For the shaping of extremely porous structures, the femtosecond laser has established itself as a unique instrument. A femtosecond laser micromachining system can be used for the ultimate in ultrafast machining. Laser micromachining can be used to weld, cut, drill, and make other material modifications to achieve features on the single or double-digit micrometer level.
Femtosecond lasers facilitate high precision processing without any heat effect on the substrate: direct writing, mask projection, and interference. The femtosecond laser micromachining system (femtofab) is a multi-utility laser machine designed for numerous industrial applications. For instance, the unique porous structure of polyurea aerogel has many attractive applications, including lightweight thermal capabilities. Picosecond and femtosecond laser micromachining has developed as a reliable tool for precise manufacturing of these materials and electronic industries.
These processes are used to make fine drilling and machining into hard metals and ceramics and soft plastic to form various nano and microtextures to improve surface functions and properties in products. By aiming the laser beam on the surface, direct writing is performed. Initially, the micromachining industry regarded the femtosecond laser just as conventional wisdom perceived back in the early 1990s.
Modern laser micromachining and texturing services have taken another big step forward thanks to femtosecond laser micromachining. These systems are protected by a Class 1 equivalent laser safety enclosure and controlled through an advanced engineer software window.
Rarely anyone expected that so many industries around the world would rely on it for many applications. The configuration is selected and carefully tuned according to a specific laser micromachining application.
