Action plans must be in place to avoid any issues occurring in the workplace. It is important that you identify any hazards...

The importance of CO2 Laser Safety Glasses

March 28, 2018 Posted by:

CO2 laser safety glasses are so important when operating lasers, especially in schools and educational institutions. Any place that is open to the public should have some CO2 laser safety goggles on offer, but as a general rule of thumb, any operator of a laser machine should wear them to best protect themselves. The glasses or goggles you choose should also be very comfortable to wear and not too tight, whilst you should always check how protective they are against the laser, and good manufacturers will always explain more about the CO2 and UV protection in their product descriptions. There are now many ultra-lightweight glasses that offer excellent protection, so...

No matter how many members of staff you have at your place of work, those who are using the laser machine should be trained as often as possible. These devices are very easy to handle when you know what you’re doing, but with software constantly being updated, maintenance work required and so many potential health and safety issues, it’s better to be safe than sorry. We recommend you hold training sessions every month so your team know how to use the machines, look after them, maintain them and of course keep themselves safe at the same time. These machines are incredibly dangerous and there have been some horror stores about...

How a Laser is Created

August 16, 2017 Posted by:

Lasers are widely used in manufacturing and fabrication. They are an extremely effective way of cutting, marking and measuring. But how are these laser beams created? To create a laser, the energy level of atoms need to be raised to an excited state. This allows them to release light as they fall back to their original ground state. Once a beam of light is generated, it is then amplified to produce a focal point. It’s at this focal point that the laser cuts or marks the surface of a material. As the atoms move, they create a weak light. As more energy is added this light becomes more and more...
