What if you could cost effectively laser drill in high volumes at the sub micron level while eliminating debris material?

Ultra fast throughput, cost-efficient drilling.

The ability to create micron-sized patterns in materials from leather to aluminum is one of the most exciting applications for the ESI Laser Micromachining Platforms. Whether it’s microscopic blind vias in PCBs or perforations that enable the passage of energy or matter through solid materials, the ESI Laser Micromachining Platforms can cost-effectively deliver consistent results. Among the common technologies made possible by laser drilling technologies include ink jet print heads, advanced filters in medical devices and more efficient fuel injection systems in cars.

An emerging application space involves the use of laser drilling to allow for the movement of sound, light, gases and fluid across a solid or flexible medium without impacting design aesthetics. In some applications these holes can be smaller than a human hair and are essentially invisible to the naked eye. Lasers support requirements for uniform diameters, precise positional accuracy and debris-free results. Equally critical is the ability to taper holes from back to front or to create unique shapes such as microscopic venturis to tune holes to achieve desired results.

Apply unique engineering expertise to transform large format material.

The Garnet micromachining platform is ESI’s low cost of ownership platform built in China for fast delivery to Chinese manufacturing. Optimized to deliver high volume production throughput for laser drilling on large format materials at the  highest accuracy of a mid range laser on a 300x300mm stage. The platform takes advantage of ESI’s built-in-design extendibility  for multiple lasers, optics and stage configurations to meet the short ramp time needed to build your next device.

The Garnet can be easily configured to accommodate a wide variety of laser sources with different powers, wavelengths and pulse widths, from nanosecond to femtosecond, to optimize processes for a broad spectrum of materials. An ESI-proprietary real-time control system synchronizes the timing of laser pulses with laser beam positioning and movement of the work surface.
