ML5-3 series machines work in a fully automatic (computer-controlled) mode, which allows faster trimming.

Multi-channel measurements are done with the help of multiplexers and multi-probe cassettes (array of quick-swap cassettes optimized for measuring hybrid integrated circuits (HIS) or substrates with regular chip-resistors).

Laser spot positioning and trimming is done on a precision XY positioning system (two-axis galvanometer scanner). The substrate is fixed on a computer-controlled workpiece stage. A multi-probe cassette is placed on a precision micro lift.

The machine is equipped with a new generation Ytterbium fiber laser.

Measurements are done with the aid of Digital Measuring System accommodating a multiplexer, 14-bit analogue-to-digital converter and a digital signal processor.

Software is compatible with Windows XP and ensures proper measuring and trimming. The software enables to download, process and fulfill job files, which contain such parameters as target resistor values and dimensional tolerance, laser and scanner technical parameters. The software prints-out a trimming report and controls an overall operation of the system.

The machine allows to manually align a substrate with the laser spot.
