Jenoptik will be showcasing new, reliable technological solutions at this year’s LASER World of PHOTONICS, in the form of its optical precision systems and micro-optics, laser and machinery solutions for efficient laser material processing, and effective technologies for diagnostics and therapy. With these solutions, Jenoptik is supporting trendsetting developments in the automotive, medical technology, industrial, and consumer electronics sectors.
Better quality of life with solutions for ophthalmology and aesthetics
Thanks to their exceptional electro-optical properties, Jenoptik’s beam sources are an especially attractive option for the healthcare and medical technology market: with its system and technology components for ophthalmology, Jenoptik is supporting the early detection of eye diseases as well as effective treatment using laser-based therapies. Corrective and gentle laser treatment of the eye can be performed using the green diode-pumped Jenoptik thin-disk laser JenLas D2.mini, which is perfect for treating the retina (retinal photocoagulation) thanks to its efficiency, precision, and reliability.
Efficient semiconductor material made by Jenoptik for industrial and medical applications
Jenoptik will be showcasing its highly efficient laser bars which have been proven their worth in medical and industrial applications over the course of many years. The epi design of this semiconductor material is always optimised in terms of its efficiency and radiation characteristics. Narrow far-field angles and attractive pricing help Jenoptik’s customers to make their individual solutions a reality.
New generation of e² pulse compression gratings from Jenoptik
Two years after the e² pulse compression gratings were first launched, this product is still setting standards in the femtosecond laser market thanks to a continued program of refinement (e² stands for efficiency enhanced). Jenoptik’s e² PCGs (pulse compression gratings) are encapsulated quartz glass transmission gratings with a diffraction efficiency of almost 100 percent.
Complex 3D processing of bumpers with exceptional machine solution
Improved flexibility is becoming increasingly important in production and in efforts to refine lightweight construction through material savings. Jenoptik has developed innovative machine concepts for the automotive market, in particular for plastic bumper processing. The special feature here is the combination of two technologies that Jenoptik has already successfully introduced to the market: 3D laser cutting and 3D laser welding. By linking a laser cutting and laser welding system, Jenoptik can offer a highly flexible solution for processing bumpers in a wide variety of designs, and for other complex interior and exterior components.
New gentle process for airbag perforation in sensitive materials
In future, it will also be possible to process airbag solutions in the instrument panels of luxury vehicles using high performance JENOPTIK-VOTAN A technology. For the very first time, lasers can now be used to make invisible airbag breaking points in genuine leather without hardening or shrinking this sensitive material at the processing area.
