A line of low absorption CO2 laser lenses that are designed to run cooler than standard lenses to provide focal length stability for consistent cuts has been introduced by Laser Research Optics.
Laser Research Cool-Cut CO2 Laser Lenses feature a proprietary coating that absorbs less than 0.15% of laser energy to run cooler than standard lenses and protect against thermal damage. Direct replacements for most standard OEM laser lenses, these cool-running lenses provide focal length stability which results in consistent quality cuts.
Available in 1.5”- to 2”-dia. sizes from 0.236”- to 0.380”-thick with focal lengths from 5.0” to 8.5” in 0.5” increments, Laser Research Cool-Cut CO2 Laser Lenses have a 40-20 scratch-dig surface quality and transmission is greater than 99.0% at 10.6 micron. Longer lasting than standard A/R coated lenses, they are offered unmounted or in customer supplied mounts.
