LXQ-UHP Series – Ultra High Power Fiber Laser Cleaning System
The LXQ-UHP is an ultra-high-power multimode pulsed fiber laser system designed for the most challenging industrial cleaning applications. With a larger spot size than single-mode lasers and up to 3kW of laser power, it is the ideal laser cleaning system to process large surfaces within short cycle times.
Benefits of the LXQ-UHP Fiber Laser System
3kW of Pure Laser Cleaning Speed
Combining the most powerful pulsed laser power on the market, the world’s fastest scanning speed, and a large spot size, the LXQ-UHP excels at laser cleaning. Its unrivaled cleaning speed makes it perfect for demanding inline applications.
Large Tolerance for Complex Applications
As a multimode laser, the LXQ-UHP can clean large parts and complex shapes. Its large depth of focus and spot size allows the automated cleaning of rough parts with various shapes, and this, without needing tight positioning precision.
Optics for Your Specifics
Our experts select the optical components for your application. Benefiting from more than 200 possible configurations, they will propose the one that maximizes cycle time according to your process requirements and contaminants to remove.
With up to 100m of fiber cable and a long cleaning distance, the LXQ-UHP can be mounted on a robot to clean larges parts with maximum flexibility. The laser head can also be positioned in any orientation to clean any surfaces.
Easy to Integrate
The LXQ-UHP comes preconfigured, pre-calibrated and pre-tested with a configuration optimized for each application. It also includes plug & play functions (such as a web-based HMI and standard peripherals), quick start programs for common PLCs (Allen-Bradley and Siemens) and many more features that speed up and simplify integration. It is also controlled using standard protocols (PROFINET and Ethernet/IP).
Class-1 Laser Certification Service
Our laser safety experts can help you simplify integration and prevent safety issues. You can work with them to design custom enclosures for your solutions. If you prefer a complete solution designed by our experts, you can also integrate our standard and certified Class-1 enclosures.
Real-Time Remote Support
If you encounter problems during an integration, having access to laser experts can save you time and help you keep your customers satisfied. Laserax experts are available on site and through remote support whenever you need them, whether it’s for remote installation support, training or after-sales support.
Laser System Options
The LXQ-UHP offers between 500W and 3kW of laser power for the most demanding cleaning applications.
Depth of Focus
The LXQ-UHP sets a high standard with a depth of focus of up to 20 mm. You get the freedom to process any types of geometries, compensate for bended parts, and prevent complex laser head adjustments.
Fiber Cable Length
Offering between 10m and 100m of fiber cable length, our laser heads can process large areas as needed. They can easily be mounted on robots, gantry systems, and the like.
The standard optical configuration is optimal for most cleaning applications. Not only does it offer a huge working field, but the lens is at a good distance from the part to prevent the dust generated by the laser cleaning from accumulating on the lens.
Advanced optical configurations are used for applications with atypical requirements. Some coatings, for example, need to be cleaned with a higher energy density than usual. Optical elements can be combined in a way that maximizes energy delivery for this specific process.
The air-knife is installed on the lens, blowing a continuous airstream that protects it against dust accumulation. The lens needs to be cleaned less often and you obtain results that are much more consistent.
Our optional Class-1 enclosures offer you a quick way to guarantee laser safety.
The HMI control panel provides direct access to laser marking parameters. You can:
- Manually adjust the laser marking zone
- Enter the manual operation mode to run tests or calibrate the laser
- Display information such as the system status, the operation mode and the alarm history
