SLA Series Laser Ablation Machines

Model SLA Series

Model SLA2021

  • Laser ablation machine equipped with short pulse laser resonators can process a wide range of materials including glass, resin, composite materials such as CFRP, and metal foils such as aluminum, copper, and stainless steel by suppressing thermal effects.
  • Laser ablation processing achieves higher quality processing than conventional laser processing (thin film removal,micro hole drilling, micro grooving and cutting).
  • Laser ablation machine is suitable for contour cutting of FPC and cover lay film cutting such as PI,PTFE and LCP.
  • Non-thermal cutting achieves high quality cutting with less carbonization, minimize HAZ, and less burrs compared to traditional laser cutting.
  • Cutting with suppressed thermal effects can shorten your manufacturing.
  • Laser ablation processing enables micro grooving even with hard materials.
  • Laser ablation processing is excellent for thin film removal processing. such as ITO, Ag and Cu without damaging the substrate.
  • The laser resonator is selectable from a pico-second type and nano-second type laser resonator according to application, and cutting in areas where the conventional pulse laser (micro-second pulse) could not achive.
  • Specific heat treatment to minimal area is also possible.
  • The irradiation optical system is selectable from the beam scanning method and fixed optical method.
  • Ablation processing realizes high quality CFRP cutting so that the lamination state of CFRP can be confirmed.
