Harmonic Generators for Finer Details in Material Processing

Harmonic generators are perfect for industrial processing of even more demanding materials and finer details due to smaller spot size. Modules mounted directly at the output of the laser, provide a fully integrated feel, while modular structure allows excellent serviceability and lifetime. Light Conversion’s PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers, as well as FLINT oscillators, can be equipped with modules for high-efficiency harmonic generation. This includes industrial-grade … Continue reading
