This family of rugged and compact OEM femtosecond lasers uses state-of-the-art mode-locking technology to deliver ultra-short femtosecond pulses with outstanding long-term stability, superior pulse-to-pulse stability, low noise, and excellent TEMoo mode quality.

Developed for demanding medical & industrial applications

Designed for the stringent reliability requirements of medical and industrial markets, the aeroPULSE FS10 is qualified for rigorous safety, mechanical & environmental standards. Furthermore, the aeroPULSE FS10 production follows the ISO 13485 standards.

Maintenance-free and OEM-ready

With no alignment required, the aeroPULSE FS10 guarantees high stability with 24/7 operation and is ideal for OEM integration.

The system configuration consists of a low-noise, air-cooled control unit and a very low-profile laser head that can be mounted either horizontally or vertically.

The compact and air-cooled laser head ensures easy integration in any OEM application allowing the controller to be placed away from the processing area for easy service access and optimum use of system real-estate.

Using the NKT Photonics ubiquitous CONTROL graphical user interface, the aeroPULSE FS10 is easy to operate through the intuitive graphical user interface. Furthermore, the platform allows laser condition monitoring by virtue of in-built surveillance sensors ensuring optimum and safe laser operation.
