Laser Ablation with Virtually No Heat Input

In laser technology, the shorter the pulse, the lower the heat input into the surrounding material. A picosecond laser breaks down an important barrier. It practically eliminates heat transfer; the targeted material evaporates immediately.

Proven Housing

The new ProtoLaser R is packaged in the familiar thirdgeneration ProtoLaser system housing. It is structurally decoupled from the effects of the environment and can be rolled through any lab door.

Micro-Material Processing Specialist

Unlike pure cutting applications, micro material processing does not require high powers. Instead, stable laser parameters in the lower output range are crucial. The LPKF ProtoLaser R features a laser source with a laser power of up to 4 W. This allows even complex thin film systems, temperature-sensitive substrates, and OLED coatings on glass to be ablated or structured with a high degree of control. The laser system requires no masks or films to accomplish these tasks.

Established System Software

The LPKF ProtoLaser R comes with tried and true system software. Support of all common CAD formats is enabled through the combination of LPKF CircuitPro and LPKF CircuitMaster.

  • Picosecond laser for the research lab
  • Cold ablation of different thin-film-layers
  • Intuitive CAM software
  • Field-proven housing concept
