Laser Micromachining Systems

Laser micromachining is a non-contact process that utilizes a laser for industrial applications requiring micro drilling, micro milling, micro patterning and texturing, micro scribing, wire stripping, and ablation. Features created by laser micromachining achieve very high quality, with little-to-no burring, low surface roughness, and high dimensional accuracy.

Laser micromachining systems typically utilize a multi-pass process that removes small layers and volume of the material with each pass. The laser beam is typically scanned at high velocity over the stationary part, removing small amounts of material precisely to reveal the final feature geometry. In many ways this is analogous to a traditional machining operation, however the laser is able to remove layers of material that are only microns (or tenths of a thousandth of an inch) thick, while still providing very high dimensional accuracy. For ultrashort pulse (USP) lasers, almost any material can be processed – not just metals, ceramics, and glasses, but also plastics and polymers, which can be difficult to machine accurately when feature and part dimensions are very small.
