Southampton, UK - The new Hylase 1064 nm picosecond laser from Fianium, based on state-of-the-art fiber laser technology, provides high stability and long lifetime, making it useful for 24/7 industrial use. The remote laser head, with a small footprint and low weight, offers easy integration and class-leading power and pulse energy performance.
With a pulsewidth of less than 20 ps, the Hylase-25 system produces a maximum pulse energy of 125 μJ and an average output power of greater than 25 W. The Gaussian (TEM00) beam profile, with an M2 < 1.3, allows small feature sizes for high-precision material processing applications. The excellent beam-quality, picosecond pulse-width and high pulse energy, enables focussed intensities of the order of GW/cm2 and fluence in the kJ/cm2 range.
The lower power Hylase-8 system outputs an impressive 50 μJ at 100 kHz. An optional second harmonic generation module converts the wavelength to 532 nm.
The multi-megawatt peak-power delivered by the Hylase system is suitable for processing the most demanding materials including transparent glasses and plastics. Typical applications include photovoltaic & electronics production, display glass processing and security and decorative marking.
System advantages include short pulsewidth and high pulse energy, compact form factor, high throughput processing, low maintenance, and variable repetition rate.
