Up to 10W of CO2 laser power could be applied to melt the micropipette/fiber. The heating power, heating area and time can be controlled by internal microprocessor. The pulling timing, force and speed are also precisely adjustable.


  • Capable of pulling quartz, borosilicate and aluminosilicate glass
  • Pulls electrodes with tip diameters smaller than 0.03µm
  • The laser has no melting point limit as with conventional metal filaments
  • Fully programmable
