Laser Micromachining Ltd. (LML) Denbighshire, UK, has recently purchased a TX6400 fully integrated laser machining center from OpTek Systems Ltd., Abingdon, UK, sister company to OpTek Systems Inc., Greenville SC, USA. LML was looking to enhance its high quality laser manufacturing capabilities.

LML is accredited with internationally recognized standards of quality in the delivery of laser controlled manufacturing services. The company also operates the UK's national Centre of Excellence for laser micromachining.

The OpTek tool is to be used in the development of precision laser microfabrication processes and the provision of contract manufacturing services through to medium volumes. Application areas include microelectronics, medical, biotechnology, photonics and precision engineering.

"This purchase is a key aspect of our ongoing expansion and enhances our ability to support wide ranging and diverse customer base in the area of laser micromachining," said Nadeem Rizvi, GM of LML.

"LML had a choice of suppliers and we are very pleased they selected OpTek, this is great endorsement and we look forward to many years of productive collaboration," said Mike Osborne, technical director of OpTek Systems.

OpTek Systems designs and manufactures production ready precision laser machining systems incorporating automated part handling and integrated inspection.
