13 Sep Remote & On-site Thermal Laser Head Repair
Thermal laser heads are the most critical part of CTP devices. The core component of a thermal laser head is the assembly, which includes both laser diodes and lenses. The average lifespan for laser heads varies greatly, but eventually, the power output degrades to the point the laser head becomes unusable.
The cause of most failures occurs from power fluctuations, plate type changes and excessive humidity. In most cases, laser heads can be repaired; a much more affordable option to a replacement head, which can cost as much as nearly $30,000. Proper upkeep and regular preventative maintenance visits [we recommend at least one PM a year] certainly plays an important part in how long CTP laser heads will last.
Don’t trust your CTP head in the hands of just anybody. We have over 10 years of experience in repairing thermal CTP lasers heads with remote diagnostics, walk-through laser removal and re-installation.
