New Speargun Laser Aiming System

Categories:

A new Speargun Laser Aiming System designed specifically for blue-water and reef spearfishing will be introduced at this year’s Blue Wild Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The GRT58DC, built by Little Rock, Arkansas-based Laser Tools Co., includes a bright laser beam that pinpoints the exact point of the spear’s impact. This means more head shots, less bleed-out and more first shot kills.

Here’s how it works: The momentary thumb switch turns the laser on right before the shot is taken, ensuring stealthy stalks and minimal school notice. The bright laser dot is enhanced in size for quick impact placement. This means that the precise shot location is known before the trigger is pulled.

Laser Tools Co. calls it “One Dot, One Shot.”

Red or green laser beams are available, with the green being 10 times brighter than red and often used in the Pelagic Zone.

The Model GRT58DC Green Laser Aiming System weights 3.8 ounces (108 grams) underwater so disturbance to buoyancy would be minimal. All components are 3D printed with a resin for corrosion resistance and serviceability. Windage and elevation adjustments are included so that fine laser adjustments can be made even during the dive.

A target is included for beam alignment during installation along with the adjustable mount. The laser itself has a power cord that connects to the remote trigger battery supply which doubles as a camera mount for live action videos. Optional spacers are available to space the laser mount above different size bands.

Loading Dock Laser Guide Beams

This is why Laser Tools Co.’s Laser Docking™ System is the perfect trailer docking assistant. A driver can “see” the laser docking lines in his wing mirrors when the truck and trailer are approaching the docking lane. This guides the driver while backing up to the loading dock. Also, the laser lines provide a visual indication that the trailer is centered to the loading dock.

How a Laser Docking™ System Works

If you shine a laser beam onto a floor, you’ll see a dot. If you install line generating optics, the dot will turn into a line. But viewing the dot or line from the point of view beside or behind the laser is not totally revealing. If you stand in front of the laser line generator module and look at the laser line, the increased brightness is noticeable. This is because you are viewing the incident light reflected off of the floor. Also the viewable line is much longer. This means that the brighter laser line can be seen in low ambient light conditions and farther away from the laser module itself.

Alignment Lasers Can Soon Improve Space Missions

Categories:

Lasers are shining their light into outer space, and if this tech improvement goes according to plan, it might help NASA and other space agencies explore space and boldly go where no man has ever gone before.

The Light to Improved Docking

In 2014, the European Space Agency (ESA) managed to complete a new docking technique by its fifth and last Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), the Georges Lemaître. The ATV captured the International Space Station (ISS) in a new light using a set of experimental lasers and sensors that, if successful, may give rise to the next-generation of automated docking systems.

This advanced technology will be a big step towards making life easy, not just for the space agencies, but for the common folk, as well. For the National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA) and other related agencies, the development of the new laser and sensors will be crucial for their increasingly-ambitious missions to explore Mars and beyond.

Seeing the First Light

Lasers and sensors for docking are not really new. LaserToolsCo.com, a supplier of quality marine lasers, explains that laser-guided docking is present in many every day settings. One type of marine helps captains dock their boats properly into tight docks. Another type allows remotely-operated underwater vehicle (ROVs) to get a better look of what’s down deep.

The laser-guided docking system currently in testing use the same principle as the ones used in ROVs, ordinary boats, and docks.

Replacing the Old Light

Using the new system, the ESA successfully completed five automated dockings, safely affixing the ATV carrying supplies to the ISS. The docking of the Georges Lemaître represents the first field test of a new docking system that could replace the navigation sensors currently used by NASA, ESA, and other agencies.

With the experimental Laser Infrared Imaging Sensors (LIRIS) and a new lidar (sort of a radar that uses light instead of radio waves), the ISS was able to track and guide the ATV into position. The new technology presents a whole new set of possibilities, including tracking capabilities in both sunlight and darkness, as well as long range alignment and target acquisition features.

In time, the experimental laser technology—especially with its capability to dock with inert objects—could help in de-orbiting space junk or even allow spacecraft to dock around a distant planet.

IN A NEW LIGHT: HOW GREEN LASER TECHNOLOGY HAS CHANGED MINING

Categories:

Rock face profiling, geological mapping, and stockpile volume measurements—mining applications like these have been easier and safer, thanks to the rapidly advancing laser technology. This technology had such a far-reaching impact on the mining industry over the years, that the benefits simply outweigh the costs.

One of the emerging trends in laser technology is green laser—they’re efficient, economical, and have a range of uses. It has greatly changed the industry into something better. Read on to find out how.

Increased Visibility

Unlike red, the color green is closer to the center of the color spectrum, making it more visible than many other colors. Green laser light is up to 50 times—that’s right—brighter than red laser light. This means you can see the light even during broad daylight or in direct sunlight. For mining purposes, green laser makes it easier to see in the dark mining sites. Some tools using green laser technology can even form a visible beam without the help of fog or dust.

More Applications

Because it is more visible and provides a stable and straight beam, green laser works well for different applications. It is perfect for drawing lines across worktables or surfaces. According to Laser Tools Company and other experts, you can even use them as saw guides, for metal forming, positioning production parts, machine alignment, and warehouse row striping.

Lower Radiation Levels

Green lasers are extremely powerful. Unlike red lasers, fortunately, they have infrared filters that remove or lessen the radiation produced by the beam of the laser. This makes them more health-friendly despite their high power.

Travels Long Range Distances

Because green laser has more energy, it’s not only more visible than red laser—it can also travel up to three miles. It can even project a small dot on clouds and hillsides as far as 9,000 feet or 2,740 meters away. Even in the long distance and with extended range, they stay straighter as well compared to red laser beams.

With the green laser’s better visibility, more uses, lower radiation levels, and so much more, the mining industry has never been better. Now there are better mining methods, and the work itself is safer for miners.

Different Laser Colors and Their Corresponding Function

Categories:

Most people did not think much of lasers back in the day, but technological advancements resulted in further development for its use and application in various fields. These days, lasers are an essential in mining and construction sites across the globe, and it is also a crucial innovation in the field of medicine.

Buying a laser used to be easy because of the limited choices, but it now requires more research. Lasers now come in different colors—green, red, blue and yellow—and function in different ways, too.

Green Light Laser

Green light lasers are the most common and popular today. As a leading manufacturer of underground laser alignment tools, Laser Tools Co. Inc. shares that green laser light is ten to 50 times brighter than the red light lasers. This means improved visibility of laser lines or dots, even during broad daylight and in direct sunlight. It can travel longer distances of up to three miles, which is why it is an essential in various industrial worksites. Its wavelength is 532nm and its power is 5mW to 130mW.

Red Light Laser

Red light lasers were once the standard, but lost its supremacy down the road. Red lasers lack the power and distance possible in newer models. Red lasers use diodes, optics, and various electronic components. Its wavelength is 630-680nm and its power is 5mW and below.

Blue Light Laser

Blue light lasers have a shorter wavelength compared to red lasers, allowing for stronger focus or resolution in very fine structures in imaging applications. They are used in interferometers like compact discs, laser printers, digital photofinishing, data recording, and CD and DVD players. Its wavelength is 445nm and its power is 500mW.

Yellow Light Laser

Yellow light lasers are commonly used in hospitals and have good effects on several viral infections, multiple sclerosis, and helps patients with panic attacks, depression and anxiety disorders. Its wavelength is 593.5nm and its power is .6-19mW.

Lasers have grown in use and popularity because though they are small and light, they have powerful features and exceptional functionality.
