Amada Weld Tech has released the Sigma LS laser micromachining subsystem.
The Sigma LS is a femtosecond laser-integrated module ideal for precision micromachining of metals and metal alloys, polymers, ceramics, and glasses.
The system’s small form factor and integration-ready design make the Sigma LS well suited for machine builders and system integrators, as well as contract manufacturers, job shops, and R&D laboratories.
Sigma LS offers processing solutions for a broad range of femtosecond laser micromachining applications requiring optimal quality, minimal thermal effects, and high stability and dimensional accuracy, including hole drilling in stainless steel cannula; selective polymer ablation on metal; hole drilling in ceramic microfluidics; and texturing metals, polymers, ceramics. It is also a good choice for micromachining polymer filter screen and micromachining metal struts and filaments.
The ready-to-integrate subsystem features pre-installed sensitive laser and optical components, delivered with an optimized application and laser process. Amada provides on-site installation support and application training, as well as tooling and part handling guidance.
Sigma LS is available with femtosecond laser options from five to 40 watts and both infrared (IR) and green wavelength options. Both air-cooled and water-cooled laser options are available. Sigma LS features an easy-access control panel for communications with common industrial control systems. Sensitive optical components are contained in a positive pressure environment to prevent contamination.
