  • The Laser Guidebook
    The Laser Guidebook. Designed for ease of use and to explain the operation and characteristics of different types of lasers, this book is written to help end-users quickly and easily choose the laser best suited to their needs.
  • Laser Trackers
    Many industries, including the automotive and aerospace industries, must precisely measure the three-dimensional features of large objects. An increasingly popular way to do this is with the laser tracker, a device first introduced in the late 1980s. As its name suggests, the laser tracker measures
  • Laser Diffraction
    The technique of laser diffraction relies on the fact that particles passing through a laser beam scatter light at an angle that is inversely proportional to their size (small particles scatter light at high angles whereas large particles scatter light at low angles). It is therefore possible
  • Case Study: Fiber Laser vs CO2 Laser
    Laser marking on stainless steel with a CO2 laser is very timely and messy process. Due to the reflective nature of the metal surface and the operational wavelength, CO2 laser systems require a laser marking material (LMM,) to permanently mark the surface. The LMM is sprayed onto the surface
  • Laser Mirror Capabilities
    Explains general and custom capabilities of laser mirrors.
  • Laser ENgraving and Cutting on Plastics
    Laser machines from Trotec are used for laser cutting and marking of a wide variety of plastics. Whether you wish to laser cut plastic material or laser engrave polyethylene and silicone - we offer you the optimum laser system for your application.
  • Fundamentals of Laser Dynamics
    Fundamentals of Laser Dynamics. Placing special emphasis on the problems of low-frequency dynamics of multimode lasers, this text explores the current state of laser dynamics and provides reference data and basic experimental facts for old and new generation lasers.
  • Laser Line Scanning (.pdf)
    Laser line scanning is ideal for non-contact measurement applications - including inspection, cloudto- CAD comparison, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, and 3D modeling. Laser line probes use a triangulation process to find the position of objects in space. A high performance laser diode
  • Laser Engraving Equipment Exhaust
    Proper exhaustion of your laser engraving equipment is paramount in running a safe work area. It's not only beneficial to your work environment, but proper exhaustion will also add to the life of your laser engraving system.
  • Laser Marking Guide (.pdf)
    When the laser medium is a solid crystal, the laser is known as a solid state laser. One of the differences between welding and marking solid state lasers, is the use of a Q-switch in marking lasers. This is a high speed switching element with in the resonator that can produce laser pulses down
  • Applications in Laser Welding (.pdf)
    To increase throughput and reliability of automotive parts, a machine-vision system controls on-line laser function with high-speed CMOS cameras.
  • Laser Diode Principles (.pdf)
    A number of questions and misconceptions surround the laser diode. Are all laser diode specifications identical? Do single-mode diodes always operate as single-mode? What effect does temperature change have on wavelength and optical power? The following explores these and other common diode
  • Advanced Techniques for Laser
    Running a laser is expensive. Any movement made by the machine that doesn't involve cutting material is a wasted movement, causing wear and tear on the machine and costing time. Let's explore four advanced techniques to improve your laser cutting machine throughput.
  • Laser Triangulation Sensors
    Offering extreme resolution and high measuring rates, laser triangulation sensors accurately measure displacement, position and vibrations on an engine manifold, powertrain or car body.
  • Part Replication with Laser Scanning
    3D laser scanning offers a fast and accurate way to create a complete digital 3D model of even the most complex part to aid in modeling and replication.
  • High-Resolution Laser Micromachining
    St. Louis, MO - Gateway Laser Services utilizes a high-resolution laser micromachining process to micromachine "very small parts" with feature sizes down to 0.001 inch and tolerances to ± 0.0002 inch. Such high levels of precision are a key advantage of the laser process, which Gateway uses
