What is Laser Cleaning?

Industrial laser cleaning is the process of clearing away undesired material from a solid surface by irradiating it with a laser beam. By absorbing the energy of the laser beam, the targeted material is heated very quickly, making it evaporate or sublimate. As the surface below does not absorb any energy, it stays untouched. By adjusting the pulse power, scanning speed and cleaning pattern, the amount of material that is being removed by a single laser pulse can be controlled with extreme precision.

Laser Cleaning is not only a rust removing tool, it is also used for laser paint removal, laser degreasing, laser removal of oxide layer, laser cleaning screw, laser derusting, laser weld-cleaning. Applied in shipbuilding industry, auto parts, rubber mold, high-end machine tools, tire mold, tracks, environmental protection industry and other industries.
