Access Laser Company was founded in 1999 to create innovative solutions in RF excited CO2 lasers. Over the past 13 years, starting from ultra low power and low threshold lasers we have developed hundreds of products from 100mw to 100 watt, peak power as high as 1 kw. Our lasers feature power and frequency stabilization, wavelength tunable, super pulse, portable, battery operation, and many other unique characteristics that have never existed in CO2 lasers before.
Even in today’s advancement of fiber lasers and other solid state lasers, the CO2 laser still shines with its distinctive wavelength, superior material interaction, low cost and high reliability. Access Laser Company has collaborated with experts in a wide variety of fields such as biotechnology, gas sensing, micro-machining, military and security, and medical diagnostics, and has developed a broad portfolio of products and option for many applications where CO2 lasers poses with unparalleled advantage.
Our lasers have been shipped to many countries all over the world with the reputation of being innovative, reliable and affordable. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and provide new features to our customers. The engineers at Access Laser Company have diversified expertise in such areas as optics, software and hardware control, systems integration, and thermal mechanical design to name a few, and enjoy optimizing solutions for even the most complicated situations. The modularized design of our lasers allows for rapidly modification to meet the unique challenges of each application.
