March 6, 2013 - Trotec introduces a new line of CO2 laser sources from US-based manufacturer Iradion Laser Inc. The innovative and patented laser source delivers unparalled reliability, high engraving quality and longevity. The resonator body where the laser radiation is generated is made of 100% ceramic. This is unique in the industry.


Usually all-metal or glass laser sources are used for laser processing. CeramiCore technology totally redefines the basic laser source concept. The ceramic design gives superior benefits compared to all metal or glass lasers. There are no aluminum welds or sealings, which leak over time. Two ceramic half shells are fused together to form the resonator during manufacturing and fired at over 800 degrees celcius. The burning process effectively cleans the interior surface immaculately, removing any impurities.

Furthermore, all of the optical elements and the electrodes are mounted on the outside of the resonator and the gas is excited through the ceramic body. This means that there are no interior metal surfaces that could damage the gas mixture's equilibrium. The result is a pure gas composition over the lifetime of the laser source. These enhancements mean a longer lifetime of the ceramic laser source compared to traditional sources.

Ceramic lasers can be operated at much greater pressures resulting in faster pulse speeds, which are critical for high speed engraving and marking applications. Laser users can benefit from highest engraving quality at speeds up to 140 inches/second.

Also, the innovative architecture features a lower energy consumption. Benchmark tests show an energy reduction rate of up to 30%.
