Transitioning From Mechanical to Laser Micro Machining

We’ve noticed that more PCB, flex manufacturers, and micro machining shops are starting to make the transition from mechanical to laser processing. Whether it be for routing, drilling, or cutting, laser seems to be the faster and ideal solution to meet the growing demand for finer features on thinner, unique…

Laser Processing: Ultra-Fast Lasers

Ultra-fast lasers, more specifically femtosecond lasers, are used to assist in micromachining applications for manufacturing medical devices, glass cutting, and semiconductor, and PCB materials. Micromachining applications that once were mechanical processes and nanosecond lasers now use ultra-fast lasers. Advantages of using ultra-fast lasers for micromachining processes such as routing, skiving, drilling, and…
