DPSS Lasers Inc. (Santa Clara, Calif., U.S.) is featuring its Samurai UV Laser at its CAMX 2019 booth, showcasing its higher-power UV laser solutions and fully automated systems.
DPSS Lasers specializes in manufacturing 355-nm, UV laser markers, as well as low-cost UV lasers said to have high peak powers and repetition rates ideal for marking and engraving materials such as HDPE, ceramic, plastics and metals. The Samurai uses a 355-nm wavelength to provide a small spot size and large depth of focus. DPSS says that its UV lasers take advantage of a “cold” marking process that does not require high average power levels and allows damage-free marking on many materials. UV lasers are also being used in carbon fiber surface prep.
In addition, DPSS emphasizes that its higher-power UV lasers and shorter pulse widths are now be integrated, including its UV lasers with average power levels from 1-55 watts are now being integrated, as well as nanosecond, picosecond and femtosecond UV lasers. Booth T62.
ATL and AFP-based preforming options now abound for processing dry and/or impregnated reinforcements as quickly as 1 minute or less with potential yearly part yields in the millions.
Tremendous secrecy and non-disclosure has kept this profitable composites application out of the spotlight, while it has enabled the current shale oil energy boom.
