Laser Components now distributes a range of pattern projection diffractive optical elements (DOEs) manufactured by Flexpoint, for use in any Flexpoint low power laser module.
DOEs are inexpensive and easy-to-use tools able to create many diverse patterns utilising a dot shaped laser beam. Crosses, (multiple) lines, circles, grids and dot matrices are a few examples of what is possible.
The DOEs can either be built into a laser, or added as a removable part to almost any Flexpoint laser. Thus, with only a single laser and various DOEs, users can have a number of application possibilities.
Applications include alignment and position marking tasks (crosses) as well as image processing (multiple lines, grids, circles).
