Lightspeed ADL™ Application Development Lab
Lightspeed Application Development Lab

Bringing a new product to market can be challenging, but the more you can reduce the time it takes the sooner you can see the profits.  The Lightspeed ADL is dedicated to accelerating the launch of your newest technology –
we bring your designs to light.

Dedicated Resources

In the 8,000 sq. ft. Lightspeed ADL, you'll find resources focused on process development, prototyping and pilot production needs: 

  • An experienced team of 11 polymer micromachining experts – engineers, optical designers and technicians –  with more than 185 years of laser micromachining experience
  • Excimer, DPSS, and CO2 lasers, as well as ultrafast options in picosecond and femtosecond workstations
  • Capability to handle various geometries:  flat, tubular, 3-D, and balloons
  • Metrology to ensure quality and compliance to the tightest tolerances
  • Two shift operation for additional capacity and reduced lead times

Feasibility/Proof of Concept

You might pursue a number of design iterations before you are confident in locking down final specifications. You need a partner that is creative, but also responsive and able to provide a rapid turnaround to meet critical milestones. You may also be wondering if your design is functional or manufacturable. Our application development engineers will consult with your team and support your efforts by offering:

  • Evaluation of laser-material interaction
  • Optimization of processing parameters
  • Iterative prototyping and testing of evaluation samples

Process Development/Pilot Production

And when you're ready for first-in-human or other critical studies, you don't want to have to search out a different manufacturing partner. Resonetics can support you here as well with a QSR-compliant system, cleanroom manufacturing and robust process controls. If you need a short production run to get a product into an evaluation phase the Lightspeed ADL offers:

  • Experienced technical leads and project managers
  • Cost-effective low-volume production
  • Established validation and production transfer procedures

By providing a range of technology and services, our team can develop the optimal laser process to meet your performance and cost requirements. At the Lightspeed ADL we believe that innovation, responsiveness, flexibility and great communication are the key tenets of a successful collaboration.
