Laser cleaning

Laser cleaning is a contactless process that involves using high repetition rates and short, high-energy pulses to remove rust, paint, various oxidants, dirt, undesirable deposits, and more, without damaging the materials.

The laser’s energy is absorbed by the contaminants or undesirables to be dislodged, thus removing them from the surface.

Although fiber laser cleaning systems have not completely replaced traditional methods, they offer several competitive advantages:

  • Unlike sandblasting or other abrasive methods, laser cleaning is non-abrasive, having the advantage of not damaging the cleaned surface.
  • It allows precise control of the laser energy, which can be adapted for cleaning sensitive surfaces and applications requiring high precision.
  • Laser cleaning is highly effective at removing stubborn contaminants, such as rust, paint, or grease, in a single operation.
  • While the initial investment is high, it is much more cost-effective in the long term than other methods due to its durability and its ability to reduce costs related to chemicals and labor needed for other cleaning methods.

Another important point to note: laser cleaning does not use chemicals, making it more environmentally friendly and safer for operators. Therefore, it is not surprising to see that it is becoming increasingly popular in various industries, such as manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, and even for the restoration of artworks and historical monuments!
