Fiber Laser: 20W-30W-50W Options

Fiber Lasers are a great leap forward in processing all metal and coated soft material applications. Our Fiber Lasers are easily integrated into industrial processes in comparison with conventional lasers due to:

  • State of the art, Air-cooled, Ytterbium Q-switched Fiber Laser up to 2mJ for marking on virtually any material 
  • CW or Q-switched Fiber laser options with high-repetition rate 
  • Excellent TEM00 beam quality (M2 < 1.05) 
  • Exceptional High Reliability with more than 30,000 hours estimated maintenance-free operation 
  • Very high 50,000 hours MTBF (100,000 hours typical on diodes) 
  • Flexible cable-beam delivery system 
  • No water cooling required 
  • Optimized for Direct Part Marking (DPM) applications including UDI/UID Barcoding and 3D Deep Engraving 

Q-Switched Fiber Laser

The Q-switched Fiber Laser is maintenance-free. It delivers an excellent diffraction-limited (TEM00 beam quality M2 < 1.05) laser beam directly to the worksite via a metal sheathed single-mode fiber cable. These compact service-free Fiber Lasers are designed to operate under high-shock, vibration and dust conditions in relatively high humidity across wide operating temperature ranges. State-of-the-art air-cooled Ytterbium lasers have a very high MTBF of 50,000 hours (100,000 hours typical on diodes).  There is no routine replacement of parts or materials scheduling requiring only a low voltage power source.  Fiber-to-Fiber architecture provides a robust, monolithic design with no optics to align, no mechanics to stabilize.  The laser is engineered for optimal power and density providing responsive performance for the most demanding applications.

Fantom CO˛ SLAB Laser: 30W-100W Options

Fonon Corporation’s proprietary Fantom CO˛ SLAB Lasers are a leap forward in laser technology.

Fantom CO˛ SLAB Laser: 30W-100W Options

Fantom F30/F100 CO˛ Slab Lasers are completely sealed units requiring no gas connections producing a beam that processes material at an average power of 30W/100W respectively. These CO˛ lasers provide a low M2 (<1.2), high quality beam that allows smaller focus spot sizes and incorporates Fonon  Technologies’ proprietary fast-rising square wave pulsing technology with repetition rates up to 25 kHz with an output wavelength of 10.6 microns. 

Scanning Head

The Scan Head is designed to quickly and precisely deflect and position laser beams with powers up to the kilowatt range.  With apertures of 20mm and 25mm, small spot sizes are achieved along with large image fields. Very stable operating conditions as well as high long-term stability are provided by air cooling of the entrance aperture, electronics, and galvanometer scanners and supplemented by air cooling of the deflection mirrors. The compact housing is dust proof and water spray resistant.

PC Based Controller

The PC-Based Controller is an industrial-grade PC in an open and upgradeable configuration incorporating the latest generation mother board and data storage devices.

The controller also includes an advanced Scan Head Digital Control Board and optically isolated I/O card. The unit operates on Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional with optional field correction software for demanding applications.

 

DSP Control Board

The PC Interface DSP Control Board provides synchronous, interference -resistant control of the scan system and laser in real time. A high performance signal processor and the supplied DLL simplify programming under Windows. Software instructions are loaded alternately in two list buffers processed by the DSP and output as 16-bit control signals every 10µs to the scan system.

The processor automatically performs vital steps such as micro-vectorization and image field correction. Laser control is synchronized with the scanner movements.

Precise, Maintenance Free Z-Axis Controller 

The Z-Axis Controller with an 8” vertical capability accommodates a variety of field replaceable lenses. Made of stainless-steel construction with contact free home and positioning sensor along with a life lubricated preloaded linear slide with dust protected way cover.
