(PresseBox) (Olching, )LASER COMPONENTS is expanding its market leadership with the new FLEXPOINT® MVmicroline laser series in the area of laser-based Machine Vision illumination.
The line lasers developed and manufactured in Germany produce, depending on the working distance, line widths down to 5 μm. Thus, these FLEXPOINT® modules are particularly well suited for the 3D measurement of very small objects.
They are available with different wavelengths, including 405 nm, 445 nm, and various wavelengths in the red range. The output power depends on the wavelength and ranges from 1 mW up to 150 mW. Typical fan angles are 5° and 10°.
To produce the best line quality and thinnest line width possible, the lasers are set to the desired working distance at the production facility. To trigger the laser with the camera, digital modulation may also be integrated.
Additional options include setting the power using a control wire. The lasers are 80 mm long; the diameter is 19 mm. They are operated at 4.5-30 VDC.
