FAST Laser (Flow Accelerated Screen Technology) from Hypertherm, Inc. is a new platelaser cutting technology from Hypertherm, a company that has been a leader in the advancement of plasma cutting technology for over 35 years. FAST Laser technology broadens the company's technology leadership position and product offering into the field of plate- laser cutting with a new line of laser cutting heads and controllers.
FAST Laser uses a patent-pending design to create a dual-flow zone that allows significantly higher oxygen assist-gas pressures in the tightly defined cut zone established by beam geometry. It eliminates the uncontrolled burning in the surrounding zone. FAST Laser's accelerated high-velocity oxygen flow along the beam path is designed to increase cut speed by fueling the exothermic reaction. It also reduces sensitivity to common plate fabricating conditions and variables, most notably plate chemistry and condition.
The company said that FAST Laser cutting heads deliver up to a 20 percent increase in cut speed over standard C 0 2 laser heads on plate steel.

For years, general manufacturing companies have enjoyed the benefit of laser cutting systems for producing complex or simple parts in batch volumes as low as one, and as high as tens of thousands. The laser is an incredibly powerful tool that remains unsurpassed in manufacturing activities across the
The U.S. Navy is examining lasers for detection, identification and destruction of targets in light of more stealthy and speedy threats, according to Aaron Budgor, former Navy program manager for the SDI Firepond laser radar program, who is doing long-range planning for the Naval Research Laboratory.
Centre in Fort William. The event was organized by DOF Subsea to showcase the capabilities of dynamic mobile mapping. The new technique uses a 3D laser scanner fitted to an ROV to create highly detailed, point cloud images of subsea assets and environments. By combining the 3D laser data with precise
Underwater Laser based micro-bathymetry is becoming a new standard for subsea pipeline and asset inspection. As the industry moves to deeper and more hostile environments for extraction of oil, technology to manage the risks involved in these environments are critical. This became most evident during the
In February 2017 DimEye released the diver version of its 3D subsea inspection system: VLS (video laser scan). The system is based upon a combination of advanced photogrammetry and laser triangulation techniques: photogrammetry provides characteristic points and features of the object to be measured as well
the number of wavelengths. Standard WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) utilizes either two, three or in some instances four wavelengths using standard lasers. CWDM technology can multiplex up to 18 individual wavelengths onto a single fiber. DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) can typically multiplex
FARO 3D laser scanning allows the Chief Engineer or Project Manager to work in detail with 3D model shots of machinery spaces with increased accuracy and reduced costs. The time to install a Ballast Water Treatment (BWT) System or maybe an Exhaust Gas Scrubber is rapidly approaching. Or, perhaps, you are
LIDAR-based 3D laser scanning allows designers and builders to view structural and machinery units already fit as a final product before construction and assembly are finished. Quick dimensional comparison can be made between drawings and constructed units, checks for accuracy and alignment can be
FARO Technologies released the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X 330. With a range almost three times greater than previous models, the Focus3D X 330 can scan objects up to 330m away and in direct sunlight. With its integrated GPS receiver, the laser scanner is able to correlate individual scans in post-processing
FARO Technologies, Inc. released the new FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D X 130, the newest member of Focus3D X Series range of laser scanners. With a scanning range of 130m, this laser scanner is suited for mid-range scanning applications. The portable Focus3D X 130 enables fast, straightforward and accurate
