Precision we can achieve

Round holes of Ø 300 μm are milled with a 350 μm pitch into both Torlon and Vespel materials, featuring a 500 μm thickness and an impressively swift cycle time of 0.6 seconds. Torlon also accommodates a countersunk step hole, precisely measured at Ø 3.0 mm with a 1 mm depth and Ø 2.5 mm with a 0.8 mm depth. In contrast, Vespel showcases the expertise with step holes from Ø 400 μm down to 650 μm, set at a pitch of 750 μm, and through holes meticulously drilled to Ø 200 μm and a depth of 650 μm.

Mechanical Micromachining technology to perform these results

Mechanical micromachining, commonly known as micromachining, is a specialized manufacturing technology that involves the use of micro tools, such as micro-endmills or drillbits, with geometrically defined cutting edges. This subtractive fabrication process crafts devices or features with dimensions in the micrometer range. It mirrors traditional machining in approach but operates on a distinctly smaller scale, necessitating specialized equipment and techniques to define microscale structures or components. Mechanical micromachining provides:

  • Flexibility
  • Cost-effective solution for small-batches
  • Complex geometry
  • Reduced waste
  • Integration
  • Scalability
  • Direct production
