Ultrafast Laser Processing

Ultrafast lasers—including femtosecond and picosecond lasers—are ideal for precision micromachining applications, such as processing semiconductors, flat panel displays and various thin-film materials.

Eliminate Heat Discoloration with Ultrafast Lasers

Thanks to short pulse widths and high repetition rates, ultrafast lasers excel in applications that have traditionally utilized nanosecond lasers. Metals can now be cut or engraved with little to no heat affect zones (HAZ), eliminating any heat discoloration and excess slag when done correctly. Micro tubing, thin foils, and plastics all benefit from these new lasers and we are actively researching new ways to apply them.

Ultrafast Laser Solutions

Applications may include:

  • Precision micromachining
  • Black marking of stainless steel or aluminum
  • Surface micro-structuring and texturing
  • Multilayer polymer film cutting
  • Battery and thin metal foil cutting
  • Sapphire LED wafer scribing
  • Thin film ablation for solar, PV or flat panel displays
  • Precise marking of metals, polymers or glass
  • Micromachining of ceramics

The Absolute Best Customer Service Around

Working with the entire Control Micro Systems team on our project was a pleasure. CMS was capable of meeting and exceeding our goals. They successfully designed and built a machine which increased our throughput by 550%! We are so glad we chose to move forward with CMS.

Jim B., Custom Wire Technologies, Inc.

In the three years ACR has owned the CMS laser, it has worked flawlessly. In the few instances where ACR needed support in programming, CMS was quick to respond.

Mike S., ACR Electronics, Inc.

CMS have been excellent partners in the development of new, complex equipment for our business. CMS built multiple machines for us. Each machine had a different purpose, however the CMS team worked openly & honestly with us to agree on optimal solutions for each one.
