Laser Lens cleaning tips
• Lens maintenance base is designed to secure a wide range of optics sizes for the cleaning process
• Centricut optical cleaning fluid is a safe, economical alternative to traditional high-purity and reagent-grade solvents
• Cleaning materials suited for all lens cleaning needs; lens paper, polyester swabs, and polyester wipes Lens paper
Recommended for the routine maintenance cleaning of flat lenses.
Recommended for cleaning curved lenses and where a more aggressive cleaning is required (interchangeable with polyester wipes).
Recommended for cleaning CO2 and fiber lenses and windows (interchangeable with polyester swabs and lens paper).
You will need:
• Lens maintenance base (lens holder)
• Optical cleaning fluid
• Air bulb
• Lint-free lens paper
• Latex or rubber gloves
To get started
Using rubber gloves, place the lens in the lens holder and remove all loose contaminants with an air bulb. When contaminants are no longer visible, begin the cleaning process.
Place lens paper over the optic, covering it completely.
Apply a couple drops of lens cleaning fluid to the lens paper (far side of the lens).
Slowly pull the lens paper across the lens so the cleaning fluid comes in contact with the entire lens surface. Finish pulling the paper across so all of the fluid has dried from the lens.
Inspect the surface of the lens for dust and cleaning residue using a flashlight. Examine the lens from different angles. Repeat the process on the other side of the lens.
Place the cleaned lens in the machine quickly to avoid contamination from airborne particles. If spots, pits, or scratches are still noticeable, the lens may need to be replaced
