Microwave Machining

A new drilling technique uses microwave radiation, is less expensive than laser drilling and costs little more than a mechanical tool. The drill silently bores through materials with a needle-like antenna that emits intense microwave radiation. The microwaves create a hot spot around the bit, almost 2,000 degrees C. Once the material melts or softens, the bit can be pushed in, creating holes from a millimeter to a centimeter wide.
