Leading laser manufacturer Luxinar has developed the SR AOM range of sealed CO2 lasers for high-precision applications that require a significantly higher switching speed for faster scan speeds or a reduced heat-affected zone (HAZ).

The new SR 10 AOM and SR 25 AOM, both available at a wavelength of 9.3µm and with rated powers of 150W for the SR 25 AOM and 75W for the SR 10 AOM, add value to the established SR series of sealed CO2 laser sources from Luxinar. The integrated acousto-optic modulator (AOM) creates 60 times faster optical rise and fall times of less than 1µs, which can minimise unnecessary heat energy from typical pulse rise/fall times of approximately 60µs.

The AOM range provides superior pulse-to-pulse control, output power stability and an integrated and field-replaceable RF power supply for ease of installation and servicing at customer sites.  The SR AOM’s simple control interface and compact mechanical design allow easy integration into various laser-based processing machines, giving distortion-free materials processing.

Yannick Galais, Sales Director of Luxinar, explains: “Due to its precise pulse control, the SR AOM series is ideal for a variety of very fast high precision processes such as microfilm cutting and backlight engraving in the flat panel display market or scribing of brittle materials that need less HAZ like ceramics or graphite as used in electronics or battery cell manufacturing. “

In common with the rest of the SR series, the SR AOM range offers simple integration, clean and high-quality laser processing, and low running costs due to the virtually maintenance-free laser technology.
