First test of the new optical module with 8 flexible multibeams, boosting process performance more than a factor of 4 already!
In the next months, 7 identical optical modules will follow to complete the 64 flexible multibeam tool. The demonstrator machine is equipped with a 1 kW ultra short pulsed laser and designed to significantly increase productivity of laser microstructuring.
