Opto System Manual Laser Bar Stacker Unstacker Station

Highlights of the Manual Laser Bar Stacker Unstacker Station

Manual Laser Bar Stacker Unstacker Station

Proven Design

Take advantage of a bar stacking and unstacking system that has demonstrated high yields and reliability for stacking and unstacking laser bars for almost 20 years.

High Yield From Day One.

The laser bars are placed and removed by hand without damaging the facets.

Get More Bars Into The Jig.

Going from 150µm resonator cavity all the way to 6mm and 30mm lateral size. Up to 80 bars are possible in a single jig.

Solid Functionality in Stacking

Description of the Manual Laser Bar Stacker Unstacker Station

This tool represents the core techology of each Stacker and Unstacker from Opto System. With this tool and the corresponding jigs (holders for laser bars) you can manually stack and unstack laser bars of virtually every size and resonator length. The tool has been designed to hold the laser bars in place without damaging the delicate facets. It does lack indeed the speed and productivity of a full automatic system, yet the initial cost is much lower. As an additional benefit, if you decide to upgrade to a full automatic system later on, you can use the same jigs and spacers, which are a significant part of the investment.


Why not better an Automatic Stacker/Unstacker tool instead?

Indeed the option with the highest yield, productivity and speed is an automatic tool. Either a pair of tools to independently stack and unstack or an integrating tool combining both functions in one tool. However, this manual tool offers an excellent opportunity for small labs and starting companies to get quickly into the processing of coating facets with probably the most successful system in the market. The initial investment is minimal considering that it contains a set number of jigs to get started. Also, these jigs can be used in a future upgrade to a full automatic system since they are the same.

I want to pack as many bars as possible in one jig: How many bars can be stacked?

To confirm an exact number tests should be done first. It also depends on the cavity length, the thickness of the bars and the spacers, the used substrate material and on other parameters such as your flexibility to adapt the jig to our recommendations. Our estimate is that for a standard configuration around 80 diode bars can be stacked on a single jig. Our engineers will be happy as well to discuss your specific needs and share their decade long expertise with you. A deep hands-on training at your location is part of our delivery. Prior to that it is best if you contact us and send some samples. You are most welcome to consult us!

Do you provide the jigs too?

Yes, the jig is a critical part of our design and we will be happy to offer several designs that will adapt to your individual needs. If you have a design already that is implemented into your factory, we will be glad to discuss how it can be adjusted to fit in your existing tools.

Do you process my wafers?

Right now we do not have the capability to act as an OEM manufacturer but we are looking for partners to be able to do so in the future. If you want to try out how our tools work on your devices, please get in touch and send us some samples. We are eager to show off and learn about new applications. If you own Opto System tools and would like to offer OEM services, please get in touch too.
