Santa Clara, Calif. - Coherent Inc. has opened a new CO2 laser applications laboratory in Beijing, China. This facility will give customers in the rapidly growing Chinese materials processing and microelectronics markets the ability to get quick feedback on the suitability of their specific application for CO2 laser processing. This applications laboratory is able to process a wide variety of laser/material interactions with up to 400 watts of laser power, and as it adds higher power levels it will be able to address a broader selection of applications.

Sri Venkat, VP/GM, CO2 Business Unit at Coherent says “Beyond traditional materials processing applications, we’re now seeing increased demand for sealed CO2 lasers for a variety of new applications and materials. Having the ability to perform testing locally will speed development and adoption of these new processes in China.”
