Warranty and Handling Terms:
Evaluation Fee: All laser tubes received by Photovac Laser Corp. are subject to a nominal evaluation fee of $500.00 or $1000.00 (depending upon size) to evaluate the laser tube, optical product, or Radio Frequency (RF) exciter. The evaluation fee covers the laser or optical device’s inspection and evaluation and provides the estimate to repair the device. Suppose the customer elects to repair the laser tube, optical device, or RF product. In that case, your evaluation fee will be credited toward the final invoice less any discounts previously announced and approved in advance by Photovac Laser. Suppose the customer elects not to repair the laser tube, optical product, or RF product; in that case, Photovac will return it. It will charge the evaluation fee to the customer, plus any shipping/handling charges.
Reprocessed Warranty: When a laser tube is reprocessed (regassed), the system is disassembled and inspected. We inspect the partial reflector and high reflector for surface damage. We review the laser tube waveguide for warpage and any cracks or breaks in the laser tube waveguide or cooling jacket. We inspect the anode and cathode electrical condition and connections. We examine the front adjustment mount (if applicable) and the rear adjustment mounts (if appropriate) for any worn adjustment screws or securing nuts and bolts. Upon this review, the laser tube is cleaned, evacuated, leak tested, and recharged with one of several proprietary gas mixtures and re-combination gas catalysts. Our warranty covers the laser tube’s recharging, laboratory alignment, and labor for one full year. If your laser tube product fails due to a gas failure, we will recharge the laser tube and provide our work for a 12-month prorated period to repair the product for the remainder of the warranty period. If the product fails for any other reason, Photovac Laser will contact you with an estimate for the laser tube’s approval and repair.
Remanufacture Warranty: When a laser tube is remanufactured, the system is disassembled and inspected. We inspect the partial reflector and high reflector for surface damage. We review the laser tube waveguide for warpage and any breaks or cracks in the laser waveguide or surrounding cooling jacket. We inspect the anode and cathode electrical condition and connections. We review the front adjustment mount (if applicable) and rear adjustment mount (if applicable) for any worn adjustment screws and bolts. Photovac Laser will replace any parts including optics, electrodes, mounts, glassware, electronics, or any other necessary item to make the laser tube perform to its original or more significant manufacturer power guarantee upon your approval. Upon replacing any parts, we clean, evacuate, leak test, recharge with one of several proprietary gas mixtures and re-combination catalysts and align the system. Suppose a product fails due to the replacement of parts, or the product fails due to a gas failure. In that case, we will repair the product and provide our labor on a 12 month prorated period, and in some cases, 18 months or the remainder of the warranty period.
