FlashLite CW Laser Modules

Compact Laser Processing Module

This compact and economical version of the Preco high-speed “directed beam” technology provides laser processing for numerous applications. Preco’s FlashLite™ G series laser module is all you need if you already have material handling in place. This compact processing module is a cost-effective, complete laser package that can be added to virtually any web or sheet handling line. Laser processing is typically on the fly or in a step and repeat manner. Laser triggering is based on distance, eye mark triggering or vision registration.
