How Laser Cleaning Works?

What is Laser Cleaning?


Laser cleaning systems like the CleanTech laser rust remover work by focusing a powerful laser on an area that the operator intends to clean. The technology can effectively clean substances like corrosion, residue, rust and paint from various materials without damaging the underlying surface.

The energy put out during laser cleaning allows for contaminants to be accurately and quickly removed from substrates while keeping the operator safe from harmful chemicals and substances.

Due to this technology’s ability to precisely clean items, industry professionals are able to achieve the results they need.

Benefits of Laser Cleaning

Operator Safety

Laser cleaning eliminates the need for hazardous consumables that harm the health of operator


Laser cleaning is precise and accurate, allowing for the effective treatment of targeted surfaces.


The technology can be automated, further enhancing efficiency while reducing the need for manual labor


Laser cleaning technology can be tailored to fit the unique needs of operators regardless of the industry or application.


The process is non-contact, preventing physical damage to worked-on material.

No Secondary Waste

Laser cleaning produces minimal waste and no pollution, making it environmentally friendly.

Safety Advantages

Laser cleaning is an operator-safe and healthy method of industrial cleaning that eliminates the risk of silicosis that traditional methods like sandblasting can cause. We provide laser cleaning systems that are designated by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) as Class 4 lasers. Several of our cutting-edge products meet 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.

Our systems of laser rust removers have an added level of security when compared to others on the market, as they are equipped with multiple state-of-the-art safety features. These products are equipped with a manual reset, a key-locked laser power switch, and a remote interlock connector, which all serve to prevent accidental exposure to laser radiation. Other features include an exhaust outlet for fume extraction and a Class 4 operator safe viewing port for safe observation of the laser cleaning process and easier alignment.
