New Dart 8 ps laser delivers precision processing for a range of microprocessingx applications from glass, OLED and stainless steel to PCB via holes and probe cards

24 Sep 2021

Novanta develops pivotal laser-based components and seamless sub-systems that are the perfect solution for high-quality material processing. The new Dart picosecond laser has been designed to be compatible with Novanta’s large and diverse range of scanheads. The wraparound electronics and control software have been tailored to ease integration into any Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) platform. Our ruggedised and compact designs make our sub-systems especially fit for industrial environments where reliability is key. In practical terms, this means Novanta sub-system solutions are suitable for a wide range of material processing applications which require high quality and reliable beam performance. These applications include: 

  • Drilling and cutting in PCBs and flexible PCBs supporting the microelectronics industry including 5G
  • Complex and precise structures in metals for markets including medical and e-mobility
  • Processing of novel materials for new & emerging markets 
  • Precision and damage free cutting of brittle materials such as glass for displays and consumer electronics

Dart has been specifically engineered by Novanta for OEM users and offers a straightforward integration pathway with one single supplier for both laser and scanning sub-systems. As standard, Dart features precision boresighting specifications that reduce the complexity of optical alignment during installation. With a ruggedized, compact design, reliable pointing stability, and repeatable beam characteristics from laser to laser, Dart delivers high quality picosecond laser cutting and drilling even in tough industrial environments.
