LightWave CO2 lasers

Kern Technologies has released its LightWave debut line of CO2 lasers. Lasers of 100W, 150W and 200W are available in a sealed and compact design. The lasers are a pulsed design with a fast rise/fall time of just 50μs or less. A circular polariser, collimator and red-beam have all been integrated into the compact design eliminating the need for external beam conditioning optics.

Kern Technologies develops, manufactures and packages the line of CO2 lasers, which are made at the company’s Minnesota, USA headquarters.
