Laser Micromachining

Our engineers have over forty years of experience perfecting cost-effective, highly repeatable laser micromachining capabilities. From prototyping to production across diverse industries including medical device manufacturing, biotech, and electronics fabrication. Leveraging various laser sources including deep UV excimer and Nd:YAG we can process a wide range of materials and designs.

Micro Laser Welding

Our cutting-edge laser micro welding services enable precise and high-quality continuous welds with smooth, spatter-free surfaces while our novel micro welding technologies are ideal for prototyping and production applications that require exceptional control to prevent over-penetration and substrate damage when welding micro parts. We have developed the capability to laser weld a wide range of materials, including polymers, with extreme accuracy for applications like microfluidic devices where clear-to-clear or clear-to-opaque welding is necessary.

Laser Patterning

Our services include direct laser patterning of coatings including metalized Kapton and enables shallow marking of almost any substrate material. When laser wavelength and pulse duration are chosen, we can achieve the best results with almost any material and remove surfaces with micron precision.

Micro CNC & 3D Printing

Our engineers being more than 30 years experience in digital fabrication, making our service the perfect choice for all your 3D printing needs. With ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 certfications you can be assured of our commitment to quality across:

  • High resolution micro-3d printing
  • Cad file transfer
  • Post-processing
  • Quality control
  • Replication

Hot Embossing

We offer rapid turnaround hot embossing services, producing molds as small as a few microns within 24-48 hours of receiving your design file. Our capabilities extend to embossing a wide range of thermoplastic materials including polystyrene, cyclic olefin copolymers (COC), PMMA, and polyethylene. The hot embossing process delivers clean, high-fidelity replication of intricate patterns over large areas, outperforming traditional machining methods for many polymers.

Bonding & Assembly

We offer cutting-edge bonding and assembly services that utilize laser micro-welding and precision epoxy dispensing techniques, including pulsed infrared lasers for welding metals and thermoplastics. Our laser micro-welding capabilities enable joining a wide range of metal and organic materials, including stainless steel, NiTi alloys, and a variety of plastics. By carefully adjusting laser energy and pulse duration, along with suitable part fixturing, we achieve effective welding of miniature parts with high yield. Alternatively, our precision epoxy dispensing approach is an effective solution for assembly of electronic or optical devices, with experience in dot sizes as small as 150 microns, encapsulation, and underfill compounds.
