    Motorized laser beam expanders MEX series are used to increase the laser beam diameter and adjust divergence. Standard or custom-made beam expanders feature a unique mechanical closed-loop sliding-lens design ensuring high pointing stability and minimal dimensions. These variable magnification (zoom) beam expanders and reducers are designed for the required wavelength and each type of our beam expanders has motorized divergence adjustability.
