RAPID NX

The RAPID NX is a high energy picosecond laser system that offers <15 ps pulses at 1 MHz in a cost-effective package that is fit for the most demanding 24/7 industrial precision micromachining applications where the ablation quality and system cost are of the highest priority.

High Power Industrial ps-Laser

The RAPID NX is designed for industrial micromachining and offers ultrafast machining capability at an unprecedented price point. The RAPID NX offers all the features of the RAPID-series lasers at a lower power level and entry price. The system is designed for demanding specialty marking, engraving and LED dicing applications. The included intuitive software controls all laser functions via internal embedded processor. An optional DLL allows the user to control the laser via an external network.
