The cutting system features single-shot 1-Hz or 5-Hz burst pulse repetition rates. The instrument mounts on the Mitutoyo FS60 or A-Zoom microscopes and produces cuts ranging from 1 mm x 1 mm to 50 mm x 50mm. Users may choose the wavelengths (1064 nm, 532 nm, or 355 nm) that match their application requirements.
Energy output is 0.6 millijoules, while pulse widths vary from 5 ns to 7 ns depending on the wavelength. All laser operations, including energy level, cut size, and wavelength, can be controlled via a small remote control box or PC through the built-in RS-232 interface. The system comes with a Windows interface that allows users to select cut size, triggering, and wavelength through a computer running Windows '95 or Windows NT.
