ZFSM - fibre-coupled laser, Z-LASER

Freiburg, Germany – Z-LASER, a leading manufacturer of laser modules and laser systems, presents fibre-coupled laser systems. Its newly developed “ZFSM” laser systems utilize the inherently superior optical properties of fibres. This new product is especially suitable for applications with highest requirements in projection accuracy that is demanded in industrial machine vision and medical application.
Optical properties of fibres are superior compared to bare laser diodes in terms of the beam profile (M² ~ 1.05) and the geometry of the dispersion. ZFSM yields small and perfectly round spots for point projection optics and thinner, more homogeneous lines with line generator optics. (e.g. 8μm at 30mm working distance, 1/e² and ± 5% line homogeneity).
ZFSM separates the optics by an optical fibre from the laser source with its electronics harness. The heat generated by electronics and laser source has no more direct influence on the optics (high projection stability). The optic can be located up to several meters away from the laser source. For applications with high ambient temperatures, for example the measurement of red-hot steel, the lifetime of the laser diode is significantly increased. By using standard fibre connectors the projection optics can be changed within a running system.
ZFSM is offered as pure OEM solution with bare electronics module, a fixed fibre and attached optics module or comes as a housed laser source with driver electronics and standard fibre connection. The customer can insert easily his own fibre application or use ZFSM fibre and optics accessories. Due to fibre coupling, the module can be scaled arbitrarily. For example, multiple laser sources (RGB) can be controlled individually and then be coupled in one or more fibres.

ZFSM – main features:
• Supports laser diodes with red, blue, green, IR up to ca. 50mW (in the projection)
• Fibre length on request, 500mm by default
• Spot/Line width: down to 15μm at 100mm working distance...

Since inception in 1985, Z-LASER is known as a manufacturer of industrial laser systems for manufacturing, machine vision, measurement and medical applications as well as appliance in analysis and science. The team has its own large development department that utilizes our expertise in optoelectronics and laser technology to come up with innovative solutions.
