Collaborative robotic solution for laser micromachining

Collaborative robotic solution for laser micromachining

The goal of the project is to create an alternative agile manufacturing technology that will increase production and it will be based on a collaborative robotic solution, applying the machine vision, force detector, and custom software into the micro-machining workstation.

The solution

Solution is to align sample using inhouse built solutions. Required accuracy was achieved by creating a tool to utilise camera and automated object detection to align sample in submicron accuracy.


Femtosecond fabrication is operating at micron level accuracy. The challenge is to achieve required accuracy using automation solution for such processes.


This is a proof of concept that even micron accuracy tasks can be automated which allows us to develop products with built in automation.

  • Project results
    It was inspiring experience to participate together with WOP in this high technology Trinity project. Collaborative robots help people in various areas every day and this one is not an exception. The Robot fully automates the loading of the machine, with no people required to monitor the process just to change wafers magazines, when it is needed.
