Advanced Laser Shutters

DACO is best-known for its advanced laser shutter devices. These devices are designed to be laser or “beam blockers” for a host of applications.

These units are comprised of solenoid body and the shutter. Any application that requires a rotational motion to block or interrupt a beam is a potential candidate for our Laser Shutter Devices.

Product Classes

We design and manufacture two main product classes of advanced laser shutter devices:

Bi-Stable Shutters — Pulse-driven shutter devices that move and stay at their on/off positions until they receive the reverse pulse to move to the other position.

Spring Shutters — Power-driven shutter devices that only move when power is applied. No power returns the device to the off position.
