Laser Machining – CO2

Laser machining of thin film substrate materials

CO2 lasers direct the output of a high power laser through a series of optics working with a CNC system to enable machining of various thin film substrates. The 75 micron diameter laser beam is used to machine the substrate. Substrate material subjected to the laser beam melts and the molten slag is blown away by a jet of gas. The cleanliness and quality of the CO2 machined edges vary with the material.
