Laser Micromachining

Laser micromachining is the generic term for a process used to make tiny features in parts -  measured in micrometers or millimeters.  Pulsed lasers effectively complete this work by depositing very small, finite amounts of energy into a material, resulting in extremely precise and reproducible material removal. Suitable deposition of energy enables the laser to ablate, cut, drill, machine or scribe a material.

Two common micromachining processes are laser drilling and laser micro milling.
