The Rapid series of high power industrial picosecond lasers is offered in two configurations: 6W at 1064 nm and 1000 kHz, and 10W at 1064 nm and 1000 kHz. The lasers are ideal for industrial microprocessing of a wide range of materials.

High-Power Industrial Picosecond Laser

The RAPID series of picosecond lasers are designed for industrial microprocessing. They offer a new level of precision and versatility.

The RAPID series - integrated into a work station - can ablate (micromill) any material without thermal side effects, without force onto the work piece and with high precision (µm-range lateral, about 10 nm depth control).

The RAPID consists of a sealed, compact laser head and a power supply. It only requires an ordinary main connection. The internal cooling system makes it independent from environmental conditions. The included intuitive software controls all laser functions via internal industrial PC. An optional DLL allows control of the laser via an external network.
