Laser technology can be used in the manufacturing industry in many ways such as welding, cutting and drilling by gathering laser light (light of one frequency) to make high energy conditions. Laser technology for automated machinery is very well established and can be specified for all manner of applications and materials.
Citizen have integrated laser technology using the very latest machine models to satisfy the growing demands for challenging applications that require very small component features, normally too challenging for conventional machining processes; components that are inherently unstable and or applications that require very fast cutting speeds.
Advantages of Laser Process
Non-contact laser removal does not involve tool wear.
High accuracy cutting with no deflection force.
Machining chips are reduced to dust and easily washed or blown away.
Ultra-fine processing by using a very small diameter laser beam.
Very small component features with sharp edges, normally too small for conventional machining can easily be achieved.
