ESI intros laser micromachining platform for high-volume production

Laser micromachining systems maker ESI has introduced its Jade low-cost, high-volume-production laser micromachining platform.

Portland, OR, and Shanghai - Laser micromachining systems maker Electro Scientific Industries (ESI) has introduced its Jade low-cost, high-volume-production laser micromachining platform, which adapts to a range of configurations for applications such as cutting, marking, drilling, and engraving.

The new platform addresses challenges faced by manufacturers in the fast-changing consumer electronics segment, where they cope with new materials, new technologies, and evolving consumer expectations. Meanwhile, there is relentless pressure to reduce costs, meet quality requirements, and achieve high-volume, high-yield production. The platform is the first laser micromachining platform capable of meeting all these diverse requirements, offering unprecedented levels of versatility and cost-efficient operation.

The platform is designed to provide contract and consumer electronics manufacturers with a smarter manufacturing option through the use of extendable and configurable stages, lasers, and automation. The base platform can be configured with multiple laser and optics options as well as a range of add-on options, including pre- and post-inspection, metrology, and advanced alignment automation. All configurations use a common user interface to reduce training time.

This flexibility means that a platform can address multiple marking, cutting, and drilling applications in a responsive and cost-effective manner, improving the useful lifespan of the tool and significantly lowering overall cost of ownership for our customers. The platform continues the company’s commitment to reliability, responsive local support in China, and meeting expectations for precision and high-volume yields.
