Laser Micromachining Systems

Laser micromachining is a non-contact process which utilizes a laser for micro drilling, micro milling, micromachining, micro patterning, micro scribing and ablation for industrial applications. The cut and feature edges are of high quality with little no burring, low surface roughness and dimensional accuracy.

Laser micromachining systems utilize a multi pass process that removes small layers and volume of the material on each pass. Typically the laser is moved at high speeds over the stationary part, going over the cut path many times to achieve the feature. This is analogous with any machining operation in general, however the layer thickness removed can be in the microns and tenths of thousandths of an inch providing very high dimensional accuracy. For ultrafast or ultra short pulse USP lasers, almost any material can be processed, particularly plastics and polymers, which are difficult to machine accurately when feature and part size dimensions are small.
