LightMachinery’s IMPACT-4000 series of pulsed CO2 lasers are optimized for 24/7 precision processing and drilling of non-metallic materials. The material interaction of the short, high-power pulses from TEA (Transversely Excited Atmospheric) CO2 lasers is quite different from that of long pulse and continuous CO2 lasers.
High-definition processing with excellent edge quality can be obtained. Plastic materials can be selectively removed from a metal backing, leaving the metal layer untouched. For many applications, IMPACT-4000 lasers offer a lower cost alternative to excimer lasers.
The fully configurable IMPACT-4000 series lasers are designed for scientific and specialized applications. The short pulse of the thyratron-switched IMPACT-4000 series is ideal for ultrasound applications as well as applications in infrared chemistry.
IMPACT-4000 lasers can be configured with a tunable option and set up in a master oscillator / power amplifier (MOPA) configuration with additional amplifiers to achieve the right power at the right wavelength for your application.
IPACT-4000 series lasers can be supplied in a range of standard multi-module oscillators and MOPA configurations. The beam parameters (divergence, linewidth, mode structure, range of wavelength tuning, etc.) are mainly defined by the master oscillator, and the final energy is mainly defined by the number of power amplifier modules.
