DPSS Lasers, Inc. (Santa Clara, Calif., USA) is presenting and demonstrating the Samurai UV laser marking system with additional spot sizes and work areas. DPSS Lasers specializes in manufacturing 355-nm wavelength UV laser markers and low-cost UV lasers with high peak powers and repetition rates that are suitable for marking and engraving materials such as HDPE, ceramic, plastics and metals. By using the 355-nm wavelength, the Samurai provides a small spot size and large depth of focus. UV lasers take advantage of a “cold” marking process that does not require high average power levels and allows damage-free marking on many materials. Applications include product coding, micromachining, marking, sapphire scribing, ITO removal, semiconductor marking and medical packaging. Unlike IR lasers, UV can use photo-ablation or photochemical response rather than thermal-ablation, which can damage many materials.

  • Taking the hand out of hand layup

    Hand layup has a long history in aerospace composites fabrication, but it's not well suited for automotive composites manufacturing, where volumes are much higher. But the discrete placement of fiber reinforcements still has value. Research is pointing toward automated hand layup that might help this process bridge the aerospace-to-automotive divide.

  • A critical market sector: Downhole composites in oil and gas

    Tremendous secrecy and non-disclosure has kept this profitable composites application out of the spotlight, while it has enabled the current shale oil energy boom.

  • More and more composites blowing in the wind

    Wind energy is putting the uncertainty that was the hallmark of this industry in the rearview mirror. Electricity from this renewable resource is cheaper and more competitive than it's ever been — and getting more so. This massive consumer of composite materials has a bright future.
