Mobile Excimer Laser Enables Robotic CFRP Cleaning

See how the high repetition rate (1000 Hz) and pulse energy (10 mJ) of the ExciStar allows rapid processing and continuous movement of the laser beam over the part surface.

Compact excimer laser systems open up new possibilities for the treatment of 3D-CRFP-parts, also by robotic applications.
