About This Webinar

This webinar will present the latest advancements in precision motion control techniques, system architecture, software, algorithms, hardware, and mechanisms for system designers in the laser processing, optics, and photonics industries. The focus is on rapid implementation and minimizing total cost of ownership.

Part I: Photonics Device Test and Manufacturing

With photonics device manufacturing needs exponentiating, device and process engineers need to understand the latest high-throughput precision positioning tools that have emerged to support test and assembly of these devices.

Examples include:

  • Test and assembly of photonics devices distributed over large area substrates, carriers, and trays.
  • Newly developed technologies for fast localization, optimization, and tracking of devices.
  • Autonomous microrobotic and precision-positioning solutions for fast optimization in the manufacturing of silicon photonic, laser electro-optic, lidar, and imaging-optic assembly and testing.
  • Comprehensive, scalable industrial solutions addressing applications from wafer to final assembly.

Part II: Ultrafast Laser Materials Processing of Transparent Materials

Ultrafast lasers are becoming increasingly accessible to researchers and system integrators. Advances on the laser side are met with innovative motion control and nanopositioning solutions for disruptive next-generation processes.

Examples include:

  • Common motion requirements of ultrafast laser materials processing in transparent media and how to optimize directly from CAD models.
  • Working directly from DXF, STL, and G-Code to laser synchronized motion code.
  • Enhancing throughput with application-specific trajectory path optimization and advanced tools for path modifications.
  • Improving tracking errors on curvilinear paths through dynamics and real-time disturbance attenuation.
  • Motion synchronized laser control for best process performance/throughput. 

Who should attend:
Engineers and scientists working with optics, photonics, or laser processing applications and looking to improve throughput and quality. If you need to develop a better process or higher-quality systems with a reliable partner that can support your business globally, you will benefit from this webinar.
