Abstract

This study presents a portable laser machining system that consists of a fiber-optic diode laser source with a wavelength of 808 nm, optic/opto-mechanical components, a laser scanning module, and a laser energy control module. The laser beam quality was measured at different operation frequencies during system evaluation. The experimental results of beam profile evaluation indicate that the enlarged collimated beam was the TEM00 mode with a roundness of approximately of 96%. The output laser power level increased as the pulse frequency increased during laser power evaluation. To control the rotating angle of the galvanometric scanning system, the deflective angle was adjusted using a 0. 192 voltage to obtain a deflective value of 1mm and the maximum scan field of 100 × 100mm2. The laser source operated at different frequencies, with pulse widths ranging from 530 to 48 μs. Finally, the proposed machine can also be used for black thick paper laser writing applications.
