Learn About The Components

Laser

The Q-switched Laser was specifically designed for maintenance-free applications.   It delivers a diffraction limited (M2<1.05) laser beam directly to the work site via a metal sheathed single-mode fiber cable.  These compact service-free Lasers are designed to operate under high shock, vibration and dust conditions in relatively high humidity across wide operating temperature ranges. Wall-plug efficiencies up to 50% result in a compact size, reduced utilities, and trouble-free air cooling. There is no routine replacement of parts or materials scheduling; they require only a low voltage power source

Cleaning Head

handheld laser cleaningThe Cleaning Head is designed to quickly and precisely deflect and position the laser beam.  Small spot sizes are achieved along with large image fields. Very stable operating conditions as well as high long-term stability are provided by pressurized air injection into the optical shroud and particle extraction between the optical and protection shroud layers. The compact housing is dust proof and water spray resistant.

 

Transparent Protective Window:

CDRH rated yellow transparent laser rated acrylic window for visualization of lasing processes and easier alignment.

  • Movable Laser Cleaning system

Movable Laser Cleaning System:

Movable Laser Cleaning system consists of laser, cleaning head, controls, and dust extractor/collector with extraction hose and replaceable filter bags.

Dust extractor unit is designed for use with an array of portable/movable laser cleaning systems. The 1/2HP motor pulls air through a heavy-duty, reusable, front drawer-mounted filter at a rate of 620 cfm. Cleaning the filter is a simple matter of pulling the drawer out and vacuuming the filter and is durable enough to be re-used.

  • Laser 0.5mJ, 1.0 mJ, 2.0 mJ or custom for up to 150 mJ for special applications
  • Motor:1/2HP, 1 Phase, 120V (up to 3HP for higher CFM and more powerful lasers)
  • Dimensions:24″ x 24″
  • System Height:53″
  • Overall Dimensions: 33″ tall x 25″ wide x 47″ deep
  • Weight: 120 lbs.
  • Heavy duty swivel casters for mobility
  • Heavy-duty induction motor pulls air downward.
  • Reusable pleated filter encased in metal tray for durability and quick cleaning.
  • Built-in casters for increased mobility in the shop environment.
  • Industrial on-off switch is positioned in front for operator convenience.
  • Industrial strength cabinet for durability.

Safety Considerations During Operation:  1064 nM wavelength laser light emitted from this laser system is invisible and may be harmful to the human eye.  Proper laser safety eye wear must be worn during operation at all times. 21CFR 1040.10 Compliance:

The CleanTech™ Handheldl is a  Class IV enclosed laser unit as designated by the CDRH and meets the full requirements for a stand-alone laser system as defined by 21 CFR 1040.10 under the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968.  As an added level of security, a redundantly switched safety interlock system helps prevent accidental exposure to excess laser radiation.  Plus the system is equipped with an electrical power manual reset, a key-locked laser power switch and a remote interlock connector.  Finally, the system has audible and visible emission indicators with five (5) second emission delay settings.  All these features, in combination, constitute the laser radiation safety system which allows the CleanTech™ units be used in a safe and secure manner.
