Synova relocates North American laser micromachining center to New Jersey

April 10, 2017
Laser micromachining sytems maker Synova has relocated its North American Micro-Machining Center operations to Secaucus, NJ.

Laser micromachining sytems maker Synova (Ecublens, Switzerland) has relocated its North American Micro-Machining Center (MMC) operations from Fremont, CA, to Secaucus, NJ. The MMC offers laser machining services such as application trials, single and recurring cutting jobs, and machine demonstrations. The MMC will house two Laser MicroJet systems—the five-axis LCS 50 machine to be used for 3D shaping and machining, and the LCS 300 system for 2D machining of parts up to 300 × 300mm.

All machines incorporate the company's Laser MicroJet water-jet-guided laser technology, which is based on the patented approach of entrapping a cylindrical laser beam within a hair-thin water jet, resulting in parallel walls, tight kerf widths, smooth cut surfaces, and sharp edges. The technique enables the surface to be cooled by the water between laser pulses, thereby minimizing the heat-affected zone and its related defects. The water also cleans the surface, reducing post-machining processing requirements.

The LCS 50-5 has utility in machining small parts, such as those in natural and industrial diamond applications as well as medical micro-parts typically processed with 30 to 70µm kerfs, according to Benjamin Carron, global director of applications at Synova.
