light distribution.

Encased in a 45 mm housing, the ZM12 laser projects a line with ±5% homogeneity of light distribution. With guaranteed light distribution across the projected line, machine vision algorithms will produce results with greater accuracy than with Gaussian light distribution.

"Improving the performance of the Powell lens technology is quite an engineering feat," explains Ralph Tesson, director, Z-LASER America. "This kind of homogeneity can produce excellent results, especially when using slightly longer camera exposures for applications that previously might have required a speckle-reduced laser."

The ZM12 production series is a compact, entry-level laser product for profiling or positioning applications in the machine vision, automotive, medical equipment, or textile industries.
