Paper Abstract

Despite the high degree of satisfaction expressed by most laser users due to the good quality of produced parts and attained cost reduction, occasionally 01 jections are voiced regarding reliability and convenient operation of the lasers. One of the reasons may lie in the fact that these machines were not developed by engineers who are familiar with rigid production requirements, but by physicists who place more emphasis on the scientific side of laser technology and laboratory atmosphere. Acknowledgement of this, coupled with five years of experience in the production and operation of CO2-hic-h power lasers within the 1-5 kW performance range, led to the develop-ment of a new laser generation that fulfills the basic requirements necessary for day to day pro luction. The result of this was a compact, robust, reliable and easy-to-operate unit. An explanation of the main features follows:
