Laser Micromachining Systems

Whether your requirement is for an industrial-grade manufacturing tool or a system dedicated to research, we have an array of laser micromachining products to match your needs. All systems can be supplied with a wide range of lasers to meet the application requirements. to discuss your application and requirements.

C Series

Flexible Laser Micromachining System for Production or R&D

  • Robust: Designed for 24/7 operation
  • Easy to use: Pre-programmed processes to reduce operator involvement
  • Configurable: Choice of nano, pico or femtosecond pulsed laser with motion control options
  • Stability: Granite frame with vibration isolation provides stable drilling process
  • Functionality: Cimita control software simplifies the process from CAD direct to production

Efficient and robust, the C Series platform is a turnkey laser micromachining tool with a bigger footprint than the A Series and the flexibility of customisation for high-throughput production or R&D applications.

Having spent over 45 years working with lasers and laser technology we wanted to design a robust production tool suitable for our own high-volume contract services laboratory and also offer to our customers. On that basis, the C Series was born. This platform is built to operate in the most rigorous of continuous production environments with the flexibility of customising through choice of lasers and motion controllers and optimised to your specific requirements. The C Series is typically used for industrial production but is equally suited to pilot production runs and research and development applications where a high level of precision is required.

Please contact us for more information on the range of options and accessories available for the C Series.
