Laser micro processing with highest precision

The continuous development of the ultra-short pulse laser technology used in micromachining is opening up more and more application fields. With our Koala and Precession Elephant, we can offer you two different laser processing heads to meet a wide variety of demands: from simplified micro hole drilling right through to implementing highly complex drilling and cutting applications. These two innovative systems feature different system designs based on patented technologies, and will impress you with their ultra-high precision and reliability.

Tailor-made solutions for your application

As a specialist in the area of laser micromachining our customers take benefit from the combination of technologically innovative system solutions and in-house laser process development. We offer you comprehensive expertise in the development of tailor-made solutions for your application. In our laser laboratories we are implementing test setups, and produce samples using our Koala and Precession Elephant 2 micromachining systems along with various handling systems and USP laser sources.

 

Thanks to the versatility of our systems, they can be used for a wide variety of applications and materials, for example laser micro-drilling and micro-cutting of metals, ceramics, plastics, glass, gemstones, diamonds, and lots more.

 

As part of our laser development process we create samples for you and examine the results in our comprehensively equipped materials laboratory. This enables us to obtain important information on crucial parameters such as the achievable qualities or process times and creating highly practical solutions that offer you the greatest possible planning and investment certainty.
