Beam Shutters

1 Channel Beam Switch

A Beam Shutter, or a 1-channel Beam Switch, is mainly used to increase the process speed in a production line. By adding a high-speed shutter to the beam path, the laser can be kept on and the laser input to the process fiber can be controlled through the shutter. In addition, beam shutters provide ease of replacement of process fibers when switching from one application to another or in case of damage to a process fiber. Typical feeding fiber core diameter is 50 μm, while process fibers have many different core diameters up to several hundreds of microns. Beam shutters are available with 12, 25 and 50 mm optics. Beam Shutters are configured with QBH compatible HLC connectors and QD compatible LCA bayonets and adaptors as well.
