Endurance company offers a full specter of services and research & development for the diode laser business. It has competences in upgrading and repairing of any types of diode (solid-state) lasers. We replace burned components and run all the necessary tests after the changes we made. Depending on the laser mounts and laser metalwork, сollimators can be made out of aluminum, copper, and brass (0.1mm (100 μm)). Any format (DXF, SVG, STL and others) is acceptable. A high-quality cooling system protects your laser module or laser array from overheating. Endurance develops customer controlling boards based on the CNCC LaserAxe and GRBL 0.9 firmware (sketches). Moreover, our specialists have experience in creating instruments to measure power in the range of 1 μW – 10 MW. Endurance has excellent relations with a lot of US and Russian colleges and universities, therefore, a vast amount of different research projects can be done in partnership with academicians.
We help researchers, academicians, businessmen, hobbyists, and enthusiasts solve different issues in the laser industry.
We know how to:
- Build and produce lasers and laser drivers.
- Create custom lasers with a different wavelength.
- Deal with fiberglass: combine and split laser beams.
- Work with complicated optics.
- Do metalwork for laser machines
- Assemble complicated hardware mechanisms (robotics).
- Make advanced measurements.
We are experts in solid-state (diode) lasers. We have a vast experience in dealing with 405 nm – 808 nm wavelength diodes.
Laser upgrading and a laser repair option.
Endurance has competences in upgrading and repairing of any types of diode (solid-state) lasers. We can replace diodes and electronic components. We are knowledgeable enough to advise you how to improve your laser module if that is necessary.
We replace burnt-out components and run all the necessary tests after the changes we made.
We have a great variety of necessary components in stock and an upgrade or a repair process can be done quickly enough.
If we lack the necessary components we will tell you how long it will take to get them and how much it will cost you.
Laser mounts and laser metalwork
Endurance has an expertise in making different laser mounts and we do complicated laser metalwork.
We deal with a few factories that can
To do nice metalwork we request a scheme and an image of an expected product.
All formats are acceptable (DXF, SVG, STL and others)
If you need to install a laser module into a collimator, we can make a custom design for a laser diode housing.
We are experienced in making collimators for TO3, TO5, TO9, TO18, C-mount types.
Collimators can be made out of aluminum, copper, and brass.
Our accuracy standard is 0.05mm (50 μm).
All types of laser module mounts can be designed and manufactured in any amount.
Endurance has vast expertise and experience in making laser drivers of different.
Most laser drivers require stable current and accurate voltage.
If you have a laser diode/laser array or laser module Endurance can make a laser driver that will meet your requirements. Just send us a detailed wish list.
We can add a TTL controller and a frequency modulator if needed.
Laser pulsing mode (for diode lasers)
Laser cooling system
By way of experimenting while making lasers, Endurance now knows almost everything about an efficient cooling system.
We have a variety of different heatsinks, TEC cooling systems, fans, and different cooling rod copper modules.
Before deploying a solution we make a lot of different tests and temperature measurements.
Independent institutions can be invited for additional tests
If you have a laser diode/laser array or laser module we can develop a customized cooling system using either an air or water cooling and TEC (Thermoelectric Cooler) Peltier module.
Universal heatsink for T-mount and C-mount laser diodes
Combining a few beams together
2 beams in 1
3 beams in 1
4 beams in 1
Laser controlling boards based on the Arduino with the CNCC LaserAxe / GRBL 0.9, 1.1, 3.0 firmware
Endurance develops customer controlling boards based on the CNCC LaserAxe and GRBL 0.9 firmware (sketches).
If you need custom based stepper motors / additional axes and you plan to add more sensors and detectors then we can develop that based on your requirements.
Give us full tech requirements or at least RFP so we can send our proposal.

Parallel registration capabilities
The “Rits822” recorder provides unique possibilities for conducting the parallel recording of the radiation power at various points in the experiment circuit. The upper left figure shows the time dependences of the laser radiation power recorded in 7 sections of the optical spectrum during the eight-second start-up. The lower figure shows, on two-time scales, the readings of receivers recording the time course of the radiation of five simultaneously operating impulse channels of a complex laser installation. Converters that measure the power of laser radiation.
MEASUREMENT OF THE EXPENDITURE OF LASER RADIATION
Soviet standards and relevant practice provided for two definitions of the divergence of the beam.
By intensity: the flat angle at the vertex of the cone of rotation around the optical axis, the average power.
