Ceramics are valued because of their extreme hardness, dimensional stability and temperature resistance. Lasers are ideal for direct structuring as well as drilling and cutting of fired and unfired ceramics.
While many laser companies can perform simple ceramic drilling in alumina, Micron Laser Technology has developed processes to create complex geometric features with excellent edge quality and speed with a wide range of ceramics and ceramic impregnated materials.
