PUCHHEIM, Germany, Sept. 21, 2016 — Scanlab AG has announced the basiCube 10 scan system, optimized for use with 532-nm green laser light. The system is ideal for laser marking applications, laser-based glass engraving and the processing of precious metals, silicon wafers and other materials that respond poorly to typical IR wavelengths. It also enables the generation of fine contours by focusing to very small spot sizes while simultaneously maintaining excellent beam quality and low heat development. The device allows engraved 3D shapes inside a glass body or welding copper wires directly onto the silicon substrates of integrated circuits. Applications include medical products, decorative items and semiconductor components.
