                  The highly innovative, revolutionary ULTRA-HIGH-SPEED SCANNER (UHSS) opens up new application areas for ultra-short pulse lasers at unprecedentedly high speeds. RAYLASE has achieved these high deflection speeds for the UHSS by combining an extremely precise polygon with two high-stability galvanometer scanners. One scanner takes care of corrections for the fast axis of the polygon and the other scanner provides the line off-set as well as corrections for the second axis. The polygon scanner provides extraordinarily high speed along its scan path. The RAYLASE UHSS is the only system that enables companies to scan their usual work areas ultra-fast and very precisely, reducing production time and costs significantly.

                  FEATURES

                • Immediate quality inspection during and after the process

                RAYLASE Machine Vision Control (MVC) enhances laser processes by the valuable possibilities of modern Machine Vision Control. A well-adjusted system of industrial cameras, lenses, optical adapters, illuminations and intelligent image processing software simplify the development of industrial laser processes, reduces system costs and allow for the advanced control, monitoring and in-line quality inspection. The Machine Vision Control solution is capable to automatically recognize the position and rotation of a workpiece by recurring patterns or fiducials. In the design phase, these reference points can be taught to the system fast and intuitively. RAYLASE MVC adapts the parameters of the laser process to the actual workpiece position even when it is continuously advancing on a conveyor belt. Right after the process, the same system verifies the success of the laser process.

                  • ON-AXIS CAMERA APPLICATION

                  • YOUR BENEFITS
                    High-precision laser process monitoring thanks to inherent drift compensation

                    Thanks to a special dichroic element inside the deflection unit, the camera can be coupled into the optical path of the laser beam. This setup allows for the precise localization of the workpiece and the adjustment of the laser process, even at very short working distances. This renders high efforts in mechanical fixtures for the accurate positioning of parts redundant. Since laser beam and camera share the same optical path, this setup inherently compensates for the drift in the laser beam deflection and ensures especially high accuracy in the localization of workpieces as well as in the quality inspection of the process results.
                    • All working distances, also at fΘ < 163 mm
                    • High-precision (< 10 µm)
                    • Inherent drift compensation
                    • Recognizes fiducials in the laser field and within a narrow frame strip
                    • Laser beam power up to 6 kW
                    • Different refraction indices for different wavelengths of the laser and the visual light are compensated in X-Y plane
                  • OFF-AXIS CAMERA APPLICATION

                  • Large area laser process monitoring and MOTF processing

                    While On-Axis process monitoring offers many benefits, for some application scenarios the classic Off-Axis integration of industrial cameras is still appropriate. When parts shall be processed during constant conveyance, e.g. on a belt, Off-Axis cameras allow the early localization of the part and its speed in order to start and adapt the laser process accordingly. This scenario is also referred to as Marking-and-processing-On-The-Fly (MOTF).
                    Furthermore, at large processing fields, where precision requirements are less critical, this approach to utilize modern Machine Vision technology is the right choice for the optimization of laser processes and assurance of high product quality.

                    • With a laser narrow kerfs can be achieved and thus parts are precision cut. Laser cutting is ideal for metallic materials as well as for plastics, textiles, glass and ceramics.
                      A special form of laser cutting is the laser scribing, as it is for example used in the packaging industry for “easy opening”. RAYLASE solutions offer short focus diameters to obtain ideal results in laser cutting.

                      RAYLASE solutions for laser cutting give you almost unlimited cutting paths. Particularly noteworthy are the RAYLASE solutions to make three-dimensional cuts, for example, in the processing of glass.

                      • PACKAGING INDUSTRY

                      • High demands are made from trading on the packaging industry. Packaging should present the product appealingly, ensure high-quality storage and be easy to open.
                        In addition, the packaging must take over tasks in the distribution chain from producer to consumer. This can be for example the protection during transportation and storage, the maturity control and ensuring easy preparation and processing for consumption.
                        The process with the laser allows the weakening of targeted individual layers of packaging, for example, as perforation. Likewise, by means of laser technology, tiny perforations, which helps to create a defined atmosphere within the package is introduced. In all these applications in the packaging industry solutions from RAYLASE help.

                        The processing of packaging films is usually on large rolls at very high speeds of several hundred meters per minute. These requirements are a perfect match for RAYLASE Marking-and-processing-On-The-Fly solutions.
