We are experts in laser micromachining and micro-manufacturing, with a focus on small, precise products with remarkable edge quality and tight tolerances to 5um (.125′′ thickness).
Laser micro-machining, which requires little to no further finishing procedures, has taken over as the norm when feature sizes and tolerances exceed the capability of conventional machining & micromachining lasers
Our laser micromachining services offer a wide choice of materials to match your project’s or part’s needs thanks to a variety of customised laser equipment.
Universities, engineers, and researchers from the aerospace, military, microelectronics, and medical device sectors are a few of our clients.
ADVANTAGES OF LASER OVER CONVENTIONAL MACHINING
Smaller Sizes of Features
Little Heat Effect
0 tooling fees
Leverage of Less Material Waste Petite Lot Sizes
Reduced Finishing Steps and No Dies/Tooling Wear
Metal Parts Using Laser Micromachining
Perfect pieces can be cut from a variety of sheet metal types, including alloy steel, aluminium alloys, brass, carbon steel, molybdenum, stainless steel, titanium, platinum, and tool steel, using UV, CO2, and fibre lasers. Slots for stencil masks, hole orifices for gas flow restrictors, slits in optical apertures or filters, and tubular sections with particular patterns are a few examples of applications. Laser cutting makes it far easier to design and manufacture complicated details and extremely sharp corners.
The majority of alloy steels are regarded as excellent candidates for laser cutting because attention is made to regulate the amount and distribution of additions to the base iron. High strength materials with outstanding laser cut edges include 4130 (chrome moly steel) and 4340 (chrome nickel moly steel). Stainless steel: For clean cutting of sheet metal manufactured components produced from stainless steel, high-power CO2 and Fiber lasers produce dross-free edges without deburring. The laser procedure reduces the HAZ along the cut edge, aiding in the material’s ability to resist corrosion. The cut edges are also straight, tidy, and square.
Titanium: When a focused laser beam emits concentrated heat energy, pure titanium reacts favourably. Although it tends to encourage a thicker oxide layer along the cut edge, the use of an oxygen aid improves cutting speeds.
