Ask the Expert: Building Better Laser Micromachining Systems

Dr. Cliff Jolliffe, Head of Strategic Marketing, Industrial Automation, Physik Instrumente (PI), fields questions about integrating controls for different motion systems and lasers.

Ultrafast laser micromachining offers high accuracy and throughput while minimizing material damage. When paired with piezoelectric or traditional motion stages for workpiece positioning, fixed lasers optimize performance without the complexities tied to the galvo scanners typically used for beam steering. However, integrating controls for different motion systems and the laser can be challenging.
