The Definition of Precision in Laser processing.
ACSYS introduces the new flagship of the PIRANHA family. As the name implies, the new PIRANHA®μ PICO is equipped with a latest generation of a picosecond laser. Optionally, the modular design of the system also allows configuration with a femtosecond laser or a current fiber laser system.
The PIRANHA®μ PICO is also capable of being equipped with a second laser source as a dual laser system.
With a footprint of less than 2,5qm the PIRANHA®μ PICO is extremely compact and flexible.

Using an ACSYS Lasertechnik Piranha FL20S Laser System with the ACSYS 3D Laser Engraving module, Intaglio Mint and ACSYS Lasertechnik created a unique challenge coin as an example of their market leading capabilities and technology.
In a collaborative effort Intaglio and ACSYS were able to create a coin with with 3D engraving, Micro-Text, 2D-3D visual effects, patented coin & die frosting and the ACSYS black / white surface treatment.
These design features were made possible by the use of the precision laser engraving processes which have revolutionized the minting industry in the last decade. With laser beam spot sizes ranging from 15-80 Micron in diameter (0.00059“ – 0.00314“) the features produced would not be possible with conventional manufacturing equipment. This combined with the patented frosting and surface treatments the possibilities for die manufacturing and coining have become much more cost effective and secure than in years past. Adam Nelson of ACSYS Lasertechnick states:
White on black – a clear case for the PIRANHA precision laser machine
ACSYS laser systems engrave with razor-sharp precision
Markings on the adjustment rings of telescopic sights and scopes have to be white, extremely precise and clearly legible from all angles. The PIRANHA 1 laser processing system from ACSYS Lasertechnik GmbH (Kornwestheim, Germany) has the answer to all these requirements. Over the last few months, the SIG SAUER Electro-Optics division (Portland, Oregon, USA) has been using this system to engrave markings on their products. As a result, component production has increased and more components are being manufactured in-house. A great result all round. “Along with engraving the adjustment wheels on our telescopic sights and scopes, we were also keen to offer our customers more customized products” Says Josh Vail, Design Engineer at the SIG SAUER Electro-Optics Division, when discussing the reasons behind the company’s decision to buy the new laser system. The specifications are very precise as the white figures and fillings have to be applied to the black anodized aluminum in a single process. Josh Vail tested a range of machines from a number of laser system manufacturers. In these tests, the start-up company focused on the quality and precision of the marking, which had to be high resolution and very white. The US company was looking for a powerful system that was also flexible, with user-friendly software. Josh Vail also expected excellent customer service, where his company would not be treated like a number but where there would be a close, trusting relationship for the entire lifecycle of the machine.
ACSYS is aware that ecology-minded acting and thinking and sustainable operations are highly priority areas. Therefore ACSYS’s corporate philosophy comprises commitment to observe and take into consideration environmentally friendly matters, an attitude that is a future-oriented development factor.

Local business ACSYS Lasertechnik GmbH has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.
As one of the world‘s leading manufacturers of lightweight alloy wheels, BORBET GmbH is continuously advancing its production technologies. BORBET examined a number of processes in its search for options in the high precision surface design of aluminum wheels which meet the standards of commitment to quality. The decision was made in favor of the customizable BARRACUDA® laser processing system by ACSYS Lasertechnik GmbH. Commissioned at the end of 2012, the system today represents the successful manufacturing technology for the patented laser-paint etching process “ExaPeel” by BORBET.
