Designed for use with Computer-Controlled Compressed Air Unit
Air Assist with Optics Protection extends the life of your focus lenses by protecting them from the smoke, debris, or flames generated by laser processing.
While Universal's focus lenses are designed for durability and ease of use, no optics are invulnerable. If an errant flame or a piece of ejected material strikes the focus lens, the lens may crack and need to be replaced at a cost of several hundred dollars. Air Assist with Optics Protection significantly reduces this risk by blowing compressed air onto the work surface, suppressing flames and blowing smoke and debris away. The compressed air keeps potentially damaging particulates at a safe distance from the focus lens.
In addition to the optics protection benefits, Air Assist with Optics Protection can provide superior processing results on some materials, preventing melt-back and ensuring cut edges are smooth and polished. Air Assist with Optics Protection is available in standard and computer-controlled versions. The computer controlled version turns on and off automatically and adjusts the airflow rate based on the job being run.
