10.6 micron CO2 laser

Universal Laser Systems has introduced its single resonator 200W and optically-combined dual resonator 400W lasers, as part of its 10.6 micron CO2 laser product range.

Both lasers, available with a 30-day evaluation programme in October 2013, have RF power supplies and patented in-line air-cooling. These lasers employ a folded, slab resonator design making them compact. A new RF power supply design operates on 48CV DC and includes a communication port for monitoring laser status. Temperature controlled fans allow operation at lower duty cycles. Both lasers are available with a pointer.
