Control Micro Systems expands industrial laser applications lab capabilities

Jan. 21, 2016
Control Micro Systems expanded its industrial laser applications lab to include shorter pulse widths and higher peak power, among others.

Control Micro Systems (Orlando, FL) recently expanded the capabilities of its industrial laser applications lab to include shorter pulse widths, higher peak power, more wavelengths, and more diversified lasers. The applications lab develops laser solutions for a wide variety of marking, welding, cutting, drilling, and material ablation applications.

Successful laser processes include pharmaceutical tablet processing, thin-film conformal coating removal, semiconductor wafer processing, and plastics welding, including breakthrough clear-on-clear welding without the use of additives. The lab has extensive expertise in plastics marking, UID compliance, and medical device marking for traceability.

The recent addition of a new femtosecond laser station develops emerging short pulsewidth material processing applications such as glass cutting and micromachining. The company has also expanded the lab capabilities to include a CO2 laser with power up to 500W, a ytterbium fiber laser with up to 3kW peak power, and a diverse range of pulsed solid-state lasers. A broad range of materials can be addressed with laser wavelengths ranging from the far-infrared (10,640nm) through 2µm and the visible spectrum to the UV (355 and 266nm). Lab services are offered at no charge to qualified prospective users of the company's laser material processing systems.
