Laser Tube Aging?

Postby sshwarts » Wed Jul 25, 2018 2:04 pm

My 40W laser tube which has about 85 hours on it (purchased from LO in July 2014), measures 25W on a Mahoney laser power meter. Is this typical as a laser tube ages, the power output goes down (vs just out and out, stopping working)? I'm guessing age is as much a factor as firing time?

Thanks
