Applications :
cutting & engraving

  • Tool diameter down to 20 μm

  • Laserbeam precision ±2 μm in x,y,z, and ±2 μrad in θ

  • No deformation of the part / material

  • No impact

  • No impact on the material’s integrity

  • No oxydation

  • Layer by layer micrometric matter removal

Applications :
marking

Color separation through diffraction grating

Periodical nanostructurations

Absolute black

Light trap generated by micrometric surface profiles

Coloration

Micrometric picking

  • Coloring obtained through micrometric pickling of stacked layers of paint (~10 μm each)
  • Extreme precision of the pickling: 10 μm / 20 μm /30 μm revealing crosslayer nuances
  • Resolution of 30,000 dpi (1 µm pixel size)
