Conquering the Chinese market. The TechnoSpark nano-tech center inaugurated its representative office in Beijing. The main scope of activity is laser technologies and equipment for material processing. Natalya Pantalyova went on visit to the place that gives rise to innovations and watched the process of laser metal engraving.
The TechnoSpark nano-tech center inaugurated its representative office in the capital of the People’s Republic of China. Its main area of activity is picosecond lasers. It is a promising, quickly emerging innovative industry of microprocessing that is of great interest to many global companies. Particularly, so to partners in East Asia.
Tamila Zlachevskaya, Laser Division Director of the TechnoSpark Nano-Center: “We are going to use it as a platform for negotiations, search for accessories and clients. There will also be a working sample so clients could come and see it with their own eyes, or bring something for a test. Because buying a laser without proper understanding of how the cutting is done and what is exactly going on is rather difficult.”
Five years ago the nano-center embarked on the development of a picosecond laser on the basis of optic fibre. Since then engineers of TechnoSpark have achieved great results by creating the product with a unique technology. The area of application of optic laser beam generators is quite large: from medical use to digital technologies. Those fashion-conscious should know that faded jeans are thanks to them too.
Tamila Zlachevskaya, Laser Division Director of the TechnoSpark Nano-Center: “We got a machine that is currently 40% more price-efficient than that of the nearest competitor, as the spring exhibition in Shanghai showed. I mean our unique technology that is our know-how and patent claim enables us to cut the cost of accessories for this laser.”
This laser metal engraving process reminds that of a printing machine. After a few minutes we could see the TechnoSpark label engraved on the plate. Lasers are great helpers in dozens of production industries and other areas. A simple example:
Tamila Zlachevskaya, Laser Division Director of the TechnoSpark Nano-Center: “If we take a usual mobile phone, microprocessing will account for about 50% of all operations. It involves glass cutting for smartphones, etching of touch panels so they become sensors responsive to touch. And this is all done by picosecond lasers that we deal with.”
At the end of August, the director of the nano-center laser division will take part in the World Photonics Technology Summit that will be held in Brussels (Belgium).
