What are Laser Lenses and Mirrors?
In laser engraving or cutting, the results obtained depend largely on the type of lens used in the same way that different lenses are used to take photographs in the cameras.
The different lenses are differentiated by the focal length they provide and is expressed in inches, the focal length is the distance from the lens to the laser focus, the decision of which lens to use depends on a number of factors: laser power, type of material, detail and resolution of the graphic (dpi) or the thickness of the material. As a general rule it is considered that the greater the degree of detail in the graphic, the shorter the focal length will be laser engraving. The thicker the material you want to laser cut, the longer the focal length.
These lenses are made of ZnSe (Zinc Selenide), this material allows different special properties; such as most light pipe, less absorption of heat and higher resistance compared to the pressures. By having a planoconvex structure, it generates the uniform distribution of heat and power of the light beam.
Laser mirrors have a structure made of metallic molybdenum, this material allows greater refraction and prevents the mirror from scratching.
A laser is a device designed to focus a beam of light at a specific point; It is made up of a pair of mirrors, an active medium that allows light to be amplified (in solid, gaseous or liquid state) and a beam of light or electric current that will give energy to the active medium.
