Lasers for machine vision

Share this on social media:

Power Technology (PTI) has introduced an expanded line of its PNF series drop-in replacement lasers designed specifically for machine vision applications. This new line increases the available choices of structured light lasers designed for production efficiency, quality control and inspection.

PTI’s laser designs are suitable for biomedical, semiconductor, industrial, defence and security markets, and are now bringing further design and manufacturing capabilities to a broader customer base within the machine vision industry. The applications include laser modules designed for machine vision, 3D profiling and mapping, dimensional scanning, high-speed rail and road inspection, web inspection, fluorescence and illumination.

The PNF Series can deliver from 1.0 to 150mW of output power with a wavelength range between 635nm and 1,550nm. Additional features include uniform intensity (non-Gaussian) line generators, variable focus technology, a wide choice of fan angles, high wavelength stability, high optical power stability, and CW or optional digital/analogue modulation at greater than 2MHz.
