The lens mount adapters are designed to attach to the Laser Lab OEM lens mount in laser cutting systems which employ 1.5" diameter focusing lenses. These adapters can be used interchangeably with either 5.0" or 7.5" focal lengths.
ICL's Laser Lab lens mount adapter enables users of Laser Lab cutting systems which employ 1.5" diameter lenses to use Lens Savers® under high pressure. The adapter attaches to the OEM Laser Lab lens mount by means of an interface which replaces the threaded retaining ring in the OEM lens mount. An "O" ring is mounted on the external circumference of a cylindrical connector assembly which extends from the interface. The portion of the adapter which contains the Lens Saver® window simply snaps on over the "O" ring.
The adapter provides a holder for the Lens Savers® window which is easily removed simply by pulling it off of the "O" ring on the connector assembly. Lens Savers® window can be removed without disturbing the focusing lens. The adapter also allows the assist gas pressure to pass into a cavity between the Lens Saver® window and the lens, which results in the pressure on both sides of the window being equalized. ICL's patent pending pressure equalization method prevents the Lens Savers® window from breaking by providing an environment in which the pressure around the window is equalized.
