What was the deciding factor for incorporating the Contec BX-110n?
"A major deciding factor was their ability to customizing the FPGA, a device that enables advanced control, to our specifications. By incorporating control that provides high-speed, high-precision laser processing control into the FPGA, we were able to create a black box for our control technology." Mr.Nishinaka said.
However, they did encounter a difficult point during development.
"It was difficult to incorporate the advanced laser processing control that we wanted, and we needed to be able to control entire devices at the same time. We had to develop our laser processing equipment in parallel with the controller being developed by Contec, and it took approximately four years from development of the controller prototype to verification of the laser processing equipment. This is because of the strength of Contec who patiently listened to our detailed requests and developed the hardware to match our requests. Using their flexible responsiveness and advanced technology, they were able to help us develop our own controller." Mr.Nishinaka said.
The Contec BX-110n has a space-saving design. This also enabled the compact design of the newly developed LPM series of laser processing equipment.
“There are large requirements to achieving a compact design of laser processing equipment. We are proud to have created a device that takes high-speed, high-precision laser processing technology and enables more generic laser processing.” Mr.Nishinaka said.
In addition to answering growing needs, there are great possibilities in laser processing equipment that has high performance and compact design.
"Until now, the main objects that has been processed is glass, but the LPM series enables the processing of materials other than glass according to your desires. Because the laser engine with the appropriate laser wavelength can be selected according to the object being processed, a wide variety of material can be laser-processed. We can now fully meet more diverse needs." Mr.Nishinaka said.
