The process of laser coating removal involves using laser energy to eliminate a surface's coating without causing damage to the substrate material. This laser cleaning method suits various materials, such as metal, plastic, glass, and composites.
ASP - Evolving Coating Removal Technology
ASP's high-power fiber lasers are an effective solution for the new grades of press-hardened steel (PHS) developed in the automotive industry, where it is necessary to perform an aluminum-silicon coating removal process before assembly.
In industries like aerospace and shipbuilding, coating removal applications that use lasers are becoming more popular than chemical stripping due to their cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness. Since lasers do not require abrasive materials, they do not contribute to hazardous waste, making them an attractive alternative to conventional abrasive and chemical methods.
How IT WorkS
A lens focuses the laser beam onto the surface of the material to be ablated.
Energy from the laser pulse is absorbed into the material and quickly heats up, vaporizing or melting it away.
A stream of inert gas (usually nitrogen) is used to blow away any particles or debris created during the process.
The laser beam then moves to the next spot on the material, and the process repeats.
By controlling the size, shape, and focus of the laser beam, precise and localized ablation can be achieved.
Benefits of Coating Removal by Laser
Laser ablation can be very fast compared to conventional methods of removing coatings.
Lasers allow for precise control over the shape, size, and focus of the ablation process.
Laser coating removal does not require using solvents or other hazardous materials.
Unlike some removal methods, laser ablation does not require abrasive media or special tools, making it more cost-effective.
Lasers can remove various coatings from different surfaces and materials, making them an excellent choice for many industries where a range of materials and coatings are used.
Laser cleaning allows for more precise control over the removal process, making it ideal for complex or sensitive surfaces where exact control is required.
Laser coating removal does not create hazardous dust or dangerous fumes. Nor does it require personal protective equipment, making it a safer option than many other methods for dealing with hazardous coatings.
Laser ablation can remove coatings from curved, irregular, and flat surfaces.
