Our Laser Safety Experts
Our laser safety officers and technicians will be with you every step of the way. They will also provide you
with a document certifying the laser safety of your equipment, which will make us accountable.
Laser Safety Officers
Our engineering design team has LSO training. They perform a hazard analysis of your installation and
detail what you need to do to make your installations 100% laser safe. They provide standard operating
procedures and give online training to your personnel to ensure safety awareness.
Laser Safety Technicians
Our laser safety technicians visit your installations, report to our laser safety officers, and work
with you to apply the measures needed to make your equipment compliant. They also document the work
being done, which is required to certify your installations.
How Do We Make Lasers Safe?
Through engineering controls, we can bring a high-power, class-4 laser used for welding, cleaning, texturing,
or marking up to standard (class-1 laser product). When designing solutions, we use two basic approaches to
completely block the laser beam and its reflections: doors can be used to completely close the machine, or the
parts being processed by the laser can complete the enclosure.
Open-Air Laser Marking Machine
Open-air designs like this laser marking machine have no doors. Parts processed by the laser are used
to completely close the enclosure. This prevents the laser beam and its reflections from leaving the
Safety sensors ensure that everything is in place. Laser processing can only begin if the part is in
place to close the enclosure.
Door Laser Cleaning Machine
Machine designs with doors ensure that, when the doors are closed, the laser beam and its reflections
are completely enclosed. Safety sensors verify that the door is closed before the laser process
Battery Laser Cleaning Machine
Some machines can be designed with either approach. Our machine for cleaning batteries on conveyor
belts, for example, can be built with sliding doors or with openings on both sides that are completely
closed by the battery module. Sliding doors are ideal if operators need to load modules manually.
