MATE LENSMATE....the easy
way to ensure optimum laser cutting performance.
LENSMATE - inspection of clear lenses in under
- Visual inspection of laser lenses in
less than 30 seconds in normal room light, without
fixtures or power source.
- Maximize machine productivity by identifying
underperforming and stressed lenses before failure.
The Mate Lensmate lens inspection
system allows a visual inspection of the lens to be
performed in 30 seconds or less every time a lens
is cleaned or changed. The test is easily performed
in normal room light and requires no fixtures or power
Under normal usage, any CO2 laser lens
can undergo excessive thermal and/or mechanical stresses
from a variety of sources. Incorrect mounting, residue
and dirt accumulation, or poor beam dynamics may result
in lens stress.
A stressed lens will not perform at
peak levels, which reduces productivity. Severe stress
may result in lens failure, machine downtime and repair
costs. Use the Mate Lensmate to ensure optimum cutting
