CARBIDE – flexible beyond expectation

Along with the 80 W, 40 W, and 20 W models of CARBIDE femtosecond laser, LIGHT CONVERSION now offers an 80 W model with  2 mJ pulse energy! The reliability of CARBIDE femtosecond laser has been proven by hundreds of systems operating 24/7 in the industrial environment. The lasers are mainly used for a variety of material micro-machining tasks, such as drilling and cutting various metals, polymers, ceramics, sapphire, and glass, as well as state-of-the-art research.

The entire 20 W / 40 W / 80 W series shares the following features:

•          Market-leading pulse-to-pulse energy stability and long-term power stability

•          Tunable GHz and MHz burst with burst-in-burst (BiBurst) functionality

•          Pulse-to-pulse energy modulation via FEC (fast energy control)

•          Excellent beam quality and beam pointing stability

•          Automated harmonic generator option for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th harmonics

•          Module for wavelength tunability – industrial-grade optical parametric amplifier I-OPA

•          Switch to nanosecond operation, expanding the range of microprocessing tasks from a single laser source

•          Same dimensions for all models for simple integration into micro-machining workstations

•          Exceptional laser reliability providing multiple years of maintenance-free operation in an industrial environment

CARBIDE series also offers a model for high-power UV applications mainly within the electronics and semiconductor markets. Detailed information and CARBIDE specifications can be found here.
