Laser technology has many advantages over traditional drilling methods. It enables more precise drilling, makes no mechanical contact with plastic parts and lets you switch between hole sizes and shapes quickly and easily.
Depending on the order you need to fill, you may require different hole sizes for a specific part. Thanks to laser drilling, you can stock undrilled parts and then drill the required hole size once the order is placed. As a result, you don’t have to stock the same part with different pre-drilled holes. Our custom software even lets you change hole size and shape in real time without stopping your production line.
Other advantages of laser drilling include:
- Non-contact process. Laser drilling eliminates cleaning, sharpening and replacing bits and other parts.
- Flexibility. Depending on your application and polymer, easily tune hole shapes and sizes via simple software inputs.
- Taper control. Control taper dimensions and shapes by micromachining hole edges. We even offer microscope measurement capabilities to profile holes in three dimensions.
- On-the-Fly Processing. Our systems drill holes as parts travel down the production line—increasing your production speed and flexibility even further.
