Laser technology

No idea what you can do with a laser? We do. As the largest independent laser lab in Europe, we have a unique combination of knowledge, experience and equipment when it comes to lasers.

When people think of laser technology, there are three terms that come up very often: expensive, dangerous and complex. However, that does not have to be the case. With the right equipment and expertise, laser technology is absolutely safe, cost-effective and offers a very wide spectrum of possibilities.

Very often, laser is even a very interesting – but unknown – solution for specific engineering challenges. We are happy to show you a number of options.


What can you do with laser technology?

With laser technology you can change the surfaces of materials: roughen or smoothen, create thermal barriers, change absorption, etc.

Absolem - Icon - Verwijderen


With laser technology you can remove materials in all kinds of ways and down to a microscopic level: drilling, milling, cutting, selective removal of layers, cleaning, etc.

Laser technology allows you to modify the structure of materials in various ways: shaping, hardening, recrystallising, oxidising, splitting, etc.

Can laser offer a solution for your challenge?

We would be happy to take a look at your concrete business case. Over a cup of coffee or another drink. Without it having to become an awkward sales conversation.

The advantages of laser technology

Laser technology has a number of important advantages over classical solutions. For example, a laser is always contactless: there is no contact between the product and the tool. In other words: you should not take into account the wear of tools or materials.

In addition, a laser makes it possible to work in an extremely controlled and very accurate manner – think of micrometers. A laser can also be used to perform certain actions in places that are difficult to reach with conventional tools.

Other advantages: a laser can work very quickly and laser technology is widely applicable. Laser technology offers an answer to many challenges. And not unimportant: lasers are cool of course.

A training in laser technology? No problem!

We are happy to share our expertise in laser technology. That is why we have developed a specific multi-day training course. Completely customized and with a mix of theory and practice.

How do you choose the right laser?

The wavelength has an influence on the interaction with the material. A difference in wavelength causes a different reaction or effect. Thanks to our different laser sources, we can handle all kinds of wavelengths: ultraviolet, green, NIR 940-1060 and IR/CO2 10600.

Pulse duration

Pulse duration has an impact on the precision and also determines the interaction with the material. Our laser technology allows both continuous beams and pulse duration. It can vary from a millisecond (one thousandth of a second) to a picosecond (one trillionth of a second).

Spot size

The spot size allows to determine the intensity of the laser. The more bundled, the more energy. With our laser sources we can vary in spot size from a few millimeters to a micrometer (one thousandth of a millimeter).

What lasers does Absolem have to offer?

In our laser lab we have more than 20 laser sources. This makes us the largest independent laser lab in Europe. So we have an extremely broad spectrum of lasers that we can use.
