Radiance™ High Energy Optics
Product Announcement from Epilog Laser Corp.
The laser tube is the heart of your laser system, but a high quality laser tube is not the only technology involved in creating crisp, sharp engraved images. To enhance the natural characteristics of the CO2 laser beam, Epilog has developed their Radiance™ high energy optics system. These high energy optics, shape and refine the laser beam to create the best possible beam profile for engraving and cutting applications.
There are four significant advantages that our Radiance technology provides over ordinary beam delivery optical systems:
1) A Rounder Spot: A spot size that is as close to circular as possible produces laser characteristics that are the same in both the X and Y directions, providing crisper, more consistent engraving and cutting profiles.
2) More Uniform Spot Over the Entire Work Area: Because all CO2 laser beams diverge after they leave the laser tube, the beam can actually change shape from one end of the work table to the other. Epilog's Radiance technology produces the most uniform spot in the industry and is incorporated as standard equipment on the Mini 24, Helix and Legend 36EXT.
3) Smaller Spot Size: A smaller spot means you can produce finer detail in engraving and cutting applications. Just look at the detail in some of our samples - it's truly amazing!
4) Higher Power Density: When a laser beam is focused to a smaller spot, its power density goes up because you have the same amount of power in a smaller area. This helps produce a deeper, darker mark and is beneficial in virtually every engraving and cutting application.
Included as a standard feature in all Mini 24 x 12, Helix, and Legend EXT lasers systems, Epilog's Radiance™ optical technology helps produce the sharpest image available in any CO2 laser system today.
