Electro Scientific Industries, Inc. (ESI; Portland, OR; www.esi.com now offers the ML5900, a laser micromachining platform that provides component and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) with greater yields, enhanced cost-of-ownership, and enables them to break new ground in the manufacturing of micro-electronics, automotive and other consumer products.
The ML5900 is an advanced, high-precision system that is optimized for industrial-production. The system gives users real-time process control while providing them with a modular framework for maximum flexibility and rapid redeployment. Featuring a high-power, interchangeable diode pumped IR, green, or UV laser, the system enables component and OEM manufacturers to drill, route, and nanostructure a wide range of materials including metals, organics, dielectrics, semiconductors, and hybrid-engineered parts. The platform's integrated metrology and rotary stage allow for fully parallel processing, thereby increasing the system's overall speed and handling capabilities.
