Laser Blocking Shutters

We design custom miniature rotary solenoid assemblies for laser blocking shutters, safety shutters, ND (neutral density) filter actuators, and front surface mirror positioning. Our Optical Beam Shutters use a rotary, electro-mechanical actuator to provide inherent “fail-safe” operation.
