PITTSBURGH, Jan. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- II‐VI Incorporated (NASDAQ:IIVI), a world leader in laser optics and subsystems, today announced the launch of its new scan lenses for micro materials processing in the near- and mid-infrared spectrum.
The growing adoption of industrial lasers in manufacturing is driving the demand for beam delivery solutions that achieve the utmost in versatility, precision and quality at each materials processing step. By combining optics based on zinc sulfide multispectral and fused silica materials II-VI has achieved new smaller and lighter scan lenses operating at one micron wavelength, enabling faster micro materials processing with fiber lasers. II-VI has also developed a proprietary housing design to seal scan lenses and achieve very high transmission at five micron wavelength, enabling micro materials processing with carbon monoxide (CO) lasers.
“II-VI’s portfolio of laser optics covers the far-infrared to ultraviolet spectrum and serves a wide range of multi-laser applications such as OLED display processing and laser additive manufacturing,” said John Ryan, Vice President of Sales, II-VI Laser Solutions. “The breadth of our scan lens portfolio is unmatched in the industry and offers our customers the convenience of working with a single supplier for their advanced beam delivery systems.”
II-VI’s broad portfolio of far-infrared to ultraviolet laser optics includes mirrors, aspheric lenses, beam expanders, focus modules, CVD diamond optics and debris windows. II-VI offers a broad range of freeform beam shaping laser optics including facetted integrators, vortex lenses, flat top converters, biconic lenses, axicons and dual focus lenses. II-VI offers a wide selection of industry standard optical coatings as well as its high durability Diamond OverCoat.
