Q-switched DPSS lasers

The HIPPO 1064 and Explorer 532-2 Q-switched diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) lasers offer improved cost-per-watt for photovoltaic manufacturing applications. They reportedly offer twice the average power for over 50% higher watts-per-dollar compared to previous versions.

The HIPPO 1064 and Explorer 532-2 Q-switched diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) lasers offer improved cost-per-watt for photovoltaic manufacturing applications. They reportedly offer twice the average power for over 50% higher watts-per-dollar compared to previous versions.

The DPSS lasers are built for 24/7 operation and high throughput. The HIPPO 1064-27 laser delivers over 27W of infrared average power at 100 kHz. The Explorer 532-2 delivers up to 2W of green average power.

Both lasers feature short pulse width to minimize heat-affected zones, reduce kerf height, and recast material. Pulse-to-pulse stability provides consistent scribe quality. The lasers also are designed for excellent beam quality for narrow scribe line widths and increased depth-of-focus. Fixed polarization targets simplified optical system design requirements.
