    Company & Product Overview IX-280-ML

    IPG Photonics is the world leader in high power fiber

    lasers and amplifiers. Founded in 1990, IPG pioneered the

    development and commercialization of optical fiber-based lasers

    for use in a wide range of venues such as materials processing,

    medical, scientific and other advanced applications. Fiber lasers

    have revolutionized the industry by delivering superior

    performance, reliability and usability at a lower cost of ownership

    compared with conventional lasers, allowing end users to increase

    productivity and decrease operating costs. IPG is headquartered in

    Oxford, MA with additional facilities throughout the world.

    The IX-280-ML is a high-precision

    laser processing system that maximizes flexibility by

    supporting two lasers and beam delivery systems in a

    single workstation. The lasers may have independent

    beam delivery systems or be configured to have a

    coincident delivery point for advanced parts processing.

    Applications include R&D, where equipment flexibility is

    essential and production processing of parts requiring

    both very fine micromachining and

    thicker-material machining.

    The IX-280-ML lasers and their associated beam delivery systems can be optimized for both tasks, with shared

    workstation elements for part positioning, control and automation delivering highly precise machining of

    a vast array of materials. For more information about the IX-280-ML,

    please contact sales.ipgm@ipgphotonics.com or call 603.518.3200.

    Fiber Laser Options Configur ing the IX-280-ML

    Beam Delivery Options Three beam delivery alternatives (below) are available for the IX-280-ML, each with a number of

    user-selectable options. Although numerous combinations of laser type and beam delivery systems

    are possible, most customers select a thermal cutting/drilling head for the thicker material

    processing and either a fixed or scanning beam delivery for the “finer” or higher-precision work.

    For many applications it is desirable to have a separate beam

    delivery system for each laser, however, for advanced

    processing, IPG offers a dual-beam delivery option that brings

    both laser sources to the same focal point. The resulting ability

    to have two laser beams with different wavelength or energy

    characteristics, illuminating the part either simultaneously, or in

    a programmed sequence, enables many unique light-material

    interactions to be achieved.

    Please contact IPG with specific application requirements and/or refer to

    individual datasheets for full laser specifications; contact

    sales.ipgm@ipgphotonics.com or call 603.518.3200.

    The IX-280-ML can be configured with virtually any laser compatible

    with micromachining and is most typically supplied with the following:

    • IR QCW Lasers for Cutting and Drilling Thicker Materials

    including Sapphire, Silicon and Ceramics

    • IR, Visible or UV Pulsed Lasers for Patterning

    and Micromachining

    • UV lasers for Patterning and Machining Polymers

    IPG’s laser options allow customers to select based on pulse energy,

    emission wavelength and laser power. Cominations of high pulse

    energy, high power QCW lasers for thicker material cutting and

    drilling, paired with either a short-pulse or short-wavelength laser

    for fine machining work are the most popular selections.

    Example of Placement Accuracy

    A ceramic microelectronic part was machined with

    ~ 26,000 features over a period of 8 hours.

    To assess overall placement accuracy and tool stability, the

    Diametric True Position of ~2,600 holes was measured and

    found to be less than 3.1 microns.

    Precision micromachining requires a highly accurate and repeatable part

    positioning system. The IX-280-ML’s foundation is a table and bridge assembly

    made of high-density granite that provides mechanical and thermal stability

    necessary for accurate fine-feature machining.

    Laser sources, their associated beam delivery systems and a stacked

    X-Y-Z-Theta stage system mount to the granite base to minimize positional

    uncertainty and drift. Once a part is mounted on the chuck, the extended

    travel stages position the part under each beam as required, avoiding the

    repositioning errors and loading times that are incurred on traditional

    single-beam units.

    While high levels of positioning accuracy are important for some applications,

    others processes are more concerned with controlling costs. The IX-280-ML

    offers customers a choice of part-positioning options, allowing the system to be appropriately configured for the task. These selections

    include standard and high-precision X-Y stages, mapping correction, manual or motorized, standard and high-precision Z-theta stages

    and analogue or digital galvanometers.
