Laser Trimming: Laser trimming means the calibration or adjustment of an electronic circuit to perform a particular function. Lee Laser Nd:YAG lasers are used to trim thick-film hybrid microcircuits that are used in automotive and computer electronics. They also are used for high-speed trimming of chip resistors for surface mount technology applications.

1. all laser models comfortably meet their rated output power specifications
2. at rated laser output beam power level, the user can expect long arc lamp lifetime which can exceed 1000 hours, and laser-diode lifetimes in the range 10,000-20,000 hours, when the laser is operated continuously.

Our customers can rely on the fact that our lasers will meet their published performance specifications.

Diamond Processing: Only a Q-switched CW Nd:YAG laser can be used to cut gemstone diamonds. The laser may be used to cut large gemstones that present a definite hazard to the conventional cleaving technique. The laser also is used also to “kerf” a diamond in preparation for conventional cleaving. Although Belgium, Israel and South Africa have been the traditional centers for diamond processing, India has now surpassed these countries as sources for new laser business.

Thin Metal Cutting: There are two thin metal cutting applications for which the Lee Laser Model 650M/CD Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser is especially well suited:

1. medical stent devices: used in balloon angioplasty to prevent an expanded vein from eventual recollapse.
2. metal stencils for surface-mount resistor paste application: laser cutting is replacing other “dirty” technologies such as chemical etching.
