This quarter, we at BOLD have the opportunity to share with our customers the latest in affordable precision laser-based digital fabrication and manufacturing. Our introduction of the LPM500™ is a milestone in cost-effective digital manufacturing, where a designer can download a CAD defined laser pattern to the machine to produce products. This specific application involved a disposable glass substrate used in a medical diagnostics analysis tool. The LPM500™ incorporated a user-friendly UR5 Cobot manufactured by Universal Robotics and supplied to us by Neff Automation on an OEM basis since BOLD is a value-added OEM integrator of the UR Robots. BOLDs in house engineering team create a simple nest zone for loading and unloading substrates as well as a rotary indexer to present the substrate in front of the laser for processing. We are utilizing a debris extraction system and customized nozzle for employee safety, while the system performs the micromachining sequence day in and day out.
