How to increase efficiency of drilling process with micron precision machining?

micron precision machining

Drilling can be used to manufacture a wide range of components across different industries. In micron precision machining, a single laser can produce varying hole sizes in different materials like glass, rubber, plastic, metal, or even diamonds.

Laser drilling can be done using 2 specific techniques.  The percussion or the cutting out methods, with or without a precession movement in order to cut without taper (0° conicity or controlled conicity).

Laser is ideal for hard crystal drilling such as ruby with holes of 50µm diameter in a 300µm thickness. The result of the process is without burrs and taper angle. In steel, LASEA machines can allow holes with 20 µm diameter on 100 µm thickness.
