Cladding and Coating: Laser cladding and coating processes deposit material onto the surface of a substrate to improve its properties, such as corrosion resistance or thermal conductivity. These techniques are used in the oil and gas industry for reconditioning worn components.
Material Processing and Etching: Laser machines can be used to etch or ablate material from a surface with precision. This is utilized in the semiconductor industry for microfabrication and in the production of printed circuit boards (PCBs).
Drilling and Micro-Machining: Laser drilling and micro-machining machines create small holes, channels, or fine features with extreme precision. These processes are used in the electronics industry for creating microcircuits and in medical device manufacturing for producing tiny components.
Surface Treatment and Hardening: Laser surface treatment and hardening machines improve the properties of materials by altering their surface characteristics. This is commonly used in the automotive and aerospace industries to enhance the wear resistance and durability of parts.
