FiberScan™ HR

Laser Mechanisms’ FiberScan™ HR is a scanning head for high-power laser sources including Fiber, Disk, CO2 and Diode lasers. Available for collimated beams up to 48 mm diameter, FiberScan™ HR can deliver 20+ kW of laser power to any point within the system’s field of view. FiberScan™ HR employs direct water-cooled copper optics for all wavelengths throughout its optical path to provide reliable, ultra high-power capability with minimum thermal focus shift. The rugged design is optimized for high power and long processing times required in applications such as continuous welding on roll forming systems, additive manufacturing of sizeable structures and large area or volume cladding. In addition, high-speed operation up to 500 Hz in a smaller field enables wide gap seam welding and laser stir “wobble” welding of materials that are difficult to process.


Features
  • Built for high laser power (20+ kW)
  • Modular design can be configured for specific applications
  • Water-cooled reflective optics including collimator
  • Compact optic drive system

Applications

Laser Stir “Wobble” Welding – Programmable 2D scan modes to widen process window and enhance weld quality for:

  • Materials prone to defects (cracks, pores) such as copper and aluminum alloys
  • Dissimilar material joining

Thick Section Welding – Beam oscillation to improve gap bridging and widen weld width in single path; e.g. sandwich panels

Remote Welding – On-the-fly spot and special fusion path shape welding

Large Area Cladding – Variable track width and optimized heat input

Additive Manufacturing – Large scale 3D printing

Surface Cleaning – Paint, rust removal and surface layer removal
