I have a Coherent GEM 50 watt laser tube that I believe has a RF problem. Tube will put out 80 watts intermittently.
Coherent does not support repair of this tube any longer and neither does Epilog.
I have talked to Photovac and they want a $525 evaluation fee and they estimate $6100 to repair RF system and recharge the tube.
Evergreen laser is estimating $3650 total; $2150 for recharge and $1500 for RF repair but the RF repair cost is a guess until they look at it.
Laser Innovations is estimating 4 weeks before they can even evaluate it and won't give an estimate until they look at it.
Does anyone have any experience with these companies or have another source for diagnosing and repairing this tube?
