With a focus on precise, small parts (.125′′ thickness) that demand great edge quality and close tolerances to 5um, we specialise in laser micromachining and micro-manufacturing services.
Laser micro-machining has taken over as the norm with little to no additional finishing procedures when feature sizes and tolerances exceed traditional machining capabilities.
Our laser micromachining services use a variety of specialised laser equipment and a wide selection of materials to meet the needs of your project or product & micro precision laser cutting
Universities, engineers, and researchers in the medical device, microelectronics, military, and aerospace industries are a few of our clients.
LASER BENEFITS OVER CONVENTIONAL MACHINING
More Compact Feature Sizes
Small Heat Effect
Zero tooling expenses
Utilization of Less Material Low Lot Sizes
Reduced finishing steps due to no dies or tool wear
Metal Parts Micro-Made by Laser
Many different forms of sheet metal, including alloy steel, aluminium alloys, brass, carbon steel, molybdenum, stainless steel, titanium, platinum, and tool steel, can be perfectly cut into precise pieces using UV, CO2, and fibre lasers. Slits in optical apertures or filters, hole orifices for gas flow restrictors, slots for stencil masks, and tubular pieces with particular patterns are a few examples of applications. The production of exquisite detail and extremely sharp edges is substantially facilitated by the use of laser cutting in design and manufacture.
Alloy steel and tool steel: The majority of alloy steels are thought to be excellent candidates for the laser cutting process because attention is made to manage the amount and distribution of additions to the base iron. High strength materials with superb laser cut edges include 4130 (chrome moly steel) and 4340 (chrome nickel moly steel). These materials are both extremely strong. High-power CO2 and Fiber lasers produce dross-free edges without deburring for clean cutting of stainless steel sheet metal manufactured components. The laser procedure reduces the HAZ along the cut edge, aiding in the preservation of the material’s corrosion resistance. Likewise, the cut edges are tidy, neat, and square.
Titanium: When exposed to concentrated heat energy from a laser beam, pure titanium reacts favourably. Although using an oxygen aid increases cutting speeds, it also tends to encourage a thicker oxide layer along the cut edge.
