In addition to materials such ceramics and polymers, Laser Light Technologies can also micro machine a wide range of other materials, including:

  • Titanium
  • 304 Stainless steel
  • Glass
  • Graphite
  • Germanium
  • Silicon
  • Adhesives

That, however, is not the limit.

As technology advances, Laser Light Technologies’ research and development teams are continually expanding our machining capabilities. With new techniques and processes, we can machine materials that, even recently, were not feasible to machine—including multi-layered materials and substrates coated with metallic deposition, as well as unique and client-proprietary materials. Our engineers are ready to work with you to fulfill your unique needs and specifications.

What typical materials can Laser Light Technologies machine?

A full overview of the materials we can machine can be found on our materials page.

Can Laser Light Technologies precision machine features into parts that are already molded?

We can machine parts directly from your selected material or perform additional machining for precision features on pre-produced parts.

What materials are suitable for laser cutting?

For a full list of materials and applications, see our laser cutting page.

What materials are suitable for laser drilling?

For a full list of materials and applications, see our laser drilling page.

What materials are suitable for laser ablation?

For a full list of materials and applications, see our laser ablation page.

Can Laser Light Technologies machine any materials other than those listed?

Beyond our standard machining for ceramics and polymers, we often process orders for cutting or drilling titanium, 304 stainless steel, glass, graphite, and semiconductor materials such as germanium and silicon. Laser Light Technologies is constantly developing new techniques for micro machining new and different materials.

If your project involves a material you don’t see listed, contact us to schedule a discussion with our engineers and experts to describe your special material needs—we may already be working on a similar solution, or we can design and develop a solution for your unique machining needs.

Can Laser Light Technologies handle delicate materials for medical devices?

In short: Yes. Our technologies, along with our partnerships, give us the ability to perform laser cutting, drilling, and ablation for a number of clients in the medical device and biotechnology fields. 

For example, our collaboration with Spectrum Plastics Group has allowed us to expand and extend product offerings for new catheter and medical device applications that require tubing or assembled components.

We also have a 1,100-square-foot ISO Class 5 enclosure, along with multiple ISO Class 7 enclosures, to ensure a proper environment for machining and packaging these other materials.

We understand that these parts are often small, delicate, and need to be handled in a cleanroom environment while still meeting very precise requirements. If you are looking for a partner with whom to discuss requirements, contacts us.
