Warranty for Laser and Consumables

All American Laser Enterprises machines are guaranteed to the original purchaser, at the original place of shipment, for one full year from date of installation, but no longer than thirteen (13) months from date of completion of build at our facility. Any part that fails through normal use will be replaced free of charge during this period by a qualified field engineer.  Travel and Living expenses will be invoiced as incurred. A Purchase Order will be required for each warranty and/or service call.

Internal laser optics and external beam delivery optics are warranted for a period of thirty (30) days from date of installation not to exceed ninety (90) days from date of shipment from source manufacturer.

All consumable items are specifically excluded from this warranty.

Systems that are used to process metals or other highly reflective materials must have a back reflection optical isolator (ATFR) fitted in the laser or beam path. Failure to fit such a device may result in beam delivery optical damage or laser cavity failure.  Damage as a result of back reflection will void this warranty.  Use of laser gas not supplied by source manufacturer will void warranty.

Consumable items are not covered under this warranty. (Please refer to this letter for detailed information regarding the warranty of the equipment.) Any deviation from this policy must be agreed to by both parties in writing to alter it.

American Laser Enterprises LLC will not be held responsible for any claims of any kind based on down time, overhead, labor, damage to machinery, loss of production, or profit through the use of our equipment. All equipment is to be operated and maintained by adequately trained personnel, as well.

 

JIC, NEMA & OSHA Compliance

All American Laser Enterprises LLC machines are designed to meet or exceed the standards of the Regulatory Agencies. Provisions are made and no machine can be released for shipment unless it complies with the standards specified and as we interpret them to be required. To do otherwise will require a letter from the user (customer), stating they will accept full responsibility for non-compliance, as a result of a difference in interpretation of these rules. This letter must be signed by an officer of that corporation.
