Custom Laser Process & Automation

Owens Design and Turner Laser Systems

Manufacturers needing automated laser solutions that scale know how difficult it can be to find the right partner.

Laser companies may know lasers but they don’t know how to incorporate them into the manufacturing process at scale. Custom automation equipment manufacturers know how to design and manufacture equipment to scale production but aren’t laser experts.

By partnering with Turner Laser Systems (TLS), conveniently headquartered in our building, Owens Design delivers the best of both worlds: state-of-the-art, automated laser processes that can be scaled to meet your production requirements – helping you bridge the valley of death for new product introductions.

The Laser Automation Design & Build Process

Our experienced laser and automation engineers work closely with your team to develop and deliver custom laser technologies tailored to your production and manufacturing needs, including automated, specialized and precise micromachining applications.

Turner Laser System’s 360-Mastery Methodology is designed to develop a production-ready process, provide you real data, and demonstrate a solution that fits your business, technological and manufacturing needs. This systematic approach can include pre-production parts for testing, ensuring smooth transition from R&D to production.

Key steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: to understand process requirements, product specifications, and more
  2. Laser Selection: determining the right laser for your application
  3. Design & Build of Your Part: to your specifications with optimized and custom technology
  4. Manufacturing Qualification: to achieve optimal throughput, yield, reliability, and more
