The FLYPEAK laser is the revolution of laser marking on plastics. This DPSS system (Diode Pumped Solid State) combines high peak power with a much shorter pulse duration than solid-state lasers on the market, while maintaining average power: there is currently no laser source on the market with the same performance.
FLYPEAK operates in a single shot to 100kHz range with a pulse-width between 2 and 10 ns.
Controlling the heat input is a determining factor in obtaining quality marking on plastics: too much heat can create burns at the edges of the marking, compromising the quality and therefore the contrast: instead of the white color, we will obtain a brown-yellow color.
The FLYPEAK laser pulse is always below 10ns throughout the range (at 20kHz = 3.5ns), which lets us cool down the marking compared to traditional nanosecond lasers, including fiber lasers, and consequently increase the quality of the process and result.
The peak power is 3 times higher than the green lasers on the market and 50 times higher than the fiber laser. This allows the beam to remain on the surface for such a short period of time that the risk of burning is reduced to 0, with optimal results for contrast and definition.

While marking quality is not compromised, the advantages of the FLYPEAK over ultraviolet technology are mainly:
As far as the fiber laser is concerned, an apparent disadvantage may be the slightly higher price of the FLYPEAK. However, when comparing the quality of the results obtained on plastics and the total absence of a risk of burns due to the high peak power and reduced time, the economic disadvantage is irrelevant. The advantages of FLYPEAK, on the other hand, are considerable:
