Outperforming Conventional Sealed CO2 Lasers

Iradion’s Patented
CERAMICORE® Laser Technology

Designed for Superior Performance and Ultimate Beam Stability

The CERAMICORE® Laser Innovation

The patented CERAMICORE® laser technology provides a non-reactive ceramic container for the laser gas mixture. The externally mounted metal electrodes excite the laser gas remotely. This prevents contamination and preserves the purity and integrity of the gas and internal optics.

Comparison of CERAMICORE® and conventional CO2 Laser tubes

CERAMICORE® versus Conventional CO2 Lasers

Conventional CO2 lasers use glass or metal tube designs with internal metal components. These designs enclose the laser gas mixture of carbon dioxide, helium and nitrogen with metal electrodes and other components, such as a metal containment tube and mirror mounts.

Inside the tube, the laser gas is energized by the electrodes. Over time, these internal metal electrodes shed atoms that degrade the laser gas. This contaminates the internal optics and reduces laser power and beam stability.

In contrast, the ceramic core inside a CERAMICORE® laser is sealed without any components on the inside and the electrodes are mounted on the outside of the resonator body. This way, the laser gas is excited from the outside and there are no interior metal surfaces that cause a reaction and contamination.

Benefits

CERAMICORE® Lasers Set New Gold Standards

Iradion sets a new gold standard for the CO2 laser industry with our CERAMICORE® laser technology that does not show any gas degradation. In addition, the thermal expansion of ceramic is 70% less than that of aluminum used in metal tube lasers. As a result, the patented CERAMICORE® laser design minimizes possible changes to internal optical alignments ensuring superior beam quality and stability over time.

The low thermal expansion of the ceramic enhances performance and supports long-term stability. The use of 30% fewer parts compared to typical CO2 models reduces the potential for component failure. Improve productivity by a factor of 2 with the fastest rise and fall times in the CO2 laser industry.
