TLM Laser continues to expand its portfolio of laser-based technologies and systems, by announcing a new partnership agreement with German laser surface processing specialist 4Jet Lasr Technology GmbH. The addition of laser cleaning technology to the company’s product offering complements their range of laser processes including: welding, cutting, marking, engraving, hardening and 3D additive layer manufacturing.
The new handheld JETLASER platform from 4JET has many potential applications including cleaning of moulds, tools, fixtures, paint and coating removal operations and pre-treatment of surfaces prior to welding, glueing or coating applications. The JETLASER is currently available in two power levels, 200 W & 500 W average laser power.
The hand held unit has been designed to offer improved ergonomics and safety. Rather than conventional single hand devices that operate in a similar manner to a gun, the symmetrical 4JET system is based on a two-hand operation that provides for more comfortable use during processing. The 3D printed enclosures on the handheld device mean that it is extremely light to handle and use. The unit is powered by fibre-coupled, maintenance free solid-state lasers, that are integrated into a rugged mobile supply unit.
