Laser Articulated Arms

Articulated Arm - Alban Light Systems

Manufactured from high quality components and using advanced calibration techniques, our articulated arms have a global reputation for quality, beam accuracy and stability and reliability.

Articulating arms have a number of key advantages.

  • very low power losses
  • no effects of dispersion
  • no coherence length restrictions
  • no bend radius limitations.
  • very low operator forces for precise use as the mass is balanced.
  • easily designed for co-axial beams of differing wavelengths
  • no laser beam to fibre coupling reflected power losses
  • enclosed beam protects the operator
  • beam optics protected from environmental contamination¬†

flexible mechanisms for the delivery of laser energy
