New trimming system targets precision sensor manufacturing

Share this on social media:

US firm Bold Laser Automation has introduced the LFT-500 Series Laser Functional Trimming platform, for the manufacture of precision sensor devices in the medical, aerospace and commercial sectors.

Specifically built to target US-based development groups who need tools for prototyping and pilot production, the platform provides a host of options including customised fixturing and test hardware.

Built for high-precision throughput, the LFT-500 Series is outfitted with three wavelength options, including 1,064nm, 532nm and 355nm, covering from NIR to UV.

When functionally trimming, a particular parameter is continuously measured and compared with the set value. Once the set value is reached, the laser cut stops automatically. Resistance, voltage, current, frequency – almost all output signals can be adjusted to their target value via the LFT-500 Series tool, in conjunction with appropriate measuring equipment.

Bold Laser Automation provides turnkey laser automation systems for trimming, ablation, cutting, and welding. Its team carries over 30 years of valuable design experience across numerous manufacturing fields to provide the most cost-effective solutions and systems that are quality driven.
