Paper Abstract

A novel Automated Image Magnification system has been developed for a CO2 laser glass processing system (LZM-100 LazerMaster) enabling precise and accurate alignment of optical fiber and fiber based components. This system measures the size of the fiber image and adjusts the imaging optical path based on the fiber size and process requirement. By automatically adjusting the magnification, we can process fibers and components requiring a large field of view (<2500um) and those with micron or submicron features without having to modify the machine configuration.
