World First Backpack Laser
the launch of the first real fully mobile cleaning laser unit in the world. The
‘Backpack’ laser is a low cost, portable, battery powered solution for
gentle cleaning for restoration, conservation and industry,
manufactured by Clean Laser Systems in Herzogenrath (close to Aachen) , Germany.
ultra compact unit is the first real fully mobile cleaning laser unit in the
world. Available in mains versions or rechargeable battery powered, the laser
unit consists of an air cooled "state of the art" diode pumped laser
with an excellent laser beam quality and an ultra small focus.
in response to a growing demand for a low cost, portable cleaning laser, the
innovative laser cleaning system combines power and versatility, with the lowest
operating cost of all industrial cleaning methods. It offers a safe cleaning
method and is environmentally friendly, using no water or chemicals and
producing no effluent, as well as being small, light and fully portable.
‘Backpack’ laser is suitable for industrial cleaning and surface treatment,
renovation and paint removal applications, as well as removing contaminants,
production residue and coatings without damaging the substrate. The laser is
also ideal for restoration and conservation, including façade restoration, architectural
and sculpture conservation and monument and artefact cleaning.
costs are low compared to other cleaning methods with extremely low running
costs (circa € 0.3 Euro per hour).
great interest from leading companies and governments throughout the world, the
‘Backpack’ lasers are available in portable or stationary versions, and
special designs are also available.
Adams, the technical director of CIProcess, reports "The ‘Backpack’
laser is the most exciting development in cleaning lasers for many years. We
believe that we have made a great advance in laser cleaning technology, making
it more accessible due to the low price of the units and the portability.”
lasers direct a high precision programmable scanning beam onto the cleaning
surface, which reflects laser energy. Any contaminants on the surface absorb the
laser energy and are quickly vaporized, with any fumes or particulates removed
by an in-built filter. This gentle cleaning method avoids the erosion and
abrasion that normally occurs with most other cleaning methods.
new addition, the ‘Backpack’ lasers compliment the established range of
laser cleaning systems, which are used in conservation, restoration, automobile,
aerospace, pharmaceutical, bakery, food and electronics and many other fields.
