Coherent has expanded its family of industrial ultrafast lasers with the Talisker HE series. The laser has high energy pulses for drilling, cutting, and scribing.
Talisker HE lasers are available with a choice of output options: 200µJ pulse energy in the near-IR (1,064nm); 120µJ per pulse in the green (532nm); or 40µJ pulse energy in the ultraviolet (355nm). The laser is ideal for high-throughput, precision materials processing in industries such as automotive, biomedical, consumer electronics, mobile display, and 3D semiconductor.
Talisker lasers are a family of industrial picosecond products, delivering a high quality process finish. The pulse energy of the new Talisker HE series is significantly higher than other lasers in the Talisker family. The higher pulse energy extends the optical depth of the focused beam so that cold ablation occurs throughout the full thickness of the target material, eliminating thermal debris.
The higher energy pulses are used in a variety of materials processing techniques: single shot pulses replace percussively drilled holes; very thick materials are drilled with reduced taper; engraving and trepanning benefit from deeper, high aspect ratio structuring.
The laser has superior pointing stability, critical to drilling thick materials where the pulses must be directed to the target with dependable accuracy.
