Laser Material Processing: Micromachining
Laser Micromachining, also known as laser plating or laser milling, is an accurate material ablation process at micron level.
What is Laser Micromachining?
Laser micromachining, also known as laser plating or laser milling, is an accurate material ablation process at micron level. It is a form of laser processing in which the material to be processed is transferred from solid to gaseous in a very short pulse duration.
Laser micromachining is able to process materials of various shapes. Thin (2D) products can be cut, drilled, and patterned, and their surfaces can be laser polished. The same holds for 2.5D products, such as stents to keep arteries open in the human body, as well as 3D shaped products. Products with high aspect ratios of 1:20 are easily machinable.
