The article features the Promaster from Photon Machines. Promaster is a compact, turnkey micromachining system powered by a patented ultrafast preionized, excimer laser with short pulse length and flat beams at 248 nanometer and other wavelengths. The product has a high peak power combined with ultraviolet wavelengths that significantly reduce heat affected zone, debris, and reflow. Thus, cuts are more uniform and are faster and cleaner.
