CO2 Laser Drill/Machine/Scribe 

CO2 ceramic flex crop

This 1″x1″x.010″ alumina substrate shows the

intricate patterns and thin cross sections produced

by laser machining. Also, many designs incorporate

alignment features such as tooling hole and slot

for subsequent processing steps requiring precision

but non-optical, alignment.


Step and repeat arrays are widely used for

gaining efficiencies during printing.

Laser work can be performed before and

after the printing steps.

The arrays can be laser scribed/scored for final separation.

This is really where Laser Machining Services became widespread and helped integrate new materials into

electronics. The CO2 laser is especially powerful for shaping substrates or adding through holes to electrically

insulating materials that will be used as circuit boards – particularly high reliability materials for Military and Space applications.
