Laser Tech Supplier JPSA Expands

JPSA expanded job shop.

JP Sercel Associates Inc. (JPSA; Manchester, NH) has completed the expansion of its laser manufacturing facility. By adding 24,000 sq ft of space, the expansion provides the company with the ability to meet customers' increasing demands for excimer laser micromachining systems and other technologies. In addition to ultrafast laser micromachining systems, the company offers UV excimer and DPSS systems, UV and VUV laser-beam delivery systems, laser materials processing development, optical damage testing, and excimer laser refurbishment services.

In addition to doubling the size of the existing laser production area used to manufacture laser micromachining systems, the expansion will also provide cleanrooms, R&D laboratories to develop micromachining applications, and office space for accommodating growing customer service and engineering teams.

"The expansion is a result of JPSA's continued success in providing state-of-the-art laser micromachining systems and applications support for numerous industries worldwide," remarks Jeffrey P. Sercel, chairman and CTO of JPSA. "The laser equipment and R&D services we provide will carry our growth into the next decades as we continue to develop new technologies and increase our workforce."

As part of the new expansion, the company has also expanded its job-shop operations with the addition of new DPSS, ultrafast, and excimer laser workstations, extending its capacity to accommodate global micromachining customers in the biomedical and other sectors. Providing additional space, this expansion enables the installation of several laser micromachining workstations, including ultrafast laser tools.

"The ultrafast lasers will permit fabrication of traditionally difficult materials such as quartz, glass, and various metals, allowing us to deliver a wide spectrum of materials processing capabilities to our customers," Sercel notes. "We also added key application scientists as part of our planned growth strategy to better serve a global laser technology market."
