Laser cleaning is very demanding in technological terms and requires a circumspect way of working. In operation, the laser is virtually silent and can be integrated directly into the production process whilst taking account of the relevant safety precautions. The laser does not have a scattering effect and can therefore be used in a targeted manner for the processing of complex surfaces.
The stripping rates are lower compared to dry ice, but in this case the removal of individual thin layers of between 0.001 mm and 1 mm is possible.
In addition to the stripping rate that can be finely adjusted, the area to be machined can also be precisely defined. For these reasons the laser procedure is particularly well suited to the cleaning and decoating of sensitive surfaces.
