Spectrum laser systems are used across a wide range of industries and for many different applications.
Below you will find some examples of situations where our products can be used and if you visit our wire sample gallery you will find photos of a range of wire and cable samples that have been stripped with SIENNA laser wire stripping equipment.
If you have a laser application which isn’t listed on these pages and you would like us to mention it please contact us.
You can also search the site for specific wire types using the search box at the top right of the site.
Wire / Cable Marking
Nova laser and NovaJet ink-jet wire marking systems offer high quality, permanent and highly legible identification of wire and cable. We have a range of products to meet all throughput requirements, as well as automation accessories to maximize productivity.
Polymer Wire / Cable Stripping
SIENNA Infrared CO2 laser stripping systems, in linear, single or dual axis or rotary beam delivery configurations can strip the majority of wire and cable constructions used in most electronic manufacturing applications.
Wire/Cable Up to 7mm (0.04″) OD*:
- Fixed beam operations (parts move on x-y stage below – Class 4): SIENNA 225FB
- End strips only: SIENNA 210S; SIENNA 325S; SIENNA 350S
- End strips and window strips: SIENNA 210D; SIENNA 325D; SIENNA 350D
- Faster, more precise stripping: SIENNA 725D; SIENNA 750D
Wire/Cable Larger than 7mm (0.04″) OD*:
- Strips lengths up to 200mm (7.9″): SIENNA 530
Automated Laser Strip, Measure & Cut
SIENNA 700 wire strippers can be automated to perform a strip, measure and cut operation. This is achieved by pairing the fast, non-damaging accuracy of laser stripping, with the convenience and efficiency of a mechanical measure and cut system.

Polymer Wire / Cable Ablation
SIENNA Infrared CO2 laser systems with scanning optics can quickly and cleanly remove programmable, selective areas of polymer materials that are bonded to metal conductors, for example on Flat Laminated Cables (FLCs) and Flat Flexible Cables (FFCs).
- See SIENNA 850
Cable Shield Cutting
SIENNA linear dual axis and fixed beam Scriber systems are used to cut the metal shields in micro or pico-coaxial cable assemblies. The laser will score a line across a solder dipped shield which can then be easily snapped and removed to expose the underlying dielectric.
Fine Wire Stripping
SIENNA 800 FMWS technology is ideal for stripping wire and cable smaller than 30 AWG, down to just a few microns in diameter. These wires require special handling and are too delicate for mechanical strip processes.
Magnet Wire Stripping / Enamel Ablation
Standard and bespoke designed laser scanning systems for removing enamel and other bonded insulation from magnet wire used in coil windings for batch and in line manufacturing.
Other Laser Marking
Scanning laser systems containing various laser sources for marking and etching onto different materials – polymers and metals.
Lasers for micro-machining and surface processing of Carbon Fiber and other Composite materials. Please contact us to discuss your requirements for this application or similar.
Patented Contrast Measurement technology to measure the contrast of UV laser wire markings to ensure they comply with International Aerospace Industry Standards.
