    Default FS: CuBr laser - add some 445nm for a MONSTER!

    My 10w Aesculap Meditec ProYellow CuBr laser is up for grabs along with some 10mm aperture EMS4000 wagglers

    Just add a heap of cheap 445nm.. say 6-10W to make a nice 16-20W h-u-g-e monster of an outdoor or large indoor multicolour display system!

    I'll even help the new owner put together said 445nm rig, either machining the hardware or full module assembly, all for reasonable cost, well.. depending on the laser sale price

    And don't anyone dare mention running the figures through f***ing Chroma...

    The laser is in great shape with low tube hours and running happy as is, but this needs a bit of work to get it to a turnkey display system.
    The redundant launcher stuff has been removed and an optical deck installed, the original colour box needs to be removed or re-located, scanners, colour change etc installed and an output window made in the case etc etc.. so it needs fabrication and wiring etc. Basically it's a medical CuBr with a few hours work done towards conversion to a laser show system.

    Item 1:
    The laser/PSU with an optical platform fitted at the business end of the tube (all fits snugly inside the original cover) and a collimator. Also included with the laser are 3x STP8 actuators with arms and some dichroic filters to split the beam into green and yellow.
    This 10W laser was shown producing 6W of green and over 5W of yellow before the light meter assy was removed, I think this was probably fairly accurate as it boots my 10W thermal meter off the scale. It produces 511nm (green) and 578nm (yellow) lines, around a 10mm/4mR beam after the collimator, barely used with less than 70hrs tube runtime on the clock, optical deck is 120x280mm, runs off a 240V/13A single plug! AND is fan/air cooled. Easy peasy punchy power
    I would like to get 1,400 GBP (or near offer) for the laser, please PM if interested.

    Item 2:
    A set of Eye Magic EMS4000 X/Y scanners with large 10mm aperture mirrors, scan up to 24k at low angles complete with mounts, drivers, cables and power supplies, been run at small angles for just a few hours.
    Superb scanners for big beams..
    I would like to get around 700 GBP (or near offer) for the scanners, please PM if interested.

    Collection preferred but delivery is possible (depending on distance) at the buyers expense.


    Disclaimer:
    Pulsed laser, very powerful, dangerous to skin and immensely destructive to eyeballs, competent/experienced laser people only please.
    Owner assumes all responsibility for the safe use of this laser at all times.

    I wonder if we can build a HeNe that's big enough to keep up!

    I can throw in a nice 2mW HeNe

    Seriously.. with 10mm aperture galvos a 60 diode red LOC array could be accommodated, no PBS required either would >12W of 660nm do ya?

    Adding a big red and blue could make this a >30W RGBY.. shit I think I'm talking myself out of selling this CuBr

    Could get BGYW if you just added some 445 - that would look nice even without the red.

    No problems, I know how the 300 mW V fold henes were made and have dimensioned drawings some place.
    They have a elliptical beam that is 1/5 the divergence of the blues, but about the same starting size.

    are the scanners still available?

    as much as I would LOVE to have this laser shipping would be cost prohibitive

    I do have them but would rather sell them either with or after the CuBr is sold, sorry.. should've made that more clear.

    The CuBr (either with or without the 10mm EMS galvos) is still available if anyone is interested? offers?
    Collection only or delivery can be arranged to the UK or north Europe, not keen on stripping and shipping this thing overseas TBH, sorry.

    Shit this reminds me I was supposed to do some testing for someone.. sorry J

    Hmm....
    I might regret this

    Interested; but we'll see how things are after the student loan has arrived

    How much and where can you get replacement tube from or do they last a few thousand hours?
    What's the warmup/cooldown time like...

    Warm up and cool down time is a bit of a killer with them Dan. around 10mins warm up but over an hour cool down. You have to do it too or you lower the tube life dramatically.

    All that light from a 13A 230v socket though, you gotta remember that bit - it's important

    Where can I get a 'student loan' from
