Laser risk assessment and local rules: LCS-1 laser cutter
Security Group, Tamper Lab, SE09
Description of activity/workplace:New Wave Research LCS-1 laser machining system, Nd:YAG pulsed laser (1 Hz), for use on Mitutoyo FS60Y microscope
Estimated output per pulse:
Integrated Class 2 marker laser:
Whom those hazards affect:Sergei Skorobogatov (supervisor: Ross Anderson)
Reasonably foreseeable outcome:
Safe working procedure:
This laser is no longer in use and has been replaced with a newer and more flexible New Wave Research Quiklaze II laser machining system.
In the (currently not forseen) case that this laser is put into use again, the safe working procedure to be defined would very likely be identical to that described in the risk assessment for the Quiklaze II.
