New Trend Color in Industrial Image Processing
405 nm and 445 nm FLEXPOINT® Line Lasers
October 23rd, 2012
Wavelengths between 400 nm and 450 nm are becoming more and more popular
in machine vision applications. Blue line lasers provide a strong contrast, particularly
when measuring red objects. They are, therefore, primarily used to measure red-hot
steel. They are also used in the food processing industry (e.g., to classify salmon). The
shorter wavelengths produce a thinner line than their red counterparts and thus enable
All LASER COMPONENTS‘ FLEXPOINT® MV modules are, therefore, also available
with a violet 405 nm and a blue 445 nm beam, effective immediately. The output
power is in the range between 1 mW and 400 mW.
Beam profile. LASER COMPONENTS equips the laser with the required beam profile.
A homogeneous line, multi-lines, dot matrices, cross-hairs, or circle lasers nearly every
desired profile option is available.
MV series. The right module is available for each application! Of the machine vision
laser modules, there are six series available, each of which is designed for a very
Prototypes and customer-specific solutions. All FLEXPOINT® laser modules are designed
and manufactured in Germany. It is easy for customers to talk to the LASER
COMPONENTS‘ R&D engineers to develop the best laser module for their application.
