Laser Machining and Drilling

 

Laser Micromachining

In laser micromachining, tightly focused laser beam provides very controlled small amounts of energy into the material to cause it to melt or vaporize and enable material removal with or without assist gas. Micromachining includes processes such as laser micro-cutting, ablation, scribing and laser milling.
 

Laser Drilling

Laser drilling is a well-established industrial laser application that can produce both blind and through holes in metals and non-metals. Laser drilling involves heating up the material to its melting point or vaporization temperature and using assist gas to blow away the molten material or vapor.
