Laser micromanufacturing is the process of cutting, drilling, marking, and welding of material involving micro-parts of minute components. Micromanufacturing uses lasers with wavelengths from UV to IR to create the specific design or product. Used by a variety of industries including automotive, medical, research, and technology, it is used for production of medical devices, production of intricate and complex designs, prototype creation, and research and product development. From a manufacturing perspective, it is used for a variety of purposes including additive manufacturing, CNC machining, and injection molding. Take time to learn about the laser micromanufacturing process and its importance.
By: Alex Pozdin | Matt Nipper, PhD Laser micromachining is an efficient way to manufacture light restricting components such as, apertures, optical slits, pinholes and reticles. These components are critical to the performance of many systems in the defense, life sciences, and medical industries. When performance matters, laser micromachining can deliver optimal precision outcomes. Laser … Continued
