LANHAM, Md., Oct. 30, 2013 — Laser micromachining company Potomac Photonics has added another Coherent UV laser to its micromanufacturing unit, the company said this week. The laser will be optimized for laser micromachining applications, such as leak test hole drilling, probe card hole drilling, precision marking and excision of complex polymer parts.

“This laser will address our growing demand in areas such as laser cutting and hole drilling for prototyping and production applications,” said Sidney Wright, Potomac Photonics vice president of sales.

UV laser micromachining provides a clean and nonthermal cut quality for high-absorption materials. Polyimide, PEEK, polystyrene, nylon polycarbonate, Teflon, glass, and Ultem, among others, can be machined with features as small as 1 micron.
