How Do Your Industrial Coatings Systems Hold Up?

Custom Optics That Deliver Custom Results

Bedford, NH - October 15, 2020 - Laser Components, a global manufacturer of laser optics, offers a wide array of optimally adapted products to meet every customer's unique requirements. From substrate production and coatings to thorough outgoing goods inspection, all operating steps are carried out in house. Many end products, such as internal coating optics from NUTECH, require small numbers of precisely manufactured optics, used to equip tubes and hollow bodies with corrosion and wear protection from the inside. The functionality of these custom-made tools largely depends on the quality of the mirrors and lenses installed. Thickness, radius, and radius of the curvature of the individual lenses depend on the length of the tool, the coating material, and type of laser used.

Based on computer-calculated lens design and the technical capabilities of the production facilities, LASER COMPONENTS' engineers work closely with the customer to develop designs that achieve the desired beam properties and cost-effective manufacturing. Grinding and polishing machines are designed for substrates with diameters ranging from 12.7 mm to 55 mm. Each substrate blank is individually clamped in the grinding machine, and adjusted for each lens type, followed by a fine polishing process to that finds the smallest of irregularities. This results in optimally shaped lenses with a maximum deviation of λ/10.

Several processes are available for coating optics offering different possibilities in layer tension, laser damage threshold, combinability, and complexity of the layer design. This ensures the best processes for optimum customization for our customers. The manufacturer selects the best process together with the customer.

"We are committed to the attention to detail of each individual optic, states Rene Sattler, product engineer. This ensures that each optical piece meets the exact specifications and high quality that our customers expect".

Featured Product

Heavy Duty Line Vac™

Heavy Duty Line Vac™

Convey parts, materials, waste - with no moving parts! A fast, low cost way to convey plastic pellets, scrap trim, textiles, bulk solids, food products, chips, paper, pills/tablets, small parts, shavings, sawdust and granules. The Heavy Duty Line Vac is EXAIR's most powerful conveyor, designed for rugged industrial applications. It has been engineered to convey more materials over longer vertical and horizontal distances in less time. The hardened alloy construction helps prevent premature wear. Line Vac conveyors are ideal for moving large volumes of material over long distances. A small amount of compressed air is injected through directed nozzles to produce a vacuum on one end and high output flows on the other, with instantaneous response. The material flow rate is easily controlled with a pressure regulator. No moving parts or electricity assures maintenance free operation.
