Abssac has recently supplied a pancake-shaped compression spring for mounting an adjustable mirror in a high-power laser machining application.
Utilising its rare ability to machine springs from solid material, Abssac has recently supplied a pancake-shaped compression spring 50mm in diameter but only 5mm in height. The spring holds a bonded ultra-thin reflective mirror on its top surface and is used in a high-power industrial laser machining application. High-strength aluminium was used for the spring because of its heat transfer characteristics and low cost.
Incorporating the unique flexible element into the one-piece design allows the mirror's angle of incidence to be easily altered while maintaining its position, rigidity and focus.
