ZnSe Laser Lenses

A line of ZnSe laser focusing lenses for steel cutting lasers up to 4kW that are used to cut thick diamond plate and other heavy steel fabrications has been introduced by Laser Research Optics of Providence, RI.

Laser Research CO2 Focusing Lenses come in 1” to 2.5” O.D. sizes with focal lengths from 5” to 10”, in 0.5” increments, to match specific steel cutting requirements. Designed to let users select the best lens for their applica-tion, these focusing lenses are optimized for 10.6 microns and offered in plano-convex and meniscus configurations; available plain or mounted.

Ideally suited for 200W to 4kW CO2 cutting lasers, Laser Research CO2 Focusing Lenses can be supplied to OEMs and end-users for direct field replacement. Two versions are offered: one with standard A/R coatings that provide < 0.2% total absorption and another with a proprietary Cool-CutTM coating which absorbs < 0.15% of laser energy to protect against heat damage.

Laser Research Optics CO2 Laser Lenses are priced according to configuration and quantity. Price quotations are available upon request and delivery is from stock within 24-hours.
