IX-255 UV Laser Micromachining System

Share this on social media:

IPG Photonics, a provider of fibre lasers and amplifiers, has announces the introduction of the IX-255 UV Laser Micromachining System – an advanced, highly flexible system from IPG's Microsystems Division, for multi-purpose, R&D and small-scale production applications.

IPG's multi-functional system can be configured with a beam energy density up to 25 J/cm2 for applications such as drilling ceramic materials or with lower energy density for large-field exposures such as conformal coating removal, insulation-stripping and annealing. A third configuration allows the programmable selection of beam shapes for general-purpose patterning, cutting and machining of blind features.

IPG's IX-255 is a fully interlocked, Class 1 workstation built on a granite base and support structure for vibration minimisation and thermal stability with dual microscope vision systems for automated part alignment and inspection. The workstation is integrated with a proprietary UV laser.

System software includes macro-building tools for fast programming and generation of automating processes for complex feature machining while additional utilities allow complex pattern input from standard CSV and DXF files.
