¡¡¡¡Nowadays, CO2 laser tube factories spring up like mushrooms, many new manufacturers are founded every year, but price from different factories are quite different. Thus which factors will decide a laser tube¡¯s price? We Shanghai Puri Laser Technology Co.,Ltd would like to explain as follows:
¡¡¡¡1.The cost of laser tube itself: it contains the cost of glass tube, the mirrors and the gas. Among these, averagely the biggest cost is mirror. The mirror can be made from different materials, such as Ge, or ZnSe. Generally ZnSe is better, it is more expensive but with better effect. As for ZnSe mirror, it also has two kinds: made in China and imported. The imported mirror is much more expensive than Chinese mirrors. However other materials also have advantages and disadvantages,such as discharge tube which has two kinds as well: made in China and imported. Imported discharge tube is more expensive, but its linear accuracy, thickness¡¯ tolerance and raw materials is better.
¡¡¡¡2.The cost of management: along with the increasing of the wage, the cost of management will greatly affect laser tube¡¯s price. The management cost has a pretty big difference according to different manufacturers. One certain scale company have a complete set of departments, such as purchasing dept, quality control dept, etc. Small companies or private business don¡¯t have complete full facilities, thus the cost is lower. However, different team, different human structure will affect laser tube¡¯s quality and stability.
¡¡¡¡ 3.Other cost: it includes rent, water and electricity fee, office consumables. It is no doubt that these will affect laser tube¡¯s price. At the same time, it will affect its quality as well. For example: through improving the production environment, it will help enhance the quality, but cost will rise.
¡¡¡¡4.Production capability: Recently different manufacturer of CO2 laser tube has different production capability. Some can produce from the firing glass tube and lamp, some must purchase half-finished product from others. Some max the gases with their own formula, some must rely on supplying of ready mixed gases from other plants. However, the former has lower cost under the condition of mass quantity.
¡¡¡¡5.The level and quality of service: to a large extent, the level and quality of service will affect laser tube¡¯s price. After all laser tube is glass product besides it is handmade article, inevitably it has unqualified percent as well as human error in operation. Thus service is very quite important. A company with good service will provide with changing, returning, and repairing.All these will raise the cost.
¡¡¡¡To sum up, for CO2 laser tube, neither the price lower the better, nor the higher the better.
It is better to observe the complete set of facilities and capability, the service level reasonably, then to compare price. Shanghai Puri Laser Technology Co.,Ltd sincerely welcome distributors, partners to our factory, we¡¯ll modestly listen to your comments and suggestions.¡¡¡¡
