JPSA announces expanded job shop, Applications Lab

J P Sercel Associates (JPSA), a world leading designer, supplier, and systems integrator of laser materials processing workstations, recently completed its move to a new 35,000 sq. ft. facility. The new facility houses a full-featured job shop for contract laser drilling, wafer processing, and micromachining services, engineering space, laser service and refurbishment center and equipment demonstration facility.

Rick Slagle, Sales and Marketing Director, said, "Our contract manufacturing and job shop capabilities have expanded with the addition of new DPSS and excimer laser workstations with a wide range of capabilities. Our expertise runs from wafer singulation and LED lift-off for the semiconductor packaging industry, to micromachining a full spectrum of materials for biomedical research and medical products manufacturing." In addition to UV laser technology, JPSA's job shop and applications laboratory now have different laser types available including IR and "Green" lasers for emerging industries such as thin film solar panel manufacture.

Slagle added that the more space and more systems have allowed JPSA to expand their applications development lab, including hiring new highly skilled personnel. "We have recently welcomed Dr. Jie Fu, a skilled laser applications engineer specializing in ultra-fast solid-state laser systems, to our Applications Engineering Group. We now have a high-powered group of Doctorate-degreed engineering professionals to serve our customer's challenging applications development needs." The expansions, Slagle adds, are part of JPSA's planned growth strategy in serving a global laser technology market, and an expanding range of cutting-edge industries and advanced applications in micromachining and materials processing.
