Z-Laser Optoelektronik presented, for the first time, its new laser projector ZLP at this year’s JEC Composites Show in Paris. Z-Laser’s laser projectors are usually used in the composite industry, in branches like ship building, vehicle construction, scale modelling or space and aeronautics. For example: assembling of rotor blades of wind turbines.

The ZLPs goal and difference to the conventional laser projectors is that ZLP, with its newly developed fibre coupled, now projects highly precise multi-coloured contours on different materials. 

At the JEC Paris a projector with a red (638nm) and a green (520nm) fibre source was presented. This source delivers an enhanced laser beam quality and visibility. Depending on chosen material, the contours can be projected in red, green or yellow.

The required data can be submitted either via Ethernet, PLC or serial input. Depending on clients specifications three different coolings are possible: passive, integrated thermoelectric cooler or water cooling. The ZLP operates with output ratings between 7mW up to max. 40mW (as special solution). The ZLP can work within the range of 0.5m up to 7.0m to the projection ground. With an additional enlargement optic (Tele-optic) up to 14.0m can also be realised.
