Thank you for visiting 6-D Laser at Photonics West 2020
Thanks to all who attended the Photonics West 2020 tradeshow in San Francisco, it was a great success and we appreciate the customers whom came to visit. We appreciate your interest in 6-D Laser systems and hope to hear from you soon. Feel free to make a comment on the Contact page if you would like to discuss our systems in more detail.
6-D Ultrafast Laser Micromachining System
6-D Laser, LLC has developed an integrated ultrafast laser micromachining system that combines highspeed galvo scanning with the novel positioning capabilities of ALIO’s Hybrid Hexapod®. The result is a system that can process hard, transparent materials with wide range Taper Angle Control for creating high aspect ratio features in thick substrates without limitations on the feature or field size.
Typical laser ablative processes result in machined features that have significant side wall taper, ie- a desired cylindrical hole will have a conical profile. While precession scanheads can create features with near-zero angled side walls, they are limited to small angles of incidence (AOI) and small field sizes by the optics in the beamline.
6-D Laser’s micromachining system controls the AOI and resulting wall taper angle through the Hybrid Hexapod® motion system. Additionally, the programmable tool center point allows the control of AOI over the entire galvo scan field, enabling the processing of large features.
• 6-D Hybrid Hexapod with programmable Tool Center Point for Taper Angle Control.
• ACS Motion controllers implemented with forward and inverse kinematic transformations.
• High-speed ScanLab excelliScan galvo scanner with scanAhead feed-forward control for maximum dynamics.
• Optical Beamline optimized for high-average power, high-rep rate, ultrafast lasers.
• Versatile software interface for combined control of motion and scanning systems.
• Integrated machine vision for alignment, calibration, and inspection.
• All components integrated on single granite structure for mechanical and thermal stability.
