As part of its drive to open up new areas of business, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) will be using the trade show LASER World of Photonics 2011 in Munich from May 23 to 26, 2011, to present laser technology it has developed in-house. The laser systems on display emit up to 64 laser beams from a compact module. The modules are fed with data via a fast serial bus and have internal voltage stabilization. They can be integrated easily into a diverse range of applications thanks to the defined mechanical interface and straightforward cooling. An evaluation kit is also available - in this instance, an independently functioning test version complete with software interface for integration into third-party applications.
The modules are ideal for all industrial applications requiring an individually controllable, scalable laser system - for example, for applying lettering to surfaces or for multi-channel data storage.
Heidelberg has been using the exhibited laser modules worldwide in its plate imaging units since 2004. The company has so far installed more than 8,000 modules in print shops around the globe.
"Heidelberg offers extensive know-how in automation technology and the development of laser technology. Our customers value the reliability and productivity of this laser unit, which we have developed in-house. As the technology is suitable for use in a diverse range of industrial applications, Heidelberg is looking to make it accessible to a wider circle of potential customers at LASER in Munich," says Dr. Bernard Beier, Head of Predevelopment at Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG.
Trade show visitors will find Heidelberg at LASER World of Photonics 2011 in Munich in Hall B1, Stand 462 from May 23 to 26, 2011. The booth is a joint presentation of various companies under the umbrella of OptecNet Deutschland.
