Thread: Marks on a laser tube

    Marks on a laser tube


    I've used this forum for a while now and its been very helpful with getting stuff in my workshop running but this is my first time posting! I've just got a new laser cutter and I've noticed the tube has developed marks as seen in the attached photo.

    Should I be concerned? I've not used this sort of tube (CO2) before so I'm not familiar with them and a quick look online only mentions marks being a bad thing!

    Usually just an uneven coating of catalyst on the inside of the resonator core....

    Thanks, any way to tell? Its a brand new tube and obviously didn't come like that so it was worrying to see!

    Just one of those things that happens with lower cost tubes to be honest, all DC tube makes occasionally throw out a won't really affect very much in general
