Etching - Controlled ablation

Laser engraving is carried out by removing material layer by layer to obtain a 2D or 3D effect on all material types.

The characteristics of the etching - controlled ablation process:

Benefits Etching - Controlled ablation


Benefits

  • Controlled ablation up to a few μm depth
  • 3D part machining
Performance Etching - Controlled ablation


Performance

  • Roughness less than a few μm
  • Tolerance of a few μm
  • Accuracy of a few μm
Throughput Etching - Controlled ablation


Throughput

Variable depending on the material and the pulse duration: on the order of a few mm3.min-1
