New Compact Beam Shaper

LIMO is introducing a new Compact Beam Shaper (CBS): This process head has a compact design and uses integrated high-grade micro-optics to generate line-shaped or square laser beams. Each of these two beam geometries is available in various different sizes. The result: LIMO's latest beam shaping module provides a budget-friendly way to complement any basic equipment for laser application development, in both scientific and industrial fields.

The features of the CBS include:

  • slim-design aluminum housing (diameter of 32 mm, 120 mm long)
  • Inhomogeneity across entire area is < 15%
  • line-shaped beam geometry: line lengths of 2 mm – 110 mm (e.g. 46 mm x 1.6 mm)
  • square beam geometry: 2 mm – 110 mm (e.g. 8 mm x 8 mm)
  • with SMA905 connection

This process tool is compatible with all diode lasers up to 120 W with a wavelength of 808 – 990 nm and an available SMA connection. With the right beam geometry, the Compact Beam Shaper can be used in application-specific laser material processing, e.g. for:

  • selective heat treatment of various different materials (such as metal)
  • plastics welding
  • soldering
  • tempering
  • and much more!

  • Typical beam geometries:

    Line: 12.4 mm x 1.4 mm
    Square: 8 mm x 8 mm
