Laser Drilling

The process uses a highly coherent, focused beam of light as its drill bit. Because there is no mechanical contact with the part at the point of drilling there is no tool wear, bit breakage, excessive part heating, or chips produced. The laser accomplishes this by heating the metal to above its melting point, with minimal heat impact. Materials that can be laser drilled range from ceramics to super alloys, common steels to precious metals and virtually all non-metals. Laser drilling has been used for everything from single parts for research, to long term production runs in the millions.
