Laser 2000 offers a very broad portfolio of lasers and broadband light sources for a wide range of applications, ranging from discrete laser diodes and VCSELs, to diode lasers and solid-state lasers, through to high-performance lasers, including short-pulse lasers, fiber lasers, and excimer lasers. Applications include laser material processing, measurement technology, spectroscopy, biomedical technology (including microscopy applications), and much more.
While laser beam sources have been established in the field of material processing for a long time, current developments are constantly opening up new opportunities for the use of high-performance lasers. Laser 2000 offers an innovative portfolio of lasers and components for laser material processing. In addition to femtosecond lasers, fiber lasers, and excimer lasers, we also offer high-power lasers with new wavelengths, for example, for laser cutting and laser welding. Scanners, process heads, and optomechanical components complete our comprehensive range.
With the steadily growing number of laser applications, laser safety has become an increasingly important issue. The use of class 3R and higher lasers requires some very extensive precautions to ensure safe working conditions for the laser. In order to meet these requirements, Laser 2000 offers a comprehensive portfolio of laser safety products, as well as the appropriate consulting in order to support safety at the laser workstation in the best possible way. The products are tested and certified according to the currently valid laser safety standards.
A variety of laser test equipments are required to investigate the different laser parameters and characteristics required for the successful use of a laser according to the given application. From measuring instruments for laboratories, to devices that serve as an integral part of a laser system, to flexible field measurement technology, different measuring devices are available based on the latest state of the art. Important devices include ones for power and energy measurement, beam profiling and M² measurement, divergence and angle measurement, wavelength and position measurement, and, in connection with this, the stabilization of all laser parameters.
Laser 2000 offers optics components such as mirrors, lenses, optical filters, polarizers, and prisms. These optical elements are essential for the construction of laser systems or optical measuring instruments. In addition, we offer a wide range of accessories for mechanical elements used in the field of optomechanics. Our products range from simple brackets, to fine lens and mirror holders, to various manual positioning elements. Actively or passively attenuated optical benches are available to serve as a basis for structures. These can be used to flexibly implement a wide range of applications, as well as to virtually fully equip entire laboratories.
Many laser applications require precise and fast positioning of workpieces or lasers. The large Laser 2000 portfolio of linear stages, rotary stages, goniometers, and vertical stages as well as multi-axis systems covers a wide range of solutions for many different applications. Our products handle travel distances up to several meters, accuracies up to the nanometer range, and speeds up to several meters per second, and can be optimized for various loads and applications. We offer scanning solutions using galvanometer scanners and polygonal scanners in various designs for fast deflection of the laser beam or visual inspection systems.
Machine Vision is an integral part of today’s automated, fast-moving industrial applications. It represents one of the most essential core competences in the production of goods. Typical fields of application for Machine Vision are 2D/3D measurement, parts and position recognition, and error detection. Laser 2000 focuses on applications with line lasers and DOE lasers (RPP), 3D stereo Machine Vision, and LEDs for line and bar lighting. We also develop special 3D camera systems for laser scanning applications.
Cameras are needed for Machine Vision, astronomy, microscopy, and many other imaging applications. Our extensive product portfolio of optical detectors and camera solutions includes silicon detectors, InGaAs cameras, vacuum detectors with low dark current, image intensifiers, and residual light cameras for single-photon detection. The products in our portfolio fulfill the most stringent requirements in terms of sensitivity and speed. For example, multispectral cameras that are based on prisms can be used to record different wavelength ranges, and line cameras can be used to inspect continuous material.
Our range of optical test equipment products includes devices for recording, displaying, and evaluating the properties of optical radiation as well as measuring devices in the field of fiber optic cable technology. Optical measurement methods are used in the fields of production, quality control, transport, biometric recording, and medicine, as well as for test solutions in the telecommunications environment and for fiber optic applications. To this end, we offer products such as spectrometers, systems for beam analysis and stabilization, attenuation and OTDR measuring devices for fiber optic cables, and polarization controllers and analyzers.
Our fiber optics product portfolio ranges from active components such as transceivers, transmitter diodes, and reception didoes to passive components such as splitters, WDMs, CWDMs, DWDMs, and optical switches. In addition, we also provide fibers and cables as well as pre-assembled patch cords/pigtails. Cable management systems such as splice boxes or 19-inch racks and corresponding plug-ins are important for maintaining an overview of network infrastructure. Special components are available for harsh environments that can withstand extreme requirements. Fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) also play an important role in fiber sensor technology.
Cleavers or polishing machines are required to process fiber end surfaces and fiber optic cable connectors. A splicer is required for the loss-free connection of two fibers. In general, a distinction is made between core centering and clad centering. Before the fibers are processed, it is particularly important to clean the end faces or ferrules of optical fibers and connectors. Cleaning cartridges or swabs are used for this.
Our network technology range includes components, systems, and solutions for optical transmission technology for telecom and industrial applications. We offer media converters and Ethernet/FTTX network terminators, CWDM/DWDM multiplexers, as well as Ethernet switches and optical cross-connects. Finally, we also provide differentiating technology through layer 1 encryption and intelligent cybersecurity functionality.
