The order details are provided below for industry standard diameters (1.00", 1.10", 1.25", 1.50" and 2.00"). Certain lens mounts will require a smaller or larger lens thickness to properly adapt. Click the drop down menus. Select the appropriate thickness and quantity. Unit pricing is based on in-stock status. If the stock is depleted, unit pricing is subject to change and becomes based on current material availability, production criteria and related costs. If unlisted, offer request for a specific diameter, thickness or drilled configuration.
The Lens Protector is a CO2 laser precision optic fabricated from either Potassium Chloride (KCl) or Zinc Selenide (ZnSe). The KCl lens protector is a cost effective solution to maximize the productive life of a Zinc Selenide (ZnSe) focus lens within a CO2 laser system designed for cutting, welding or laser engraving at 10.6 micron. The ZnSe lens protector offers material advantages of greater hardness, strength and durability which includes a performance enhancing anti-reflection coating that provides for more than 98.5% transmission and reflection losses less than 0.25% per surface at 10.6 micron.
The lens protector establishes nobility as a focus lens shield against airborne particles (back spatter, fumes) and the variety of contaminants surrounding the work area. Most lens mounts are designed to provide adequate space for the insertion of a plano-plano lens protector in front of the ZnSe focusing lens. REFLEX suggests confirming the available space within the ZnSe focus lens mount or laser head since there is variation depending upon the laser manufacturer and the ZnSe focus lens edge thickness. Lens protectors can be supplied as thin as 2mm. The diameter of the lens protector would be the same as the ZnSe focus lens diameter.
REFLEX Analytical proclaims a proprietary lens protector processing technique for optimal performance at 10.6 micron. The process provides for superior laser energy throughput. In addition, this unsurpassed technique enhances resistance to humidity and moisture while also increasing the durability of the lens protector for extended utility. The life of the lens protector would be typical of the life associated with an unprotected ZnSe focus lens which is dependent upon the circumstances during the work process.
The lens protector is excellent value added benefit for CO2 laser operators, who are particularly pleased with the savings lens protectors can offer since the damage and replacement of the ZnSe focus lens is reduced significantly.
