The demand for smaller and more intricate products and components, driven largely by the medical device and consumer electronics industries, has encouraged the development of advanced micromachining systems capable of meeting the needs of these and other high-tech product markets.
Laser micromachining systems incorporating ultrashort pulse femtosecond lasers are meeting these manufacturing challenges thanks to the ability to machine a wide variety of materials at high speed with submicron accuracy and little or no thermal damage.
- Metals and metal alloys
- Carbon fibers
- Glass & sapphire
- Optical fibers
- Thin films
- Delicate materials like Nitinol and PLLA
- And more
The ultrashort pulse length and high peak power vaporizes material before heat can transmit into the part, thus preventing unacceptable functional or cosmetic changes to the material, including delicate or brittle materials. The final part quality is such that no post-processing, such as polishing, is required.
Whatever the micromachining task – cutting, welding, drilling, marking, ablation, or some combination thereof – a femtosecond laser micromachining system will do the job accurately, rapidly, and economically. The combination of precision, quality, and processing speed makes femtosecond laser micromachining the process of choice for the manufacture of complex parts and components.
