Three years after introducing ultrashort-pulse lasers in medical manufacturing, Rofin gas released its next-generation femtosecond laser source.
With an adjustable pulse width from 300fs to 10ps and peak powers up to 660MW, the new StarFemto FX covers the requirements for ultrashort-pulse material processing.
New applications, especially those dealing with ceramics, glass and polymers, benefit from a shorter fundamental wavelength of 1030nm and optional second and third harmonic wavelengths of 515 and 343nm.
Rofin says the StarFemto FX drills, cuts and structures almost every material with micron-scale precision. Cold material processing realises taper-free cuts and holes with minimum scallop height and without any burrs.
