Paper Abstract

In this lesson, we present an overview on requirements for mobile laser cleaning systems with respect to safety, parameter regimes and performance. The given statements result from investigations over the last four years in developing and testing mobile laser cleaning systems to optimize their technique and to increase the applications. Most of the described features were developed together with restorers in outdoor tests, what gave us a good understanding of the restorers' needs and expectations. Starting with the restorers aim when restoring sculptures or buildings, we describe an ideal system, a complete system and presently used systems. We describe some useful features for mobile cleaning systems and the main aspects of safety philosophy.
