In business for over 20 years, with nearly 10,000 units fielded, the experts at Bright Solutions have built a history of success and have gained a vast amount of applications experience. In their modern applications lab, ideal for proof-of-concept testing and sample processing, they provide a host of DPSS laser configurations with a range of wavelengths and power levels, have a dedicated staff with years of application experience, and even offer process development support.
The experience of the applications lab experts covers a broad range of materials and processing techniques. For example, with glass and sapphire, they have demonstrated lens marking, surface engraving, microchannel processing, dicing, hole drilling, and intra-volume marking. They can perform color marking on stainless steel, deep 3D laser milling on synthetic polycrystalline diamond (PCD), micro-hole drilling through nickel iron alloy, gray scale marking on plastics, high contrast marking on heat-sensitive polymeric materials, and many other successful application examples (Click Here to see a presentation detailing their applications experience). However, for this article, we are going to focus on the processing and cutting of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and the laser solutions best equipped to handle this application group.
