Not a system to clean your laser, rather a laser that cleans things.

Just watched a few videos of lasers cleaning large monuments and auto parts....it basically removes rust and grime without harming the stone or metal underneath. It's like sandblasting without the sand.

One website is WeSaveArt dot com or search for GC Laser Systems. One company sells a backpack unit. Looks like these types of lasers have been around since atleast 2007.....so this isn't new technology.

I think these are fiber lasers. Just wondering how much one of these bad boys would cost.

Not very,. I think someone posted here or elsewhere about this recently. I seem to recall somewhere between 10 and 30k.......

Try this link. A search on the word "rust" found it.

I've watched my fiber polish stainless a few times-- seems fathomable that you could stick a 30w fiber in a back pack, and by using a really long lens you'd get a low intensity beam with lots of focal range to 'clean' stuff...

But heaven help the poor soul that may get an errant beam in the eye...

Tried one out on a demo day, 500,000 worth and 1,000 watts of fibre

great if there is a need for them, other than that slower and a LOT more expensive than other methods
