Laser cutting allows the manufacture of precision parts from all types of materials, even transparent and hard, like silicon carbide or diamond.
The characteristics of the laser cutting process are:
- Adaptable quality and productivity depending on the laser used
- Constant quality over time
- No thermal effect
- Thin film cutting (a few μm)
- Tolerances of a few μm
- Precision of a few μm
Depending on material and thickness considered to be about mm3.min-1.W-1
- Precession head if without conicity
- Cutting head
- Quality improvement with short wavelengths
Adaptable quality, surface roughness on the flanks of a few hundreds of 1 nm

Laser shock peeningThe laser shock peening process improves fatigue and corrosion resistance through the use of shock waves greater than GPa on metallic materials.
Machining of transparent materialsThe machining of transparent materials consists in cutting, welding, drilling and engraving by minimising mechanical stresses.
Laser drillingLaser drilling allows you to obtain holes of variable geometry with a large aspect ratio, crossing or not all types of materials and all thicknesses.
Surface texturingSurface functionalisation or texturing by laser allows you to create effects or give new properties to all types of materials, according to the desired function.
Intra-volume markingIntra-volume marking by laser allows very local modification of the refractive index in transparent materials. This modification allows registration of patterns in 3D to functionalise or create a decorative effect in the material.
