BOLD Laser Automation (Bedford, NH) has developed its LPF-UR5P Series laser microfabrication system with a modular UR Cobot pallet system. The system includes options for laser drilling, trimming, welding, marking, and laser soldering.

With a UR Robot part placement of ±0.030 mm and onboard or remote camera alignment options, the laser microfabrication system allows an assembly to be picked up, aligned, and inserted into a processing fixture automatically. Onboard IO and PLC programming, simple clamping, or fixturing tools can be added.

The LPF-UR platform, using full component-assembly automation or a basic pallet system, can provide opportunities for scaling up an application without incurring increased labor costs. Employing automated vision tools, the LPF-UR platform can perform human-type precision alignment tasks such as orienting parts and loading into fixturing. The company offers the LPF-UR platform to clients with existing laser systems through seamlessly retrofitting to the laser controls, preserving existing capital investment.
