Why do you recommend to buy new SLD laser?
Our new lasers based on semiconductor diode design so it is simpler than the original module Shimadzu or Showa and more reliable.
Diode laser modules require less power and have longer life time than other laser modules.
Our modules are professionally engineered and expertly built for high quality laser repair.
What is the estimated resource of your New Lasers?
We estimate the laser lifetime as more than 10 000 hours.
What design of the laser module do you use now?
What is the difference between a DPSS laser module and a Laser Module designed on Semiconductor Laser Diode basis?
Almost all minilabs manufactured in period 2000 – 2010 have DPSS laser modules inside of their laser optical section.
If you want to know more about DPSS lasers you can read Wikipedia here.
DPSS lasers have a quite complicated design, with a plenty different electronic and optical parts inside.
All these parts are for conversion of 808 nm IR laser beam to 1064 nm and then convert it into 532 nm (Green) or 473 nm (blue) beams.
It contains a powerful 808 nm IR diode laser that pumps an Nd:YVO4 laser crystal, that in turn outputs 1064 nm light. This beam doubled inside of a non-linear KTP crystal, resulting in green light at the half-wavelength of 532 nm.
This beam is expanded and infrared-filtered.
And we all know that:
If there is a lot of parts – it raises the risk to have them faulty. So we have so many examples of DPSS lasers failure (noise, blur, etc.).
But science does not stand still…
There is no need to convert 808 nm into 532 nm or 473 nm anymore.
Now we have all parts inside of small Semiconductor Laser Diode without any intermediate conversions…
They can emit 520-530 nm (Green) beam or 455-460 nm (Blue) beam without all disadvantages of DPSS laser.
Lasers produced on laser diode basis have low power consumption with a high performance.
They work at low currents and it has a longer lifetime.
Please look at the simplified schematic of a laser diode below:
What do you do to upgrade the DPSS module to SLD version?
We remove all DPSS components and replace them with SLD components.
Here is a Shimadzu upgraded laser module without a top cover.
If you look at the images below you will see that design of our module is simple.
SLD module consists of:
1. Semiconductor Laser Diode 460nm or 525nm.
Output diode is packaged in a power efficient design that ensures the lowest optical noise output with an incredibly stable beam.
The package design provides the highest level of protection available today in a laser module.
2. Diode Control PCB.
Design innovation and high-performance drive electronics combined to give unparalleled power stability and beam pointing stability over time and temperature.
Low noise drive electronics produce an optical output with exceptionally low optical noise.
The minilablaser.com electronics design includes many revolutionary changes in laser module control.
3. Output Optical Unit
There is only one high-quality glass lens inside and this factor significantly reduces the risk to have the optics fogged, shifted or damaged during the longtime emission.
4. Peltier Cooling Module (TEC)
Do I need to return the original Laser Driver and module if I buy New Laser Module Kit from you?
We do not require to return any defective parts to us in this case.
If you buy our New Laser Module Kit you can leave all the original parts such as laser module at your possession.
Moreover if you want to have your old defective laser module upgraded to SLD level – we will make it for you with a good discount.
What models of minilabs can use your new laser module?
If you have AGFA, Durst or Imetto minilabs equipped with a solid state laser (SSL) optical section – you also can use it.
Can you repair the original laser module?
We upgrade the original laser module Shimadzu or Showa from DPSS to SLD version and you will have a fully new laser module after our upgrade.
Actually, we can repair any laser of any color for any laboratory Noritsu, Fujifilm, Agfa (SSL), Polielettronica and Durst.
If you need a price, please send your inquiry here to have a quotation.
Below is the list of minilabs we can make repair of lasers for:
Noritsu (all QSS models & LPS 24 PRO).
Fujfilm Frontier 330/340/350/370/390/355/375/500/550/570 & all LP7*** series
Agfa Dlab 2 Plus Select, NetLab 2 and NetLab 2 plus
Can you repair a gas laser?
Yes we can.
Since 2018 we offer our customers new service: gas laser repair.
We repair all gas lasers for all any Agfa D-lab series and Durst minilabs with guaranteed to meet or exceed original manufacturer’s specification.
Please send us your inquiry to receive more information about gas laser repair service.
Can I use your new laser module with an original laser module in one laser unit? Are they fully compatible? Does there any conflict exist?
There is no conflicts at all…
They are fully compatible and you can use it together side by side.
Laboratory will work perfectly.
Hundreds and hundreds of sold units prove it.
Can I use your SLD laser module with my original laser driver? Will it work?
During upgrade of Shimadzu or Showa laser module from DPSS to SLD we tune it for the certain laser driver type and adjust for perfect performance as well.
SLD module of type A1 is semi-universal and can work with any original laser driver of type A1 (J391160 or J390973).
Can you send to us your engineer to train our personnel how to install and adjust your New Lasers?
Please send to us your inquiry and we will discuss all details of training courses by e-mail.
Can you train our personnel how to repair optical units and sell know-how?
Moreover it is not possible to teach someone to fix a laser because each laser repair differs from each other.
On the other side if you buy the SLD Laser Module you will get all necessary information how to install and adjust our product in our Installation Manual.
Where can I buy the New Laser Module and who will install it?
The main office, the research center and production line are in Russia.
