The Swiss Knife Of Laser Cleaning
The JETLASER M100 sets new standards in laser cleaning, not only from a technology and capability point of view, but also ease of use and cost of ownership. Captioned the Swiss Knife of laser cleaning, this compact and highly efficient system, now available from TLM Laser, is finding its way into a wide range of applications.
Laser is fast becoming the process of choice for a growing number of cleaning applications. Laser cleaning is gentle on the substrate, both precise and quiet in operation, dust free and does not require any consumables or environmentally harmful chemicals. Typical applications include paint or rust removal, de-oiling, pre-treatment of substrates ahead of other processing operations and a wide range of other cleaning and restoration operations on multiple material substrates.
As the latest addition to TLM’s comprehensive laser processing portfolio, the JETLASER M100 system uses maintenance free Fiber Laser technology, is compact in design and can be transported in a car. Powered by a single 220 volt connection the system does not require other services such as compressed air, water or other cleaning media. Extraction however is required for removal of fume and any particulate, and as a class 4 system, operation needs to be carried out within a laser safe environment.
A range of cleaning patterns and easy selection of parameters such as low or high energy density to suit specific applications means that the system is easy and intuitive to use. The system uses an industrial PC and incorporates interfaces for integration with external automation and safety circuits.
According to TLM Laser’s Andy Toms: “This is a great addition to our laser technology range, as the JETLASER M100 provides a highly capable and flexible solution to multiple cleaning applications. Its ease of portability combined with operating costs which are sub £1.00 per hour mean that this is both a cost effective and efficient cleaning solution. ”
