Study Notes

Laser Beam Machining (LBM)

  • Laser beam machining (LBM) is a machining process that uses a high-powered laser beam to remove material from a workpiece.
  • LBM is best suited for materials that are sensitive to heat, fragile, or have a high aspect ratio, such as ceramics, composites, and thin metals.

Laser Beam Machining on Glass

  • Laser beam machining can be done on glass without melting the surface, but it requires precise control of the laser beam's power and duration.
  • Photomachinable glass offers the advantage of being able to be machined with high precision and accuracy, making it ideal for applications such as microfluidics and optics.

Lasers Used in LBM

  • Some types of lasers used in laser beam machining include neodymium (Nd), neodymium yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG), and excimer lasers.

Mechatronics Engineering

  • Mechatronics engineering is also known as mechatronics design or mechatronic engineering.
  • The main disciplines integrated in mechatronics engineering are electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and computer science.
  • The intention of mechatronics engineering is to design and develop intelligent systems with enhanced functionality and performance.
  • The term 'mechatronics' originates from the combination of the words 'mechanical' and 'electronics'.
  • The term 'mechatronics' was created by Tetsuro Mori, a Japanese engineer, in 1969.
