1 Industrial Laser Catalog QUALITY ENGINEERING FABRICATION PRECISION INVENTORY

2 Laser Mechanisms, Inc. Laser Mechanisms is the recognized world leader in the design and manufacture of laser beam delivery components and articulated arm systems. Founded in 1980 by William G. Fredrick, one of the leading pioneers in the laser industry, Laser Mechanisms has been in business for over 25 years and has a staff of system experts with over 300 years combined laser processing experience. Laser Mechanisms products are used in every type of industrial application including cutting, welding, drilling, scribing, surface treatment and other processes. The products are used with every type of laser, including CO 2, Nd:YAG, Fiber Laser and more. Over the years the company has introduced many innovations to enhance the performance, safety, capability, ease of use and cost effectiveness of laser processing. One of these innovations is the cartridge style lens holder which is shown on the AccuCutter and AccuFocus products in this catalog. These holders make it very simple to change, replace and clean the focusing lens on a laser head. It is also possible to combine more than one of these holders within a single assembly to allow the use of different focal lengths for different laser applications with a single piece of equipment. Due to the limited space in this catalog, other examples of the company s innovations such as Articulated Arms, Trepanning, Vision Systems and custom products cannot be included in these pages. While this is only a brief introduction to Laser Mechanisms and its products, we invite you to contact us for more information. With corporate headquarters located in Novi, Michigan and sales offices in Mariakerke, Belgium, Laser Mechanisms is firmly positioned to support its global customer base. At Laser Mechanisms we ve been providing solutions for industrial laser beam delivery for over 25 years, let us provide a solution for you today. (248)

4 AccuCutter System The AccuCutter System consists of modular components that can be configured for your specific laser cutting application. ➃ A basic AccuCutter System includes: Gas Jet Tips available in a variety of openings and sizes Gas Jet Manifolds for introducing assist gas to the cutting process and providing focus adjustment Lens Holders allows for easy cleaning and replacement of lenses Crash Protectors for safety in case of collision Precision Slides to adjust the height of the assembly to the material Gas Jet Tip Gas Jet Manifold Lens Holders AccuFocus System The AccuFocus System includes the same features as AccuCutter, with the addition of automatic height sensing to maintain the cutting head at the proper distance from the material. For CO 2, Nd:YAG and Fiber Lasers ➄ Available in a wide range of focal lengths can have multiple focal lengths in the same assembly Adaptable for custom applications ➃ Gas Jet Tip Gas Jet Manifold Lens Holders ➃ Automatic Height Sensor ➄ Crash Protector 2 (248)

5 Parabolic Welding System The Parabolic Welding System consists of modular components that can be configured for your specific laser welding application. Many laser welding heads use transmissive lenses that are very similar to the AccuCutter laser cutting heads but without the cutting tip. In place of the tip, a welding head may have a cone with a large opening or a cross-flow assembly for shielding gas. Parabolic welding heads use a special reflective mirror to focus the beam instead of a transmissive lens. The reflective mirrors provide increased durability and performance, especially with higher power lasers. Parabolic mirrors are made of highly polished copper which are easily cleaned. All models also include an air knife to protect the mirror from debris. Mirrors are water-cooled and some assemblies include a thermal interlock switch to further protect against excessive heat build-up from the process. Parabolic mirrors can also be designed to split the laser beam into two spots (dual spot). The dual spot process is used in applications such as automotive roof panel welding. Many models include a swivel plate that allows the head to be positioned at various angles. For high power CO 2 lasers Wide range of focal lengths and laser spot sizes Can produce two focused spots from a single laser beam for special applications Parabola Air Knife Precision Slide 3

6 Knuckle Style For low power and small beam diameters Block Style For high power and large beam diameters are used to change the path of the laser beam in order to direct it to a desired location. They use a mirror located inside a holder to turn the beam at a 90 angle (other angles are also possible). There are two basic styles of beam benders the knuckle style and the block style. Knuckle style beam benders have clear apertures of 15 mm, 19 mm and 35 mm. Block style beam benders have clear apertures of 25 mm, 35 mm, 50 mm and 70 mm. Mirror sizes for the knuckle style beam benders are 1 inch and 1.5 inch diameters. Mirror sizes for block style beam benders are 1.5 inch, 2 inch, 3 inch and 4 inch. For CO 2, Nd:YAG and Fiber Lasers For high-power and low-power lasers For large and small beam diameters Provide adjustment to properly align and steer the laser beam Interlocked versions available for safety Mirror Cap Mirror Adjustment Safety Interlock 4 (248)

7 Beam Shuttles Beam Shuttles are used to switch the laser beam in one or more directions by moving a mirror in and out of the beam path. Shuttles allow a single laser to be shared with two or more workstations. This is also known as time-sharing. Beam In Beam Out Position One Beam Out Position Two Beam Splitters Beam Splitters are used to split the laser beam into two or more separate beams. Each beam will have a percentage of the total laser power (for example, a 100 watt laser can be split into two 50 watt beams). Splitters allow a single laser to process more than one part at the same time. This is also known as energy-sharing. Single Beam In Split Beam Out Position One Split Beam Out Position Two 5

8 Transmissive Collimator Reflective Collimator Collimators Collimators are used to change the size of the laser beam. They are also known as beam expanders when they are used to increase the size of the beam. Collimators are useful for creating a desired laser spot size or for controlling the beam diameter over long distances. Collimators can be transmissive (using lenses) or reflective (using mirrors). A transmissive collimator (also known as a beam telescope) is a simple device using a combination of negative and positive lenses. Reflective collimators are used with higher power lasers because of the potential thermal effect on lenses by these lasers. Various expansion ratios are available. Some of the more common ratios are 2X (doubles the beam size), 2.5X (increases the beam size two-and-a-half times), 3X (triples the beam size) and 5X (increases the beam size five times). In addition, other expansion ratios can also be achieved. Some collimators, known as variable collimators allow the expansion ratio to be automatically changed by using motors to move the mirrors or lenses. Beam In Collimated Beam Out 6 (248)

9 Polarizers Polarizers, also known as Cut Quality Enhancers (CQE), are used to convert a linear polarized laser beam (which is naturally produced by many CO 2 lasers) into a circular polarization beam which is better suited for laser cutting. When the beam is linear polarized the cut width (kerf) in the material will be different depending on the direction of the cut. When the beam is circular polarized the cut width is uniform regardless of the direction of the cut. The most basic polarizer is simply a beam bender with a phase-shift mirror. Other polarizers may use two mirrors or four mirrors. The choice depends on the beam size and the vector plane of polarization from the laser. Beam In Linear Polarization Beam Out Circular Polarization Feedback Isolators Feedback Isolators perform the same function as a polarizer in that they also convert a linear polarized beam into a circular polarized beam. In addition, they include an isolator optic which will absorb light that may be reflected off the material back into the optical system. This serves to protect the laser resonator from potentially serious damage from back reflections. Beam In Linear Polarization Beam Out Circular Polarization 7

10 Small Aperture For Low-Power Lasers ➃ ➄ ➅ ➆ is a group of components and systems specially designed for use with low power (less than 400 watts) CO 2 lasers. The offers a low cost solution for the beam delivery requirements of these increasingly popular lasers. The uses the knuckle style beam benders with clear apertures of 15 mm and 19 mm as shown on page 4. This series also offers mounting plates to the most popular lasers in the low power level. These mounting plates are designed to match the hole pattern on the output face of the laser and also provide adjustment and centering to the laser beam. Low Power CO 2 Laser Diode Pointer Collimator ➃ Beam Bender Knuckle ➄ Vernier Adjust Spacer ➅ Gas Jet Manifold and Lens Holder ➆ Cutting (or Welding) Tip 8 (248)

11 Gas Jet Manifold The Gas Jet Manifold is a complete assembly that also includes the lens holder and the gas jet tip. Various focal lengths are available. The most common (standard) focal lengths are 1.5 inch, 2.5 inch and 4 inch. For applications where a gas jet is not required, the tip can be removed or a simple lens holder is available to replace the entire gas jet manifold. Diode Pointer The Diode Pointer provides a tool for alignment of the beam delivery system by introducing a visible (red diode) light into the laser beam path. The Diode Pointer is easily adjusted to keep the red light in accurate alignment with the laser beam in both the near-field and the far-field. The Diode Pointer is also a safety device that allows the user to check the location of the laser beam without having the laser on. Lens Holder Gas Jet Manifold Cutting (or Welding) Tip Switch For Diode Beam Beam In Beam Out Vernier Adjust Spacer The Vernier Adjust Spacer allows for fine focus adjustment of the lens to the material. The Vernier Adjust Spacer is mounted above the gas jet manifold and focusing lens holder. When the vernier barrel is rotated, it raises (or lowers) the lens by 0.05 inches per full turn with 1.5 inches of travel. A scale is marked on the tube to provide an exact reference of the location. The device is then locked into position when the proper distance is achieved. 9
