Providence, RI - A full line of CO2 lenses and mirrors for engraving and marking lasers that are optimized for 10.6 micron and available for field replacement by users are available from Laser Research Optics.
Laser Research CO2 lenses and turning mirrors meet ISO-10110 specifications for optical elements and are suitable for OEMs and as field replacements for end-users. Featuring coatings with < 0.2% total absorption values to keep them cooler, the lenses are capable of maintaining sharper cuts with fewer passes, and the silicon mirrors are made from silicon with an enhanced silver DMBR coating to provide up to 99.6% reflectivity, claims the firm.
These CO2 lenses are offered in 1/2 in. to 1-1/2 in. sizes with focal lengths from 1 in. to 25 in. in 1/2 in. increments. Turning mirrors come in 3/4 in. to 3 in. dia. sizes from 2 to 10 mm thick. They are available for various lasers.
