Whether cutting, welding, or structuring various materials with a laser, the end result of material processing directly correlates to the size, shape, and intensity of the laser beam transmitted onto the workpiece. The system required for laser material processing consists of four elements: the laser itself, the scanner, the lens, and the work plane where the final cutting process takes place. Sill Optics produces high-quality optics that usually consist of a laser expander and an ƒ-Theta objective.
You can automatically observe (and, if necessary, adjust) your work processes with camera-based process monitoring methods. Various or combined methods are recommended depending on the application. We work with you to plan and realise the optimal manner of process monitoring for your projects, e.g., with coaxial or laterally aligned scanning objectives. We are also happy to develop special solutions just for you.
Quantum sensors are the next step in sensory technology, and offer a whole new range of possibilities during production. They facilitate extremely precise measurements that other sensors cannot achieve. For example, quantum systems record highly precise physical data such as temperature, position, speed, and magnetic or electric fields. With Sill Optics you can utilise the advantages of this pioneering technology for your company!
Laser optics are crucial for precision during welding processes. They consolidate the full energy of the laser beam into a small point. Due to the high energy of industrial lasers, a high laser damage threshold is imperative in the automotive industry. Our laser optics are not only suitable for welding and soldering for battery packs, but also for treating other vehicle parts like hairpin stators that form the linchpin of an electrical car engine.
The use of light has revolutionised biomedicine throughout history. Light and electron microscopy makes it possible to inspect biological tissue structures at a considerably small scale so that complex macro-molecules like DNA and proteins can be viewed dynamically in real time. Optic and photonic technology facilitates the observation of molecular details in cells and tissues. Advanced spectroscopic techniques are used to obtain a medical diagnosis and monitor the course of treatment. Sill Optics produces lenses for the biophotonics of tomorrow: new solutions for clinical diagnoses, laser surgery, preclinical research, and treatment monitoring.
Telecentric ƒ-Theta objectives are designed such that the beam almost always meets the processed surface vertically. This is especially important for drilling holes, e.g., through-holes on conductor plates. High-quality objectives ensure that the drilled hole is also perpendicular to the surface outside of the centre of the scanning field. Sill Optics' telecentric objectives also make a big difference in structural work on the conductor plate, as they ensure that the light spot of the laser remains circular on the edge of the field of vision. This means Sill objectives are ideally suited for applications like laser cutting mobile phone screens, protective camera lenses, flexible conductor plates, and more.
Additive manufacture is the layered assembly of components from a powder. Powder materials may be made from plastics, metal, or composites. Digital 3D structure data form the basis for this process. Originally used as a tool to produce patterns, prototypes, and small-scale series, this type of manufacture has become more common in the serial production of various fields. Sill Optics offers various objectives used in additive manufacture, among other areas, such as S4LFT0910-328. Additive manufacture can be used for relatively large components thanks to the large scanning field.
Mechanical, optic 2D or 3D coordinate measurements record detailed, easily displayed quality information of your objects in milliseconds. Our modern sensors are used in various industries: From components like moulds, tools, sheets, gearboxes, and die casting and pressure casting components, to prototypes or entire objects like turbine scoops. We are happy to help you optimise your production process with measuring technology.
For decades we have been working closely with a wide range of machine manufacturers: Our optic measuring units record important data like torque, rotational frequency, efficacy, temperatures, and exact forces (like pressure, traction, flexural forces). The precise process data are transmitted to the evaluation units contact-free in real time. This allows you, for example, to automatically monitor your entire production paths or optimise the effectiveness of a prototype.
