Richardson Electronics Expands Service Offering for CO2 Lasers with Driver Stage Repair

LaFox, Illinois – Richardson Electronics, a leading global 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 end stage tubes and consumable products at this year’s FABTECH show – Booth S2018.

Through our global service network, Richardson Electronics now offers remanufactured driver stages that are used in Trumpf® CO2 lasers. Each unit undergoes a thorough 38-point inspection process and is tested and burned in for 24 hours before delivery.

Claudio Schutz, VP and General Manager of the Industrial Services Group for Richardson Electronics, Ltd., noted, “Our ability to offer reliable driver stages is another great example of our engineered solutions. Richardson Electronics has the most extensive global network of sales, service and experience in RF generators, and we are very pleased to share this expertise with our laser customers.”

The Richardson Electronics service team has the knowledge and experience to evaluate the reparability of defective driver stages. We diagnose, test and repair a driver stage at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new part.

New to our product line are vacuum pumps and bellows for additional laser machine models. “By offering more laser spare parts from stock for immediate delivery, we can deliver what our laser users are looking for to remain competitive: OEM-quality parts at an affordable price with minimum downtime”, added Mr. Schutz.

In addition to our expanded service offering, we continue 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. With our expanded portfolio of high quality aftermarket parts, we ensure the lowest cost of ownership to help laser users around the world become more competitive. To complement our products, Richardson Electronics provides installation support and service in select countries. To learn more, visit us at FABTECH – Booth S2018 or online at
