    UV micro scanner for precise surface processing

    September 06, 2021

    The shorter wavelength offers tighter focusing and increased absorption that enables high precision structuring. The prototype UV micro scanner achieves excellent quality and repeatability for surface structuring with feature sizes down to 400 nm.

    Multibeam parallel processing

    July 16, 2021

    One of the key technologies to increase productivity of laser micromachining and maintain the high level of surface quality is multibeam processing. The multibeam technology has already found its way into industrial production for consumer electronics or medical products. Here, the generation of flexible surface structures for embossing tools or micro-drillings for filter applications with feature sizes down to 1 µm have been demonstrated.
