The next generation of laser cleaning machines

With great pride Netalux launched her own laser cleaning machine in spring 2020, Needle®.

This machine is the first in line of a series of new laser cleaning equipment.

Needle is a compact, multi-purpose machine.

Our first machine has already won the Red Dot Design Award 2020, Industrial Design. The Red Dot logo is internationally known as a symbol of quality for good design, and is the perfect way for companies to distinguish their product. We are extremely proud of this, and are happy to bring a new generation of laser cleaning machines to the market. These machines are built for users, by users!

The user is central to us, increasing the productivity and the user friendliness is therefore the basis for the innovative feautures on our machines.

In summer 2020 we will continue to launch its bigger brother.

Needle® - The machine that works with you

Needle® is an award-winning laser cleaning machine, made to be used in all circumstances. Moreover, the machine is developed to make it as easy as possible for the user to execute his assignment. This lightweight but robust machine is perfect for smaller assignments such as the cleaning of a weld or spot repair.

We named our machine "Needle" because it is a laser with a Gaussian profile and a sharper pulse, hence the comparison with a needle. Needle standardly has a 100 Watt pulsed laser source, but is also available in 50 Watt, and soon we will bring out versions in 200 and 300 Watt. Needle is also available as built-in for automised product or process lines.

Our machines encompass a few world scoops in the area of productivity and user friendliness, which are further explained below. Thanks to our experience as a service provider, we know like no other where improvements are needed to make laser cleaning as efficient and easy as possible.

It's not for nothing that these machines are built for users, by users!

NX1 rotatable laser head

Ergonomic game changer

Our team of experts has continously taken ergonomics into account when designing this machine. Laser cleaning can be physically challenging in certain circumstances, that's why Netalux has developed a few innovations to make the job easier.

First, we developed a rotatable laser head, which can be rotated 115°. This allows you to laser under a different angle than 90°, which makes the job easier, especially when you're cleaning vertically or above your head. With this innovation, you don't have to take on an uncomfortable position anymore, but can just change the position of the laser head.

Furthermore, the 360° adjustable second handle will make sure that you can hold the handset in a way that feels most comfortable for you. The weight of the handset is hereby also distributed efficiently, a big advantage when you have to laser for longer periods of time.

From experience we also know how important it is to clearly see what you are doing. The integrated LED headlight conveniently solves that problem, without needing any extra equipment!

Laser cleaning like never before

Besides the ergonomic second handle, the rotatable laser head and the LED headlight, we have also integrated a few other innovative features on the handset.

Netalux developed a unique system with which you can simply push a button to change the lens. Sometimes you need to use a different lens to bundle energy for example, or to distribute it more eavenly. With Needle, you no longer have to change the lens manually, so that the system always remains safe and protected from dust and dirt.

Besides that, the machine will give you instant feedback about the speed of cleaning and about safety, through the integrated screen on the handset. With the red button you can directly activate or deactivate the laser for more safety. Finally, you can perform basic configurations via the buttons on the control panel at the bottom, so that you don't always have to run back to the main unit.

Lifting eyes

Regularly the cleaning needs to be done at height. Despite the limited weight of the machine, it can be useful to hoist it. Therefore we built in two strong lifting eyes on both sides of the machine. Maybe you work with rope access? Then you'll be happy with this feature!

Robust, multi-functional and reliable. Needle has what it takes for you to be productive. The machine is compact and has multiple handles, so that you can even work in hard to reach places.

Easy to configure

We made sure that you can program the machine without the need for an extra laptop or tablet. The built-in configuration panel is reinforced with hardened glass, and includes a touch-screen. Simple adjustments can be made on the handset itself, so that you don't always have to run back to the main unit. Time is money!
