Laser Beam Shaper uses low-dispersion refractive optics.

Jun 25, 2003

Refractive Beam Shaper converts Gaussian laser beam input to produce collimated, flat-top beam that can propagate without change in power and intensity, or loss of uniformity over large distances. Optics produce no hard edges, speckles, or diffraction effects. Shaper functions over large bandwidth from far IR to deep UV allowing for use in many fields. Applications include illumination, laser... Read More

Hydraulic Coupling System suits CNC centers.

May 13, 2003

Hydro-Coupler(TM) provides through-door, continuous, hydraulic connection to hydraulic workholding fixtures on carrousel type pallet changers. Unit applies pressure from 1,000-5,000 psi from top of pallet to ensure that full clamping force is never lost. System automatically monitors clamping pressures, hydraulics level, and temperature and responds to irregularities. Continuously connected... Read More
