New booklet from Laser Micromachining helps industry understand laser manufacturing options

To illustrate the exciting possibilities offered by laser manufacturing techniques, Laser Micromachining Limited (LML) has produced a small booklet for designers and engineers working in microtechnology industries.

The 32-page booklet, which is available for free, shows a wide selection of different materials machined with lasers to demonstrate the great potential of laser machining methods.

LML’s Managing Director, Dr Nadeem Rizvi, said, “We have produced this mini booklet at LML to highlight how micro and nanotechnologies can provide that all-important platform for innovation in a wide variety of materials such as polymers, ceramics, metals, semiconductors and thin films.

“Here at LML we are helping companies, large and small, to seize the growing opportunities from next generation engineering, so they can gain that competitive edge in the marketplace. Industrial sectors we are currently working within include, biotechnology, microelectronics, photonics, medical, energy, sensors and semiconductors, and the possibilities offered by laser-based manufacturing are endless.”

LML also operates the UK Laser Micromachining Centre (UK-LMC) from its state-of-the-art facilities in St Asaph, North Wales. The UK-LMC provides open access to the latest laser techniques, allowing businesses to keep pace with the rapidly developing nature of laser technology and also to utilise the many benefits of laser prototyping and production. In addition to providing easy access to high precision micro-fabrication services, users can also get free advice and guidance on laser manufacturing options and the booklet adds to the free help which is available to companies.
