Powering up the Pulse

After the international laser technology congress AKL, in Aachen in May, Matthew Dale learned that dramatic increases in power are on the horizon for ultrafast lasers

Making a clean break

Greg Blackman looks at the state of adoption of ultrashort pulse lasers in consumer electronics production

Modern ultra-short-pulse (USP) laser are enablers for the miniaturization of products or components in several sectors. This includes: Automotive, Aerospace, Textiles, Medical technology, Precision engineering etc.

In these markets typical applications for the lasers include: Drilling, Ablation, Structuring, Cutting.

Hole drilling in particular has become an important application in these industries. SCANLAB has introduced an innovative precession subsystem to the market that uses a novel 5-axis technology to incline the beam.

These five axes (x,y,z,α, β) maximize flexibility for process development beyond typical percussion drilling: e.g. spiral drilling, trepanning and precession drilling, which means the laser is tilted and moved helically.
