Collimation, Beam Shaping
Feb 2012AdlOptica GmbHRequest Info
AdlOptica GmbH's water-cooled Focal-πShaper is designed to operate with high-power (>1 kW) fiber lasers. It combines the functions of collimation and beam shaping, converting with nearly 100% efficiency a divergent Gaussian laser beam into a collimated beam optimized to create flattop, doughnut and inverse Gauss profiles near lens focus. Advantages include efficient laser energy use, a reduced heat-affected zone, high-quality materials processing, compactness, easy integration into existing equipment, and operation with scanning optics. It is suitable for use in marking, selective laser melting, welding, scribing, dicing, micromachining, photovoltaics and drilling.
