Event Description

During a regular repair visit, the field service engineer opened the laser head containment cover and found one of the cables was burning. He closed the cover and the fire was extinguished.

Manufacturer Narrative

The fire was caused by the improper mounting of the high voltage cable to the laserhead during a previous field service.
