UK Subcontractor Invests in Laser Micromachining System

Laser Lines Ltd has completed its’ first UK installation of an Optec “ProMaster” laser system at Laser Micromachining Ltd of St. Asaph, North Wales. The ProMaster is a compact excimer laser system with short UV wavelength and nanosecond pulse duration to ensure accurate micromachining down to the µm scale with minimum kerf and thermal effects. Typically these systems are used to create ultra small features (holes, slots and channels) in a wide range of polymers, thin metallic and oxide films.

Laser Micromachining Limited (LML) is a company focused on helping industry exploit novel uses of lasers for product development and manufacturing. It provides flexible, responsive and cost-effective services and allows customers to access the latest laser micromachining processes to gain a competitive advantage in emerging micro and nanotechnology sectors. Nadeem Rizvi, LML’s Managing Director commented: “The addition of the ProMaster to our existing suite of seven other micromachining laser systems will enhance the capability we can offer our customers and provide LML with a wider range of precision laser manufacturing solutions. We have been extremely impressed with the ProMaster system – it is easy to use, highly flexible for our demanding needs and very reliable. It has already proven itself to be an invaluable tool for the production of micro-parts for our industrial clients”.

Gary Broadhead, Sales Director of Laser Lines, comments “Laser Micromachining Ltd has been very successful in providing high quality laser manufacturing services to industry and we are delighted that such a prestigious organisation selected the ProMaster to enhance that service. We look forward to building this relationship to expand the uptake of laser technology by the UK high precision industrial community”
