Femtosecond laser micromachining system

April 12, 2016
The MicroMachine – USP III ultrafast laser micromachining workstation features a 20W femtosecond laser with IR, green, and UV wavelengths.

PhotoMachining (Pelham, NH) has introduced its MicroMachine – USP III ultrafast laser micromachining workstation, which features a 20W femtosecond laser with infrared (IR), green, and ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths and adjustable pulse duration from 290fs to 10ps.

The system's beam delivery system includes two galvo scanning heads, one for IR and green and the second dedicated to UV. An optional spindle stage can also be integrated into the system for manufacturing stents, catheters, and other tubular components. The company's LaserSoft program coordinates wavelength selection, stage movement, and optical inspection, among other functions.

Although designed for advanced medical device manufacturing, the system suits any industry researching ways of using lasers in micro manufacturing. Once the laser processing parameters are determined, this industrial hardened system can migrate directly into a production environment.
