Laser Paint Removal
Laser paint removal is a process through which a paint layer is removed from a surface without damaging the substrate. It’s also known as laser coating removal and de-coating. The laser beam is pulsed onto the part with a precise energy density: it is higher than the paint ablation threshold but lower than the substrate ablation threshold. As the paint is vaporized, the surface is left intact.
The process can be applied to any metals, although the most typical applications are steel and aluminum. It can be used for most types of coatings, including powder coating, e-coating, and phosphate coating. Laser cleaning can also be used for other applications like mold cleaning, rust removal, and surface preparation.
Why Choose Laser Technology for Paint Removal?
Damaging metal surfaces while removing paint is costly. It can increase your scrap rate or diminish the life span of your structures. Unlike other paint removal methods, laser surface cleaning can be fine-tuned for paint removal—and only that.
High-Power Fiber Laser Systems
Laserax manufactures high-power fiber laser systems specifically designed to remove coatings from metal surfaces, most commonly steel and aluminum surfaces. Laser energy is released in short pulses and at a set repetition rate. The pulsed laser thus generates shockwaves that eject coatings from metal surfaces.
We offer up to 500 W of laser power for the most demanding industrial applications. The laser power you need for these systems depends on your available cycle time and on the thickness of your coatings.
