DC Excitation vs. RF Excitation
PRC's DC excited design obliterates the argument that RF lasers require less maintenance. Our proprietary DC electrodes do not erode in the gas stream like some others. For added protection our gas stream flows away from - not towards - the optics.

In addition, our lasers don't require costly RF tubes and they don't suffer from corrosion related water leaks.

 

Turbine Compressor:

PRC's patented TURBOFLOW® compressor is an oil-free, low-speed turbine designed specifically for use in industrial lasers. Elimination of the oil bath and gear boxes associated with many fast flow lasers helps PRC lasers provide the industry's longest optic lifetime, and allows our resonator electrodes and glass to last the life of the laser.

Permanently lubricated ceramic bearings, and an absence of rotating shaft seals ensure the turbine itself a long service life with virtually no maintenance.


Touch Screen Status, Diagnostic & Control Panel


PRC's new touch screen status, control and diagnostic panel features improved laser status information, automated testing routines, built in diagnostics plus power and pulsing control for basic material processing applications.

PRC's Touch Screen Emulator Software offers all the same displays and functionality on a Windows™ based CNC or PC.


Operating Modes:
PRC Lasers offer three distinct pulse modes in addition to Continuous Wave. The different pulse modes can provide processing advantages when piercing, cutting or welding various materials. The ultra-fast response of our high-voltage section provides the sharpest pulsing wave forms available.

 

 

Optical Configurations:
Every laser design has a unique optical cavity that provides a different power distribution within the laser beam it generates. This power distribution is known as the laser's "Beam Mode".

Our product line offers three different beam modes of selectable diameters and propagations.

TEM 00 Mode
(Gaussian Beam)
1000-3000 Watts
"D" Mode
(Dimodal Beam)
1000-5000 Watts
"Q" Mode
(Quadramodal Beam)
2500-8000 Watts

Different modes may provide advantages for certain applications. For example a TEM 00 mode laser will provide deeper penetration welding with a thinner weld bead, while a D mode would provide a slightly wider weld bead. Contact a PRC applications expert to determine which mode and power level is best for your application.
