SEALED OFF CO2 TEA LASERS

Available in EX5 (short pulse sub nS), EX10 and EX350 models, the CO2 TEA laser from GAM LASER is designed to provide high power industrial laser performance in a low cost, high reliability system. The unique linear design of GAM LASER products allows power scaling to be achieved at low incremental cost; thus providing the first cost effective, high power, long life, hard sealed CO2 TEA laser.

The EX10-CO2 gives repetition rates to 100Hz and output power up to 5W. Exceptional dynamic and static gas lifetime is obtained from the total metal/ceramic design and corona preionization system with over 10 million pulses to 90% energy and 8 weeks static gas lifetime.  EX5 models produce output energy up to 25mJ with repetition rates to 400Hz.

The CO2 TEA laser is an all metal/ceramic device and uses the most advanced design of any commercial laser. The laser includes standard features such as active thermal stabilization, constant power and energy control, automatic refill and automatic gas control.

 

FREE RUNNING AND GRATING TUNED MODELS

The line tunable versions offers over 150mJ on the stronger lines with over 60 lines aavailable.

Key Benefits

bullet

Instant on Slid state switch

bullet Up to 1J/pulse multimode
bullet TEM00 or Multimode operation
bullet

10.6mm or 9.3mm versions available

bullet

Low jitter

bullet

Repetition rates to 400Hz

bullet Ideal for micromachining
bullet High peak power GW  level (1014W/cm2) with unstable resonator optics
bullet Good focusability
bullet Computer controlled
bullet 6W average power
bullet

The 9.3mm version of the laser produces cleaner cuts with greatly reduced thermal effects due to high absorption in some material. Absorption in some plastics can be 3-4 times higher at 9.3mm than at 10.6mm.
