Synrad, a provider of high performance CO2 lasers, will showcase its newly released vi40, a compact 40W laser for industrial coding, marking and engraving applications. The vi40 with Synrad’s new Gen2 tube design delivers a stable, accurate laser beam for precise control and high-resolution processing without external correction optics typically required with other CO2 lasers.

Built to perform in demanding industrial environments, the vi40 has a wide operating temperature range, and enables real-time temperature monitoring of the laser tube to ensure optimal laser performance with the new temperature broadcast feature.

The vi40 offers 40W of continuous power, excellent beam quality, and 100kHz max pulse frequency.
