Earlier, we wrote about Professor Andre Simpson’s Research Group at the University of Toronto and their use of the Mira-6 for manufacturing of copper coil sensors Read more

Even though the project was an incredible success there was room for improvement in certain areas of the process. And Professor Simpson had asked the team at NSCNC to create a new machine, equipped with a powerful laser, which would be able to cut at diameters much smaller than what was possible before. And we are pleased to announce that as of August 2020 we have delivered and launched this brand new machine at the University of Toronto at the Scarborough campus.

With the correct lens, the laser can be focused to less than a micron, and the machine was developed with 0.1 microns (1/10,000th of an mm) precision. As the laser light is in the deep UV range, it cuts without generating heat. With these capabilities, Professor Simpson and his research group will develop novel sensors to look inside individual cells and understand the chemistry behind growth and toxicity.
