Product Release – 100, 150 and 200 Watt, 9.3μm CO2 Laser

A CO2 laser is capable of outputting wavelengths ranging from 9-11 um with the traditional 10.6 um wavelength being the most common and dominant. The 10.6 um wavelength has been the basis of all our CO2 laser models since 2013. Recently, we have added the 9.3 um wavelength to our KT200 series which includes rated power levels of 100, 150 and 200 watts. The KT200 series is an exceptionally well-established product line that has shown its superior robustness and lifetime over the years.

The addition of the 9.3 um wavelength allows for higher performance in new applications and materials which will appeal to a new range of potential customers. Some of these prospects can be found in the plastic processing, converting and printed circuit board (PCB) industries.

The 9.3 um wavelength allows for better performance in numerous materials including the following:

  • Polycarbonate
  • Pebax Plastic
  • PCB Material
  • Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
  • Polarizer Films
  • Polyimide Films also known as Kapton
  • Optical Films

Some common uses for 9.3 um CO2 lasers include PCB drilling and depaneling, kiss-cutting labels, scoring and perforating flexible packaging, marking on PET plastics and various galvo and gantry applications.

The current 9.3 um lasers offered range from 100 to 200 watts and the laser characteristics can be seen on the spec sheet at the link below. Higher powered 9.3 um lasers are in development along with other wavelengths including 10.2 um. Contact [email protected] for inquiries.
