Ophir Optronics’ CO2 Optics Group Introduces EZ-Pack

The First Floating-Lens, Vacuum-Sealed Packaging For Industrial Laser Optics

Press Release

Ophir EZ-Pack

Environmentally-friendly packaging minimizes contact with optical surfaces and maximizes shelf-life
Jerusalem, Israel, 25 May 2008 – Ophir Optronics Ltd., a global leader in precision IR optics components and laser measurement equipment, announced today that its CO2 Optics Group has unveiled EZ-Pack, the most advanced form of packaging for industrial laser optics.

Composed of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), a recyclable plastic widely used in the beverage industry, EZ-Pack is both environmentally-friendly and durable. Due to EZ-Pack’s innovative design, the lens practically “floats” within its enclosure, eliminating the need for wrapping paper and a plastic bag. Because no material comes in contact with the optical surfaces, there is no potentially dirt of loose fibers to contend and no cleaning is required prior to mounting. Every unit is vacuum-sealed to prevent humidity and extend the lens' shelf-life.

EZ-Pack is now available for standard 1.5-inch diameter laser lenses. Future versions of the product are being planned for other lenses and mirrors sizes.

“Proper packaging, shipment and storage of laser optics can greatly extend shelf-life,” explained Mr. Yehiel Plaut, Sales and Marketing Manager for Ophir Optronics' CO2 Optics Group. “With EZ-Pack, lenses arrive ready-to-use. Its modular, stackable design enables easy re-packing and re-storing.”
