Introduction of SHARK P CL


Laser cleaning machines provide a modern, high-tech solution for cleaning, removing coatings, cleaning contamination, and surface conditioning across various industries. Unlike traditional abrasive methods like sandblasting, laser cleaning is a non-contact process that uses highly focused laser light to remove materials with extreme precision and virtually no damage to the underlying surface.

The physics behind laser cleaning rely on the energy of the photons in the laser beam to break the bonds holding contaminants on the surface. When the pulsed laser beam hits the material, it instantly vaporizes a tiny layer, exploding the contaminant particles away in a controlled manner.

Laser cleaning machines can be tuned and optimised to clean surfaces as delicate as works of art or historical artifacts. Their pinpoint accuracy and depth control also make laser cleaning ideal for electronics, aerospace, automotive, nuclear decommissioning, and other applications requiring nanometer-scale precision.

As laser cleaning technology continues advancing, these machines are becoming more automated, compact and cost-effective. New developments like air-cooled lasers are improving reliability and energy efficiency. With these innovations, laser cleaning systems are gaining popularity as a versatile cleaning method able to handle the toughest industrial jobs while ensuring quality, safety, and minimal substrate damage.

What is the Shark P CL Laser Cleaning Machine?


The Shark P CL is an industrial laser cleaning machine by PULSAR LASER, a Development Center  based in Slovakia that specializes in laser technology. The Shark P CL model utilizes a high-powered laser beam to remove contaminants and coatings from plastic, wood, metal, stone, concrete, and other surfaces.

Some key features of the Shark P CL include:

- Powerful 100W or 300W laser with 1064nm wavelength, with 500ns Pulse length. MOPA Laser source.
- Air cooling system
- The unique and perfectly matched ergonomic cleaning head on the market. You feel virtually no hand strain when working.
  • The total weight  is only 900 g.
- Safety sensors and emergency stop buttons
- Touch screen control panel
- Adjustable laser beam modulation, laser power and speed settings
- Works on rust, paint, grease, biological residues, and more
- Can be used for cleaning, stripping, de-coating, surface preparation, and other industrial processes

The Shark P CL comes in a compact, rugged housing designed for industrial conditions. It offers an efficient and safe method to clean and prepare surfaces without chemicals, noise, vibration, or masking. The combination of high laser power and air cooling allows the Shark P CL to operate continuously in demanding applications.

Benefits of Air Cooling


The Shark P CL laser cleaning machine uses an air cooling system, which provides several advantages compared to water cooling.

- Air cooling is more convenient and requires less maintenance than water cooling. There is no need to regularly check and replace water, deal with leaks or spills, or maintain a separate chiller system.

- Air cooled lasers can operate in any orientation, while water cooled lasers require an upright installation to function properly. This makes air cooling more versatile for industrial applications.

- Air cooling is safer, as there is no risk of electric shock from contact with water and coolant leaks. This is especially important for a high powered laser system.

- Air cooling systems are more compact and portable. The Shark P CL's integrated air cooling allows it to be easily moved between worksites. A water cooling system would require a separate chiller unit.

- Air cooling is better for laser stability. The constant air flow helps prevent thermal lensing effects that can distort the laser beam. Water cooling is prone to temperature fluctuations that impact beam quality.

- With air cooling, the laser system is self-contained. There are no external coolant hoses, pumps or chillers to maintain. This simplifies operation and logistics.

- Air cooled lasers have lower energy costs. The electricity demands of water chillers and pumps are avoided.

Overall, the Shark P CL's air cooling offers significant advantages in usability, reliability, safety, and energy efficiency compared to water cooled laser systems. These benefits make air cooling the optimal choice for industrial cleaning applications.

Laser Power and Performance


The Shark P CL laser cleaning machine utilizes a high-powered laser with adjustable power up to 300W. This allows the laser to be tailored for cleaning a wide variety of materials and surfaces.

The laser has a high pulse rate up to 4000kHz which enables fast cleaning times. The combination of high laser power and rapid pulsing allows the Shark P CL to quickly remove contaminants and coatings with precision.

Some key benefits of the laser capabilities include:

- Power range of 10% to 100%  adjustable in 1% increments
- Pulsing frequency up to 4000kHz, pulse length up to 500ns
- Computer-controlled laser parameters for optimized cleaning
- Ability to handle delicate, sensitive or heat-sensitive materials
- Effective cleaning of metals, stones, ceramics, plastics and more
- High-precision cleaning without damage to underlying surface

The adjustable power and high pulsing frequency of the Shark P CL's laser enables fast, effective cleaning for industrial, research, conservation and other applications. The laser performance is a key advantage of this cleaning system over other methods.


Safety Features


The Shark P CL laser cleaning machine prioritizes operator safety through its advanced safety mechanisms. The machine is equipped with multiple sensors and fail-safes to ensure the laser can only operate when conditions are optimal.  

If the air cooling system fails or overheats occur, the laser will automatically shut off to prevent component damage. The machine also monitors for any internal smoke or fumes, power fluctuations, or laser instability, shutting down if thresholds are exceeded.

Operators are protected against accidental exposure by protective goggles designed specifically for the Shark P CL's laser wavelength. The goggles filter out the harmful radiation. The machine also comes equipped with emergency stop buttons that can immediately halt the laser if needed.

The Shark PCL undergoes rigorous safety testing to receive CE. Multiple procedural safeguards are also implemented, like training requirements for operators, warning labels, and machine maintenance procedures. With its many redundant safety mechanisms, the Shark P CL allows for powerful laser cleaning with complete peace of mind.
