Over the years one of the most often found problems with user's lasers is dirty optics. Laser Optics should be cleaned daily if not more often according to the type of materials you are laser engraving. We have had users call us about there lasers loosing power, only to find out their optics have not been cleaned in weeks and in several cases never. Dust deposited on the mirror (s) leads to power drop and poor output quality. Moreover, there is a greater chance for optical lenses to be damaged when they are covered with dust. This is because dust particles on the surface of the mirror get burnt by the laser, and this causes damage to the coating on the mirror.
LaserSketch has developed the below LaserGrade Optics Cleaning Kit to resolve these problems. These are the tools that LaserSketch uses to keep their optics is top conditions. A dirty laser optical lens can be destroyed by having a slight film on it, reducing the laser beam transmission though the lens. As the laser beams hits the dirty film, the laser beam will cause the dirty film to heat, there-by heating the lens destroying the special coating on the lens that provides for the laser beam to transverse through the lens.
