SURFACE LASER CLEANING
RUST REMOVAL / DEOXIDIZING
Industrial laser cleaning systems are most known for their rust removal capabilities. Application can be found in multiple industries as for example process & production or the heavy industry.
Our laser systems can be used to derust or deoxidize small machinery or materials which leave the warehouse rusted after being left there for several weeks or months. See some samples of rust removal here.
Some of the main advantages of using laser cleaning as a rust removal method are the lack of chemicals that have to be used, the substrate is not damaged, very little pollution, etc.
The laser technique is a non-contact/non-abrasive process, no use of chemicals or blasting media are necessary , we see a reduction in waste, automation is easy and it’s very safe.
It can be initiated at the end of a process line as a final cleaning solution to remove any dirt, moist or other contaminants. In the end, you’re left with a clean product, ready to be sold to the customer.
Another application is the preparation of a product for a subsequent process: glueing, welding, coating, etc.
You need a clean area to apply glue or insert a spot weld? A laser cleaner might be a very good solution for your problem!
- Low Power systems are excellent for spot repair
Compared to the more traditional techniques, laser cleaning has many additional advantages. The diameter of the laser beam can be regulated so that areas of different dimensions can be treated. There is no physical contact between the object to be cleaned and the laser equipment. This aspect can be really relevant in treating fragile materials.
