RUGBY, England, Dec. 30, 2010 — JK Lasers has announced the Motorized Zoom Beam Expanding Telescope (ZBET) for use with the newly enhanced JK604D drilling laser. The ZBET has been designed to rapidly and remotely change the laser beam size and focus position using the integrated LaserView software, which is supplied with all of the company’s Nd:YAG lasers. The magnification of the laser can be continuously driven from one to four times in <5 s, which can considerably reduce setup times and enhance in-process flexibility. The new product also has very low beam wander, while maintaining diffraction-limited performance across the entire expansion range. The telescope has optics that have been optimized for high peak power operation.
