    Greetings from CEO  
    As the year-end is approaching it is my pleasure again to thank our customers, partners and friends world-wide for cooperation during the past year. It has indeed been another year of successful business for Modulight, resulting in average sales growth of 97% over the years 2003-2007. Despite the fast ramp-up of the business, we have continued to receive excellent customer feedback for our services shown also as exceptionally high customer retention and record order backlog for coming years totaling $3.5M. None of this would have been possible without the skilled, committed and joyful team of professionals at Modulight, who already gave me the best Christmas present in the form of the highest ever employee satisfaction score. I really feel privileged to be part of this team! We all at Modulightl enjoy working with you!

    Ready2Lase - Application development program


    Paper cutting application

    As a continuation of our application development program, we are happy to present below another customer case that proves Modulight's ability to fulfill and exceed customers' expectations.

    Our technical expertise and product quality were put to a test when a customer from the bio-technology world approached us with a proposal to develop a laser system for material processing. According to the drafted specifications,

    Modulight application development laboratory
    the laser system would be used for cutting 1 mm-tick filter-paper soaked in body fluids. The primary target of the project was to investigate the possibility of replacing the customer's existing mechanical cutter by the laser-assisted tool. Of particular importance to the project's success was the ability of the laser system to cut the organic material (paper) without igniting it. This condition is more critical that in the metal processing systems, owing to the poor thermal conductivity of the paper which promotes heat build-up in the material. In addition, due to the short supply of biological material, the width of the cut kerf needed to be well below 1 mm.

    Modulight was entrusted with the design and assembly of the laser system, optics, and drive electronics. We opted for a high power diode laser system, encased in a fiber-pigtailed package. The high performance laser design emerges from our well-established high power product line, being akin to our already recognized Watt-level laser bars. Following assembly, the system was subjected to extensive tests and the results far exceeded the expectations. With optimized parameters, the laser cutter produces 140 µm-wide sharp cuts at a speed of 3 cm/s. We went even further on to develop a complete robotic system that ensures a reliable and automatic handling of the samples. This system is now under consideration for field deployment by the customer.
