altThe MirusTM diode pumped solid-state laser system from Northrop Grumman Space Cutting Edge Optronics (St. Charles, MO) is available with 450 watts of output power. It features an RS 232/485 interface, an electronic shutter, linear PI curve, and an internal flow switch in the laser head. It has been environmentally tested to operate at a temperature range of 15° to 35° C and can be stored at a temperature range of -20°C to 60°C. Its filtered water-cooling system means there is no need for deionization. The Mirus laser is suitable for industrial and manufacturing applications including marking, micromachining and welding, percussion drilling, cutting, scribing, and ablation.
