Universal Laser VLS Desktop 1.5" Lens Kit
Use with the VLS Desktop Laser Series
VLS2.30DT, VLS3.60DT, VLS2.30 and VLS3.50
Not for use with VLS/PLS Platform Series

Universal Laser 1.5 Lens Kit assembly has been designed for very high resolution engraving and etching of extremely small fonts and photos. This lens will give an additional 1/2 (12.7mm) to the table height (Z axis) allowing for taller parts to be processed however because it is the closest lens to the work area, it can have a greater chance of being contaminated due to that proximity to laser processing. The 1.5 tolerance is low and cannot handle much deviation from the focus point. Because of high divergence it will not be a good thick cutting lens on materials thicknesses over 0.2 or 5.08mm. It can be interchanged with any other available lens and is available on all PLS and VLS series systems as well as most older generations of Universal Laser Systems.

What it does:
Universal Laser 1.5 Lens Kit produces a small, focused beam or spot . Depending on the type of material being processed, and the desired effect, the effective spot size produced by this option is about 40% smaller than the 2.0 inch focusing lens allowing for higher details and quality during the engraving and marking process.

Benefits of the 1.5" Lens:
  • High resolution for detailed laser processing
  • Field upgradable on supported systems, 1996 and newer
  • Can be interchanged with other lenses as needed
  • Shorter focal length gives 1/2 (12.7mm) more distance on your Z axis (table height)
  • Thin kerf on thin material cutting applications
Limitations of the 1.5" Lens:
  • Closer to work area, contamination more likely
  • Poor cutting ability for thick materials (No thicker than 0.2 or 5.08mm)
  • Limited focal range tolerance (high divergence)
