RAYLASE is an international pioneer in developing and marketing modular components and submodules for laser beam deflection, modulation and control including state of the art software and electronics. We supply our products to a worldwide market and support our customers with a combination of professional consulting, customized solutions and add-on services. The product range includes scan heads for CO2-, HeNe-, Nd:YAG-, frequency-doubled and frequency-tripled Nd:YAG- as well as diode or Argon-lasers.
Our products deflect laser beams from a few milliwatts up to several kilowatts, starting from single-axis scanning units to dual-axis scan heads up to 3-axis subsystems. Typical applications are marking, scribing, engraving, cutting, drilling, perforating, soldering, welding, tempering and rapid tooling. This enables innovative production technologies in the printing, packaging, electronic, textile, medical or automotive industry.
RAYLASE GmbH was established in 1999. Since then RAYLASE has been developing scanning units based on galvanometerscanners, interface cards to control precisely the scanning unit and the laser, a general-purpose and user- friendly software package and optical components for fast beam delivery. In a recent project a hybrid scan head for scanning speeds up to 200 m/s has been developed, which is based on one polygon- and two galvanometer-scanners. This scan head is the basis for further developments to enable ultra-high speed structuring applications with ultra-short pulsed lasers.
Out of its worldwide 90 employees, more than 20 employees are working in research and development. This team is responsible for tasks like mechanical and optical engineering and simulation, electronic and board design, VHDL programming, control engineering and simulation, embedded programming and programming of a Windows application program. All employees have master degree or an even higher level of education. This underlines the focus of RAYLASE into research and development.
