Precision we can achieve when turning contact pins

Harnessing cutting-edge techniques, we're able to accurately turn wire probes made from precious metal alloys. This process enables us to achieve a wire diameter of 41 µm, a probe length of 2.9 mm, and a front tip diameter of just 7 µm. Moreover, the laser processing time to turn both the front and back tips is only 0.4 seconds each, showcasing our process efficiency.

FEMTOsecond LASER technology to perform these results

The FEMTOsecond LASER technology is a perfect match for all industries requiring the highest precision without compromising quality and productivity.

Miniaturized components are used in all kind of devices. Several applications – e.g. in the electronics or MedTech world – are not imaginable without very small and tiny parts. Thus, this requires new ways to produce and manufacture these parts. With FEMTO LASER μ-machining there are various processes possible like drilling, cutting and turning. It's compatible with almost all materials that are otherwise very difficult to machine with conventional tools.

With each FEMTOsecond LASER pulse that hits the work-piece, a small amount of material immediately vaporizes. The material removal occurs in a controlled manner leading to no damage, burrs or any negative influences to the material integrity.

Your benefits:

  • FEMTOsecond Laser source < 300 fs
  • Highest level of accuracy and productivity
  • Stable and repeatable quality
  • Cold ablation keeping material integrity (no HAZ)
  • Proven performance in 24/7 industrial environment
