The IX-280 Multi-Beam is a high-precision system that supports two separate lasers and beam delivery systems, allowing optimization for two separate laser processes within a single workstation.
The IX-280 Multi-Beam platform is ideal for micromachining applications in the microelectronics, semiconductor and medical device industries characterized by very small feature geometries.

Simultaneous control of multiple, separate laser sources within a single process recipe.
Chroma.NET is the system control software on IPG’s Micromachining tools used by the microelectronics and medical device industries for drilling, cutting and patterning of parts.
This powerful software can support the simultaneous operation of separate lasers within a single recipe. Chroma.NET provides support of process variables as well as conditional programming through the use of a Macro language, which allows for teaching of complex applications. This flexibility gives customers the ability to change the machine's behavior, so it is not restricted to the single application for which it was purchased. It also allows users to assess the quality of a part as it is being machined; making almost real-time adjustments to machining parameters to maximize yield.
Unlike traditional control software that addresses one specific process, the Chroma.NET software is designed for maximum flexibility; providing ease of use, a single-interface system control, and powerful conditional logic processing that delivers unmatched system adaptability and performance.
Chroma.NET is developed from a 20-year IPG history that includes laser systems design, micromachining system control, and operations in a commercial contract manufacturing environment. Written in the Microsoft.NET framework for maximum reliability, it has been developed to meet the combined goals of maximizing system processing performance and simplifying recipe generation and operator-level controls, while extending the range of applications covered by the company’s multi-laser micromachining workstations.
