VERSATILE GAME-CHANGING PICOSECOND
LASER FOR PRECISION MICROMACHINING
- Industry-leading cost-performance
- Versatile TimeShift™ ps programmable burst mode
- Most compact, It’s in the Box™ laser
- 24/7 industrial reliability
IceFyre® redefines picosecond micromachining lasers with a patent-pending design to achieve exceptional performance and unprecedented versatility at industry-leading cost performance. Based on Spectra-Physics’ It’s in the Box™ design, IceFyre integrates laser and controller into the industry’s smallest package.
Unprecedented Versatility and Exceptional Performance
IceFyre’s unique design exploits fiber laser flexibility and Spectra-Physics’ exclusive power amplifier capability to enable TimeShift™ ps programmable burst-mode technology and wide adjustability of repetition rates. A standard set of waveforms is provided with each laser; an optional TimeShift ps GUI is available for creating custom waveforms. The laser provides pulse-on-demand triggering with the lowest jitter in its class for high quality processing at high scan speeds, e.g. when using a polygon scanner.
24/7 Industrial Reliability
IceFyre is designed, built, and tested to stringent quality standards for reliable continuous operation in demanding 24/7 manufacturing environments. IceFyre lasers’ automatic data logging software monitors all key laser performance parameters over the life of the laser, providing a powerful service/preventative maintenance diagnostics feature and product reliability tool. A customer version of this software is also available.
