Flat Spring aids laser application

Having the unique capability to machine a spring from a solid piece of material Abssac has recently supplied a classic example of is capability.  A pancake shaped compression spring 50mm in diameter but only 5mm in height has been produced to hold an ultra thin reflective mirror on its top surface, in a high wattage industrial laser machining application. High strength aluminium material was used because of its heat transfer characteristics and low cost.  By incorporating the unique flexible element into the one piece design allows the easy alteration of the mirrors angle of incidence, whilst maintaining the mirrors position, rigidity and focus.
