CO2 Laser

Synrad offers a wide range of high performance CO2 lasers to fit an equally wide range of applications and material processing needs. Both output power and wavelength are critical factors in selecting the right laser for a specific application or material. Below is a table that defines Synrad lasers by Average Output Power and Wavelength to help narrow your search for the right laser.

● Abount Wavelength

All materials have a specific wavelength of laser energy that absorbs best and achieves the desired processing effect. Synrad Applications Engineers are constantly testing materials and processes to determine the optimal CO2 laser source for a specific application and material. Below is a basic guide to laser wavelengths and optimal material processing. For more assistance or to request specific materials testing Contact Us and we'll get right back to yo

Wavelength Description
10.6um This wavelength works well for most common marking, engraving, and cutting applications. The exceptions are noted below.
10.2um •Polypropylene based films for packaging (OPP, CPP, PP); when matched with the proper output
power can yield 2.5X - 4X speed increases in cutting and perforating
•Glossy paperboard packaging; yields sharp marking detail with consistent contrast
9.3um •PET bottles; yields frosted white marks for permanent date code and/or batch marking
•PET films (screen protectors and packaging); reduced melting and heat affect zone (HAZ) for high
speed cutting and perforating
•Polarizer films for LCD displays; when combined with high peak power reduces melting and HAZ for cutting and trimming applications
•Polymide (Kapton) films for electronics; when combined with high peak power reduces charring for
cutting, drilling and ablating applications
•FR4/FR2 (PCBs); when combined with high peak power reduces charring for cutting, drilling,
and ablating applications
•Some Polycarbonate plastics; improved processing when combined with high peak power to reduce
•Some Pebax plastic (medical tubing); better vaporization with less melting for cutting and ablating
•HDPE plastic; better vaporization with less melting for cutting and engraving applications
