Even the best-maintained laser will eventually need replacement parts. From lenses to dust windows, finding quality parts for a laser can be a hassle. With so many suppliers online it is important to find a source for laser parts that you can trust.

Common Parts for a Laser

Before you set out to look for a laser parts supplier, you should first take stock of the components you will normally need. If you know that your laser set up will require a dependable source of lenses, then you can begin to narrow your search to suppliers that carry the type of lenses you will need.

One of the most commonly needed laser components is a flashlamp. Flash lamps can come in many forms including linear lamps, U-shape, circular, helical, and double helix forms. The ideal solution is determined by the particular application and laser system, but we offer a large assortment of different lamp shapes to meet a diverse set of product specifications.

It is vital that you know what type of flashlamp your laser will require, and ensure that your supplier carries a solution for you. Complete plug-in solutions, lamps, sockets and integrated trigger coils are also available and can be customized to meet any customer need.

Service and Maintenance 

Much like components, you can be fairly certain that at some point you will need to perform routine service and maintenance on any system you own. Also, if you find yourself needing an emergency part, you don’t have time to place an order/request and wait around for it to be fulfilled. It is vital to minimizing down time that you know ahead of time that your supplier has the parts you need or the personnel to help you quickly. It’s important that your supplier is dependable, so look for a supplier with a proven track record of satisfied customers.
