LaserDock Magnetic Docking Station
About the PLH3D-6W LaserDock Magnetic Docking Station
- Protects the laser head from contamination, which can affect its lifetime
- Facilitates quick removal when different tools are used on the same machine
- Neodymium magnetic inserts ensure easy mounting as well as stable and repeatable alignment
- Enables electronic connection via 5 gold plated contacts
This product allows the laser head to be protected from contamination from dust or metal particles, as well as oils. These can accumulate on the lens surface, fan motor, air channels, as well as the body of the unit, even if the laser head is turned off. The presence of such contaminants can require maintenance or shorten the lifetime of the module. The docking station solves this problem and allows the laser head to be put aside while not in use.
A machined Aluminium cover with magnetic inserts is additionally included to allow the docking station to be kept clean at the electronic contacts and mechanical surfaces that interface with the laser head. A small amount of compressed air or a brush may be used to remove any dust before connecting the laser head to the docking station.
This unit ships with the necessary mounting screws (2x each of M3 x 10, M3 x 14, and M4 x 10) for connecting to the laser head. Assembly takes a few minutes.
