TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce the release of the optical processing ma-chine “Lasermeister 100A.” This optical processing machine is a Nikon's proprietary metal processing machine that performs various metal processing with ease and with high precision using laser. Its capabil-ity encompasses additive manufacturing as a 3D printer, laser marking & welding and even polishing.

Conventional metal processing machines conjure up the image of being “big,” “expensive” and “hard to use.” The Lasermeister 100A is going to completely change the former image of metal processing ma-chines. By providing solution, the Lasermeister 100A, Nikon makes metal processing more approachable to wide range of people and industries.

Availability April 2019

Development Background

The optical processing machine, Lasermeister 100A was developed with the goal of creating a brand-new market and industry in the world of monodzukuri. Nikon has long been involved in the development, manufacturing and sales of semiconductor lithography systems known to be the “most precise machinery in history.”

The advanced optical technology and precision control technology developed for Nikon's lithography systems enabled us to realize a high quality, smaller sized and less expensive processing machine.

Key Features

1. Enabling A Wide Variety of Metal Processing

3. Simple Operations

The Lasermeister 100A was developed based on the concept of becoming a “metal processing machine that can be handled by anybody.” The Lasermeister 100A requires no cumbersome “initial set-ups” that are typically performed for metal processing machines because it automatically recognizes the part and automatically starts processing it.

4. Safety

The Lasermeister 100A has gone through multiple safety standard assessments by a third-party certifica-tion authority. In addition to the safety related to the laser beam and mechanical contact, adequate safety is ensured against explodability of metal powder. The Lasermeister 100A is reliable and safe even for beginners.
