UV Lasers

Precision, Repeatability, and Tight Tolerances

How the UV Laser Works

The shorter wavelength ultraviolet (UV) lasers mean a shorter, more focused positioning laser, resulting in a higher precision process. The material is cut without burs and possible pressure from the cutting tool. The shorter wavelength also causes no damage and no change to the mechanical or electrical properties of the workpiece, making it ideal for nonmetal insulating materials such as Kapton, PTFE, and Nomex paper.

In addition to the low workpiece temperature, the high-energy photons that exist in ultraviolet light allow the UV laser to be used with non-metallic and other various materials. Source from stylecnc.com

Using three different technologies, custom metal parts can be built for thousands of applications for a large variety of industries. By combining multiple technology options, a hybrid precision part, unavailable anywhere else in the global marketplace, can be custom manufactured.

Thin Metal Parts regularly works with the aerospace, computer, and electronic industries to build custom precision parts used in industrial and consumer goods applications... parts such as metal encoder wheels, metal mesh, and print heads. In addition, custom parts are developed daily in research and development as the design/process engineer group teams with customers to develop prototypes and production items in medical, manufacturing, and scientific instrument sectors.

All products are custom manufactured to meet customer needs and specifications, including DFARS and RoHS compliance. These quick-turn, cost-effective, low tooling cost processes offer excellent production alternatives to traditional fabrication methods for metal parts in high volumes and prototyping.
