3D Scanning Lasers

3D Scanning Lasers Overview

3D Scanning

Similar to laser radar, 3D laser scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of objects creating a point cloud of data from the surface of an object.  The primary differentiator between laser radar and 3D laser scanning is the distance from the target since in a 3D laser scanner the 3D scanning lasers are typically only a few inches from the object under investigation.   In other words, 3D laser scanning is a way to capture a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation.  Typical 3D scanning lasers are short-pulsed lasers because since the distance to the object is measured by looking at the roundtrip time-of-flight of each pulse, but frequency-modulated single-frequency fiber lasers can also be used for select applications.  On this page, you will find a list of all of the 3D scanning lasers we offer.

RPMC has years of experience supporting 3D Scanning applications, helping industry professionals select the right tool for the job.

Series

Aero

 

Aero Series is a high-energy DPSS laser that operates at less than 15 nanoseconds and with average power up to 200mJ at 1064nm and 100mJ at 532nm. All models come enclosed in an extremely compact and ruggedized single unit with a conductively cooled heatsink with a water-cooled option. It comes with available options for beam expanding and collimating optics. This new laser series is ideal for applications like LIBS, spectroscopy, and Atmospheric LIDAR.

 

CPFL

 

CPFL is a Telcom grade compact 1.5um pulsed laser series available with up to 1W of average power and nanosecond to sub-nanosecond pulses. This telecom grade, fiber laser enables a variety of applications including long-range LIDAR and other “eye-safe” laser operations. The CPFL Laser is a flexible format available at various pulse widths, repetition rates, and center wavelengths to meet a variety of application requirements.

 

HFL

 

HFL is a high-energy, q-switched, wavelength stabilized, OEM fiber laser from Bktel, perfect for LiDAR and 3D scanning applications. This ultra-compact series offers high pulse repetition rates up to several MHz, 5W average power output (25W peak), up to 150µJ of pulse energy, pulse widths between 0.4 and 10ns, and delivers a perfect TEM00 output beam with fiber and collimating lens options.

 

Quantas-Q-SPARK-PS-532: High energy, compact, nanosecond, DPSS laser

 

Q-SPARK, from Quantum Light Instruments Ltd., features a short <1.5 ns pulse with pulse energies up to 10 mJ. Due to the short cavity design, pulse durations of <800ps are achievable with pulse energies up to 5mJ. The innovative water-free laser crystal end-pumping technology produces a Gaussian-like, low divergence, high peak power laser beam in a compact, air-cooled package.

 

Q1

 

Q1 is a compact, energy-efficient, diode-pumped, air-cooled, Q-switched laser available at 1064 and 1053nm with up to 45 mJ of pulse energy and rep rates up to 50Hz. The high peak powers and low divergence of the Q1 series enable efficient harmonic conversion through the 5th harmonic (213 or 211nm). The innovative laser design has resulted in a user-friendly, turnkey system that requires little maintenance.

 

Vento

 

Vento is a sub-ns DPSS active Q-Switched laser, producing pulses in the hundreds of ps range with average power up to 50 W @ 532 nm and up to 100 W @ 1064 nm. Ideal for micromachining, fine cutting and precision LIDAR, all the models are enclosed in an extremely compact and ruggedized single unit with both air-cooled and water-cooled options available.

 

Wedge

 

Wedge is a DPSS Laser that has been designed for OEM applications like micromachining of hard and soft materials, specialty marking, glass and crystals engraving, LIDAR, LIBS, Spectroscopy, and medical diagnostics. High peak powers, with relatively low energy and heat generation, allows efficient ablation and non-linear interaction with most materials. The compact and lightweight package represents a great benefit in LIDAR and other aerospace applications, while short pulses give extremely precise time-of-flight measurements. Second Harmonic (532 nm output) and wavelength conversion option widen the product application range.
