3D-Micromac shows FSLA™, a novel laser processing solution for transparent materials at SID 2016

3D-Micromac AG, the industry leader in laser micromachining, is going to introduce its FSLA™ (Flow Supported Laser Ablation) technology at SID 2016. The sophisticated machining strategy is perfectly suited for the generation of structures like taper-free holes or even holes with negative taper, and columns with rectangular walls in glass, sapphire, and other transparent materials. Typical dimensions of those structures are in the range of a few 10 microns up to a few 100 microns. The machining by ultrashort-pulsed laser is stress-free and without thermal impact. The achievable wall roughness is approx. 0.5 μm (Ra).
The FSLA™ technology opens up new vistas for the production of shaped holes and nozzles, and surface modifications in display glass or sapphire.
