Continuous Laser Cleaning Machine and Pulsed Laser Cleaning Machine are two different types of laser cleaning systems used for surface cleaning and preparation. While they both utilize lasers for cleaning purposes, there are some key differences between the two technologies.


1000W 2000W 3000W continuous laser cleaning machine uses a laser beam with a continuous wave (CW) output. This means that the laser emits a continuous stream of light during the cleaning process. The laser beam is directed at the surface to be cleaned, and the continuous beam ablates or vaporizes the contaminants or unwanted material on the surface. This type of laser cleaning is effective for removing thin layers of dirt, dust, rust, or paint from surfaces. Continuous laser cleaning machines are often used for delicate surfaces or in applications that require a controlled and precise removal of contaminants.


100W 200W 300W 500W Pulsed laser cleaning machine, on the other hand, uses laser beams with pulsed outputs. The laser emits short pulses of high-intensity light. These pulses are typically nanoseconds to microseconds in duration and have high peak powers. When the laser beam interacts with the surface, the rapid and intense pulses cause a process called ablation, where the unwanted material is rapidly vaporized or removed. Pulsed laser cleaning machines are particularly effective for removing thicker layers of contaminants, tough coatings, or materials with higher melting points. They are often used for industrial cleaning applications, such as removing heavy rust, oxides, or paint from metal surfaces.

  • Key Differences:

    Choosing between continuous and pulsed laser cleaning machines depends on the specific cleaning requirements of the application. Factors such as the type and thickness of the contaminants, the material of the surface to be cleaned, and the desired cleaning precision all play a role in determining which type of machine is more suitable.

  1. Cleaning Capability: Pulsed laser cleaning machines are generally more powerful and can remove thicker or tougher contaminants compared to continuous laser cleaning machines. Pulsed lasers can deliver higher peak powers, enabling efficient removal of stubborn materials.

  2. Precision and Control: Continuous laser cleaning machines offer better control and precision due to their continuous wave output. They are suitable for applications that require careful removal of contaminants without damaging the underlying surface.

  3. Speed: Pulsed laser cleaning machines are typically faster in terms of cleaning speed due to their higher power output. Continuous laser cleaning machines may require multiple passes or longer exposure times to achieve the same level of cleaning.

  4. Cost: Pulsed laser cleaning machines tend to be more expensive than continuous laser cleaning machines due to their higher power and more complex design.
