CO2 laser cutting lenses introduced for big steel fabrications

Share this on social media:

Laser Research Optics has introduced a line of laser optics that are offered in various focal lengths to let OEMs who manufacture lasers for cutting large steel fabrications optimise their lens selection or for end-users who want to replace their own lenses

Laser Research Optics CO2 Laser Lenses are offered in 1” to 2” O.D. sizes with thicknesses ranging from 0.250” to 0.380” and feature focal lengths from 3” to 10” in 0.5” increments. Ideally suited for 10.6 micron 200W to 4kW CO2 lasers used to cut steel bridge structures, they come in plano-convex and meniscus configurations and can be supplied plain or mounted.

Available with standard A/R coatings that provide less than 0.2% total absorption and another with a proprietary Cool-CutTM coating which absorbs less than 0.15% of laser energy to protect against heat damage, Laser Research Optics CO2 Laser Lenses are suitable for OEMs or for field-replacement by end users.
