In any manufacturing environment, there is always the potential for problems. Whether errors occur in design or production, you may be left with a large number of non-functional parts. It is for this reason that MLT offers a range of precision laser rework and recovery options. These options include such technologies as:

  • Selective solder mask removal
  • Controlled depth dielectric removal

CAD or Data Requirements

CAD system integration and custom file converters enable flexible, laser manufacturing from customer-provided data. Although most file types are accepted, the preferred file types are Gerber, Excellon, DXF, or other 2D formats. In most cases, non-scaled data is required as MLT will make the appropriate scaling or offsets to meet part dimensions.

If concerned about compatibility of your data format or CAD/CAM tool, please contact MLT Sales for more information. For more CAM/CAD guidelines and detailed requirements, click CAD Requirements.
