CO2 RF Laser Powers

CO2 LaserTubes and Powers

We can offer a range of laser powers and types of laser to suit your requirements.

We currently offer DC (CO2) lasers, which are glass laser tubes, and Rofin RF (CO2) laser tubes which are metal. Please see the table lower down in this page for a direct comparison.


About RF (CO2) Laser Powers

RF laser powers offer a number of advantages, including;

  • 24 months warranty (your laser machine warranty is also upgraded to 24 months free of charge!)
  • More than 25,000 hours of use*
  • Powers ranging from 100W to 400W
  • A sharper (smaller) dot size, to give you a finer cut which is particularly helpful for very fine work (i.e. scoring lines on an architectural model).
  • Faster cutting speeds than using the same watts DC laser power.
  • A straighter cross-section than DC laser powers.
  • A finer kerf (amount of material removed by the laser cutting process), giving you higher accuracy with many materials

* Laser tube life will depend on the power of the laser tube, the materials being processed, and the environmental conditions in which the laser is operating.


All of our CTR laser machines now come with an optional upgrade to RF laser powers, and if you want to change to RF in the future, upgrade paths are available. If you already have a CTR laser machine, you can upgrade to an RF laser power - please contact our sales team for more details.
