New diode pumped, picosecond laser
The POLARIS™ i200 is a high power and high energy plused laser developed to respond to the increasing demand from the manufacturing industry for high power, high energy picosecond lasers. It features 1064nm, 10ps, 200W, low M2, high repetition rate.

The POLARIS™ i200 is based on a versatile Nd:YAG “Z-slab” module design. The state of the art universal control based power supply allows Programmable Burst Mode (PBM) for optimised and cost effective material processing – applications where high energy lasers give vital advantages in current leading market and technology production lines.

The manufacturer, Powerlase Photonics Ltd., has demonstrated over the years their expertise in providing high power DPSS lasers in IR, green and UV for the industry. The solid state lasers product family offers scalable power versions to meet the most demanding requirements.

Stripping of plastic insulation with excimer and TEA CO2 lasers
AMS Technologies can supply lasers suited for stripping of plastic insulation of wires and other items, like hydraulic tubing for brakes. Excimer and TEA CO2 lasers enable clean, non-contact stripping of a wide variety of wire and insulation types. They are standard industrial tools wherever mechanically fragile wires are used.

The Impact™ TEA CO2 lasers have proven to be a uniquely valuable tool for wire-stripping and other fine processing applications in medical device manufacturing, often offering an extremely cost-effective alternative to excimer lasers.

SHG ion laser technology offers cost effective, high power, continuous wave deep UV radiation at various wavelengths
AMS Technologies represents one of the few suppliers of frequency doubled ion lasers, Cambridge Lasers Laboratories. The standard Lexel™ ion lasers offer high continuous wave (CW) output levels (up to 200 mW at 257 nm) in a cost effective way. This is done through intra cavity Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) of the fundamental wavelengths of an argon ion laser, in a folded 3-mirror design. This design maintains a high quality TEMoo beam also in the deep UV range.

Multiple wavelengths (up to 20 lines), in the visible, UV as well as the deep-UV, between 568.2 nm and 229 nm can be reached, depending on the choice of model/configuration. Switching between SHG operation and the fundamental (vis.) is easy and straight forward.

Established applications for these lasers are writing of Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG), Raman spectroscopy, protein science, lithography and several other applications in semiconductor manufacturing.

Thermoelectric recirculating chillers
Thermoelectric recirculating chillers are available offering 160W to 950W of cooling capacity with precise temperature control of better than +/-0.05°C. These chillers feature whisper-quiet operation, vibration-free operation, world wide power compatibility and a high efficiency variable voltage source that consumes energy only when needed.

For applications that require higher cooling capacities we offer a range of compressor-based recirculating chillers with cooling capacities between 300 W and 95 kW.
