Femtosecond Laser Cutting of Metal

The ultrashort pulse widths provided by femtosecond lasers excel in micromachining applications by eliminating post-processing typically required with nanosecond lasers. The rapid short pulses of ultrafast lasers reduce heat transference to surrounding metal, thus minimizing the heat-affect zone altogether. Laser cutting thin metals with ultrafast lasers have minimal dross, raised edges, and no discoloration when using the correct laser settings.
