Laser light can become a powerful tool when integrated into a high-precision machine tool environment. Posalux offers such machine-tool solutions for the micromachining of various applications in the medical, electronics and automotive industries.
Since the company introduced the first FEMTO laser machine for the automotive industry, it has added more applications to its portfolio. With the recent development of the model FEMTO MONO, Posalux offers a compact yet versatile solution for machining operations, including drilling, cutting, routing, and turning, by using ultra-short pulse laser technology. Various materials like ceramics, nitinol and polymers (such as PEEK polyaryletheretherketone) or precious materials (gold and platinum) can be processed in a stable and consistent way. Material integrity is also guaranteed, due to the cold ablation process applied by the FEMTO, which falls well below 500 femtosecond laser pulses.
The machine’s concept is modular, enabling the use of either a high-precision X-Y table or 5-axis layout, depending on the application. The TWIN version comes with two independent work stations, and it is intended to be used for high volume production. Both versions come with a single laser source and one optical head, which is chosen based on the application. In addition, the TWIN version can be equipped with a milling spindle that is intended for rapid prototyping and a small series. Automatic loading and unloading systems can be applied, as required. With its various machine configurations, Posalux offers precision, productivity and flexibility for all kinds of industrial machining demands.
