The CO2 Optics Group of Ophir Optronics Ltd. has introduced EZ-Pack packaging for industrial laser optics.
The packaging is composed of polyethylene terephthalate, a recyclable plastic widely used in the beverage industry. The lens practically "floats" within its enclosure, eliminating the need for wrapping paper and a plastic bag.
No material comes in contact with the optical surfaces, so the optics do not have to be cleaned before mounting. Every unit is vacuum-sealed to prevent humidity.
The packaging is available for standard 1.5-in.-dia. laser lenses.
