Richardson Electronics Expands Product Offering with Premium CO2 Laser Bellows and Water Treatment Kits

LaFox, Illinois – November 11, 2014, Richardson Electronics, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of the highest quality replacement RF tubes since 1947, is now offering water treatment kits and an expanded product line of high quality replacement bellows for use in Trumpf® and Bystronic® lasers. Richardson Electronics will be showcasing these products at the FABTECH 2014 show – Booth B2129.

The water treatment kits are equivalent to the OEM original kits and contain the exact portions of biocide and inhibitors that will keep the water of specific chiller systems clean for 12 months. Designed and manufactured in Europe, Richardson’s laser bellows are made with heat resistant, flame retardant materials and are able to withstand high operating temperatures while providing years of service. Laser bellows from Richardson will keep unwanted particles out of the laser beam and protect machine rails, racks and bearings.

Claudio Schutz, VP and General Manager of the Industrial Services Group for Richardson Electronics, Ltd., noted, “While the sales of fiber and solid state lasers are increasing, there is—and will continue to be—a large installed base of CO2 lasers. By offering more spare parts and consumables, we help our customers stay competitive with their existing technology and allow them to lower their total cost of ownership.”

In addition to its expanded product offering, Richardson Electronics continues to supply the tubes that are used in Trumpf® and other laser systems. The THALES RS3021CJ and RS2048CJC power grid tubes are known for their reliability and performance. Combined with its 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 – Booth B2129 or online at
