How to Choose the Right Laser Cleaning Machine?

Indicational Surface Cleaning capacity for each laser power

This are only indicational values for Reference, based on our own experience, each case must be checked specific and results depend on the layers and the underground

What is a MOPA Laser and What is it Used For?

Fiber lasers, be it pulsed or continuous wave, have prevailed in nearly all industries for marking, engraving, cleaning. The fiber lasers that are used for industrial part cleaning usually are either Q-switch or MOPA lasers. As of today, Q-switch lasers are more limited but more common because they have already existed on the market for a longer time and cheaper. That is why they are mostly offered on "entry level" machines and called “standard laser”. But due to their high flexibility, MOPA lasers are the best new alternative for most applications.

What does the term MOPA mean?

The term MOPA is an abbreviation for Master Oscillator Power Amplifier. The master oscillator, which can handle much higher frequencies and give shorter and better controllable pulses than others, produces the beam while the optical amplifier is used for boosting the output power.

MOPA makes all the difference

Key to the new method of precision laser cleaning is the use of a different type of laser called MOPA (short for Master Oscillator Power Amplifier). “We found a highly skilled partner that specializes in laser cleaning, using MOPA laser technology.

What sets this laser technology apart from the more commonly used standard pulsed laser cleaning technology, is that it allows us to set both the pulse frequency and pulse time in order to better control the cleaning process. We can also reach much higher pulse rate frequencies and shorter pulse times, this with result to be much more carefull for the underground.

It has taken us a considerable amount of time and effort to perfectly tune this technology to our needs. But I am happy to say that we have managed to succeed and now come up with a completely new and innovative solution: the MOPA Cleaning Laser.
