Prisma 1064-20-V

Share this on social media:

The latest addition to Coherent's Prisma series solid-state infrared and green lasers offers the highest output power available to date. The new Prisma 1064-20-V is a q-switched, Nd:YVO4 laser that delivers 20W at 1064nm. With 25 per cent higher output power than previously available, this laser enables faster throughput and reduced processing times, with a low cost per Watt.


The new Prisma 1064-20 offers the same superior reliability and performance characteristics as other lasers in the series. The new model provides excellent transverse mode quality (M²<1.3) and high pulse-to-pulse stability (<2 per cent rms from 40-100kHz), while enabling complete control over pulse-energy and timing. The laser uses field-proven AAA-material pump diodes and is factory-sealed for high reliability, even when operating in harsh, industrial environments.


Together, all these features make the Prisma 1064-20-V suitable for a variety of marking and materials processing applications. These include ID card marking and keypad marking, as well as solar-cell or mould form manufacturing.
