Casix, a Fabrinet company and manufacturer of high-quality crystal and precision optics products, announced today that it has added an Ion Beam Sputtering VEECO coater to enable higher precision, high threshold damage coating for high power optic lasers.
Casix also added three Optorun IAD coaters to support increased quantity production of laser components. All machines are in-house and in-production.
“As a producer of precision custom optics, we want to provide customers with the best available processes for quality and precision, as well as the flexibility and in-house capacity to scale production as needed,” said Casix General Manager Toh Seng Ng.
The Ion Beam Sputtering VEECO machine enables Casix to achieve high threshold damage coating, very high surface reflectivity (99.99%), high surface quality and superior control over the coating wavelength. The Optorun IAD coater machines include a larger coater chamber, supporting increased quantity production of high power laser components including mirrors, Nd:YVO4 crystals, beam splitters, windows and wedge crystals. These components are designed for use in high power laser systems typically used in health and biomedical applications.
