SLA-250 Laser replacement

Date: Mon Sep 29 1997 - 21:04:18 EEST

     Does anyone know if there are any other lasers for the SLA-250 ?
     The 40 mW Omnichrome unit that we have seems to last about 2000 hrs.
     At that time it starts loosing power rapidly (less than 25 mW) and the
     build time suffers greatly. The remelt process helps but it never
     returns to the original 32 - 36 mW.
     I have heard of a 70 mW (!!!!!?????) Liconix but how reliable is it,
     how dependable is it?, price, service etc.?
     Any help would be appreciated
