Laser Research Launches ZnSe Focusing Lenses for Laser Cutting Applications

Posted Jan 17, 2020 by Laser Research Optics

Laser Research Optics has introduced a new line of ZnSe laser focusing lenses that come in various focal lengths for 200 W to 4 kW CO2 cutting lasers processing heavy steel plate.

The ZnSe focusing lenses feature focal lengths from 3” to 10” in 0.5” increments and are designed to let users select the best lens for their laser cutting application. These CO2 lenses are offered with a proprietary Cool-Cut™ coating which absorbs less than 0.15% of laser energy to protect against heat damage or with standard A/R coatings providing less than 0.2% total absorption. Optimized for 10.6 microns, the lenses are offered in 1” to 2” O.D. sizes with thicknesses ranging from 0.250” to 0.380” and come in plano-convex and -meniscus configurations and can be supplied plain or mounted. These CO2 lenses are suited for OEMs and field-replacement.

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