Silvolde, the Netherlands, - Ultrafast pulse lasers are now being adopted as the new workhorse in the processing of materials such as metals, glass, silicon, ceramics, and thin film. With validated benefits in high yield and efficiency the potential of ultrafast lasers can now be leveraged with polygon scanning systems by Next Scan Technology.

To unlock the potential of the newest MHz pico- and femto-second pulsed lasers Next Scan Technology will introduce its proprietary SuperSync Technology at the Laser Munich show, booth C1.313. The laser/scanner synchronization implementation has been developed to eliminate timing-jitter at high scan speeds resulting in highest spot position accuracy.

Eliminating pulse positioning-jitter on MOPA architecture based pulsed lasers demands bidirectional control between scanner and laser. At the show, a laser vendor list with SuperSync compatible interfaces will be disclosed. The company also invites visitors to discuss raising their process throughput in 2.5D micromachining, additive manufacturing, scribing & dicing, on-the-fly drilling, and laser patterning.

Higher scan speeds on larger areas challenge existing scan strategies. To explore the benefits of polygon scanning technology in the shortest time, Next Scan Technology has released the Process Development Kit (see photo).

The LSE170 polygon scanner is complimented with beam guiding optics, beam expander, high quality linear stage in a compact lab ready laser material processing set-up. The PDK is ready for demonstration in our new demo center. Lab time is available for customer process development and testing. The PDK is also for sale and renting.
