Richardson Electronics Expands Product Offering with Driver Stage Repair and Premium CO2 Laser Bellows

LaFox, Illinois – Richardson Electronics, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of the highest quality replacement RF tubes since 1947, is now offering driver stage repair and exchange for industrial CO2 laser systems. Richardson Electronics will be showcasing high quality replacement bellows and consumable products at the FABTECH Canada show – Booth 147. Stop by our booth to see our bellows in motion!

Designed and manufactured in Europe, our laser bellows are made with heat resistant, flame retardant materials and are able to withstand high operating temperatures while providing years of service. Our tight fitting laser bellows keep unwanted particles out of the laser beam and protect machine rails, racks and bearings to keep your laser machine running smoothly.

Claudio Schutz, VP and General Manager of the Industrial Services Group for Richardson Electronics, Ltd., noted, “After careful selection of an experienced European manufacturer and strict adherence to our quality assurance processes, I am excited to bring this tested product to market to help our laser customers reduce their cost of operation. Bellows and other parts for additional machine models will be available throughout the year.”

In addition to an expanded product offering, Richardson Electronics continues to supply the tubes that are used in Trumpf® and other laser systems. The reliability and performance of THALES RS3021CJ and RS2048CJC are of the highest quality and competitively priced. Combined with our expanded portfolio of high quality aftermarket parts, Richardson reduces the cost of ownership to help laser users around the world become more competitive. To complement its products, Richardson Electronics provides installation support and service in select countries. To learn more, visit us at FABTECH Canada – Booth 147 or online at
