Most polymers are excellent candidates for our laser equipment – whether b-stage epoxy (shown above) or silicone rubber. FR4, duroids, as well as PTFE composites are polymers . Eccosorb and other metal loaded rubbers are used in high frequency circuit environments.
Polymers are laser cut in a wide range of thicknesses, .001″ (.025mm) to .125″ (3mm) for example. Laser cutting is a good alternative to die cutting as well as molding. Woven polymers are bonded at the cut edge thereby reducing fray.
Laser is well suited to prototype volumes as well as high production.
