600 Air-Cooled Argon Laser System


The 600 argon laser has been engineered to meet today's most demanding needs for the mid-power range in OEM applications. Designed in a rectangular package, the 600 provides unparalleled beam quality that is constant across output power levels and through fiber delivery systems.

The 600 also offers improved thermal stability, longer life and low electronic and optical noise. The laser incorporates the latest in internal mirror tube technology securing permanent beam alignment and eliminating contamination. NLC’s design permits ease of servicing and simple, drop-in laser tube replacement.
