• RPP INC. Sends Great News about Photovac Laser Service Capabilities


    ” Good news.  The new PC board seems to have solved all the problems.  The machine is working great.  I did have a couple of Power Failures but I replaced the 5VDC power supply and the machine has not missed a lick since then.  The old control power supply would fluctuate between 4.3 volts and go up to about 5.5.  I was told by Beam, several years ago, that the voltage needed to be constant between 4.9 and 5.1.  I did not want to damage the new PC board so I replaced the old power supply with the same type only it is a medically qualified unit vs. the standard industrial unit supplied with the machine originally.  The supplies are the same but everything is held to tighter tolerances.  You did a great job and in the future should any issues come up I will contact you first before Coherent. Obviously the new Coherent K250 laser tube and RF supply that Photovac repaired works flawlessly”

    Also FYI.  Nate Peterson, from Coherent, replaced the laser tube and RF unit on the new machine and it is up and running also.  I ask him about the noise the old machine makes vs. the new machine which is quite.  He showed me, on the new machine, where you can change the frequency that the machine uses to cut.  The old machine did not have this feature.  He changed the frequency, on the new machine, to show me and sure enough it sounded different.  Evidently the default frequency on the old machine is the issue.  Since it cuts fine I am not going to attempt to make any change. Your diagnosis on the tube and RF on this unit was spot on Chris.

    Again great job! ”

    Best regards,

  • Beam Dynamics Updated: 10/03/2014

    Beam_Dynamic_LMC 5000 Coherent Incorporated, Santa Clara, California has officially announced the service and support discontinuation of the Beam Dynamics LMC 5000 laser cutter. Coherent’s customers are receiving letters this month in the effort to address the service discontinuation by years end.

    “Photovac Laser is well positioned to continue service on the LMC series”, says Photovac Laser President and CEO Christopher Zelich. ” We continue to service both the RF amplifiers and K150, K250 and K500 laser tube OEM packages for the foreseeable future, says Zelich.

  • Considering Purchasing a New Laser ?

    …Customers ask me all the time what laser should I buy for my application. My suggestions are to do an in depth comparative between each manufactures model before your purchase. Not only considering cost, power output, pulsing characteristics, peak energy delivery, beam propagation, but also accessories like power supplies and chillers. These can quickly add up to $1000’s of additional dollars. Manufactures must keep selling lasers to keep the doors open. Always request ( demand ) you also receive a “complete” service manual. Make sure it has Schematics of Electronic Boards, Drawings and parts lists. Companies like Coherent Lasers Inc. have multiple layers of service software to access troubleshooting and failure codes. Always make sure these items are in “writing” and part of any purchase order. If they don’t provide it, go elsewhere! Other laser companies may not offer such materials either, If they don’t, keep looking around for a manufacture that will. Your dollars have great leverage and strength in this market place. Consider working with a associate or other company when you can negotiate for better pricing on multiple laser purchases… Manufactures must comply with FDA regulations as part of their 1040.10 CERTIFICATION….

    Photovac Laser has performed comparative pricing for customers for years. For a small fee we can assist you in the best way to get the most out of your laser purchase. Just call for details @ 614.875.3300. Sincerely, Christopher Zelich, President CEO
